ASU field hockeys loses both weekend games

ASU’s field hockey team lost both of their games over the weekend.

In Saturday’s game, the Mountaineers were pitted against the Georgetown Hoyas.

ASU put up a valiant effort, but ended up losing the game 3-2.

The Mountaineers received the first point after a score from sophomore forward Jordyn Warren.

However, Georgetown quickly fired back with three straight scores in 11 minutes.

Senior forward Meghan High scored one more time for App toward the end of the game, but there wasn’t enough time for the team to pull ahead.

Despite the loss, Head Coach Brandi Kist was not displeased with the team’s effort.

“There were definitely a lot of good things,” Kist said. “We finished on the penalty corners, scoring goals and we fought and played really hard for a full 70 minutes.”

High was also satisfied with the game’s outcome.

“Even though we did not come out with the win, we played with a lot of intensity,” High said. “We know the things that we need to improve on and we are going to go forth from there.”

The second game of the series placed the Mountaineers against William and Mary. Though the Apps were able to get a couple of shots, W and M proved to be too much, beating the App 7-2.

William and Mary backed Appalachian into a corner quickly, taking a 2-0 lead within the first 20 minutes of the game.

High and Appalachian’s freshman midfielder Amber Boot scored two quick goals in the second quarter, but it wasn’t enough to win the game. 

Senior defender Casey Lammando said the team played with intensity, but they have a few aspects to work on as a team.

“We just need to work on pushing up offensively as a team and keep the ball in our offensive end,” Lammando said.

ASU’s next away game is Sept. 1 versus Robert Morris University.
