Field Hockey shutout over the weekend

The UVM field hockey team dropped to 3-4 overall this weekend after a pair of road losses to Kent State and UMass.

On Friday night, UVM controlled play for much of the first half versus Kent State. However, the Golden Flashes were able to put in two deflections by junior goalkeeper Kristen Heavens towards the end of the first half.

Kent State’s Allison Kittelberger scored early in the second half, and the Cats were unable to trim the deficit, losing 3-0.

The next night, UVM travelled UMass, where once again they were unable to get many opportunities on the offensive side. UMass outshot the Cats 15-6 during the course of the game.

Despite seven saves from Heavens, two second-half goals by the Minutemen in the span of eight minutes were enough to top the Cats, 2-0.

UVM will play another road game, Wednesday versus Dartmouth, before returning home Sunday against William and Mary.
