On Saturday, Sept. 8, the Washington College field hockey team took on Maryland natives Stevenson University on home turf in Kirby Stadium. The Mustangs walked away with a 2-0 win.

Stevenson took the lead with 24 minutes left in the first half, scoring off a tipped shot in a breakaway. With nine minutes left, the Mustangs had another scoring opportunity, but senior Emily Pantazes gave a diving effort to keep the ball away from the goal. Pantazes’s interception and clear in the opposite direction kept the score 1-0. WC trailed by one in shots, with the Mustangs having a 7-6 advantage.

Within the first three minutes of the second half, Stevenson had a one-on-one breakaway with senior goalie Morgan Domanico, but Domanico was able to swat it away to keep it a 1-0 game.

With less than 20 minutes to go in the second half, Domanico again saved the goal on a one-on-one. With 17 minutes to go, the Mustangs found the upper right corner of the cage to bring the score to 2-0.

Domanico, who has been a staple in the Shorewomen’s program, had 10 saves on the night in 70:00 minutes of play.

Stevenson advanced to 3-1 on the season, while WC fell to 0-3. The Shorewomen’s next game will be on Saturday, Sept. 15 against Centennial Conference opponent Gettysburg College. The following day, WC will play York College. Both games will be played away.
