Field Hockey - Grohowski Scores but Wilkes Falls 2-1 to Ithaca

SELINSGROVE, PA – A Wilkes University field hockey come from behind effort fell just short in a 2-1 defeat to Ithaca College on Sunday afternoon in the consolation game of the Connie Harnum Classic held at Susquehanna University.

After trailing the Bombers 2-0 at halftime, Wilkes (0-2) pulled to within a goal when sophomore Amber Grohowski tallied her first career goal with just under three minutes remaining in the contest. Megan Kane provided the pass off a penalty corner for her second assist of the young season.

The Lady Colonels continued their push to tie the score before regulation ended but shots by Kayla Gronkowski and Gianna Gennetts were unsuccessful in the closing seconds.

Michaela Donohue provided both first half goals for Ithaca (1-1).

Wilkes held the 12-7 advantage in both shots and penalty corners for the game. Shots on goal were even at four apiece.

Haley Gayoski and Kane led Wilkes with three shots apiece. Dallas Kendra made one save for the Lady Colonels while Savanna Lenker made three saves for the Bombers.

Wilkes again played without three-time First Team All-Middle Atlantic Conference Freedom selection Marissa Surdy.

The Lady Colonels continue the non-conference portion of the schedule with the home opener at Schmidt Stadium on Wednesday, September 6 at 7:00 p.m. against Marywood University.
