Field Hockey - LHU edged out at Georgetown

The LHU field hockey team dropped its first game of the 2017 season today as the Bald Eagles were edged out at Georgetown, 2-0
WASHINGTON – The Lock Haven University field hockey team (3-1) saw its season-opening win streak come to an end today as the Bald Eagles dropped their first game of the 2017 campaign after being edged out 2-0 at Georgetown University (3-1).

The host Hoyas scored once in each half.

Tamia Roach (Petit Valley, Trinidad and Tobago/St. Joseph’s Convent Port-of-Spain) led LHU’s effort with three shots and goalkeeper Paige Stuppy (Jonestown, Pa./Northern Lebanon) finished with five saves as she did all she could to pace the defense.

The Bald Eagles entered today’s game at 3-0 after opening the season with wins over Sacred Heart, Central Michigan and Towson. Today’s game was the second straight on the road and second in a six-match road swing.

After four games Alyscia Smith (Newport, Pa./Newport) – Week 1’s Atlantic 10 Conference (A-10) Co-Player of the Week - leads Lock Haven with 11 points. Her four goals are a team-high and she’s tied for the team lead.

The Bald Eagles will return to action on Friday, Sept. 8 at 6:30 on the road at Colgate. On Sunday, Sept. 10, Lock Haven heads to Siena (12 p.m.).
