Reese's Late Goal Lifts Field Hockey Past Mary Washington in Season Opener

Washington, Md. ... Senior Cindy Reese (Westminster, Md./Westminster) scored with 4:36 left in the game and Frostburg State held on for an exciting 4-3 win over Mary Washington College in its season-opener at Washington College.

"This was one of the best field hockey games I have ever seen," said Bobcat first-year head coach Nicole Bonvouloir, whose squad made her a winner in her coaching debut. "We had good team play all around."

Mary Washington (1-1) jumped out to an early 2-0 lead after the first five minutes of play, as Adrienne Trombley and Meghan McMahon found the net just 1:05 apart.

However, Frostburg State (1-0) fought back with three straight goals to take a 3-2 lead at halftime.

Senior Katie Harrington (Prince Frederick, Md./Calvert) brought the Bobcats even with a pair of goals in just over three minutes. She put the Bobcats on the board at the 27:10 mark before tying the game with 24:09 remaining in the half.

Bobcat junior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin), who scored a school single-season record 22 goals a year ago, then gave FSU its first lead of the afternoon when she blasted a shot from the 16-yard mark into the upper right corner of the net at the 16:55 mark.

The Eagles struck early again in the second half when Jessica Morris tied the score just 1:23 after intermission, and the teams entered into a defensive battle until Reese's clutch goal closed out the scoring.

Frostburg State won despite being outshot 28-13 and taking just two penalty corners compared to 12 for the Eagles.

Bobcat sophomore Jessica Moore (Bowie, Md./Culpeper) made nine saves to earn the victory, while Meredith MacDonald stopped eight shots.

FSU returns to action on Sunday when they face host Washington College at 1:00 p.m.
