While most students go home for fall break, the Washington College Field Hockey team stayed in order to prepare for the remainder of their season. On Saturday, Oct. 5, they took on McDaniel for a 2-0 sweep.

This is the Shorewomen’s first Conference win of the season and the team’s first win since Sept. 7.

Only three days after this momentous win, the Shorewomen kept the momentum rolling to defeat Swarthmore by the same margin.

For their latest game, they lost to the Dickinson College Red Devils 2-0 on Saturday the 12th.

Junior Kailyn Brandt and freshman Anna Harrington were the two to score in a victory over the McDaniel College Green Terror. Junior Grace Steele and freshman Julianna Sterling were both awarded assists for the goals, while junior Kayla Zapcic allowed no goals and had two saves on the contest.

Using that momentum in the contest against the Garnet, Steele found the back of the net in the second quarter. Brandt added another goal to her career statistics, as she pushed it past the goal tender with 4:22 left in the same quarter.

Junior Parker Wolf was able to gather two assists on the day, while Zapcic added three saves.

On Saturday, Oct. 12, the Red Devils were too much for WC to handle. Zapcic had eight saves on the contest, while allowing two in the 60 minutes. The Shorewomen had eight shots on the day and six penalty corners.

Their next contest will be on Oct. 19th, against #8 Franklin & Marshall on Kibler Field at Roy Kirby Jr. Stadium
