Mountaineers face another NorPac loss

Appalachian’s field hockey team fell to Liberty Friday during a NorPac showdown, 8-1.

The Flames quickly took the 2-0 lead just 10 minutes into the match due to goals by Flames’ players Abbey Bosom and Natalie Barr.

The single score of the game when senior Casey Lammando made a pass to ASU freshman Amber Boot.

Barr was able to score another point with just under three minutes left in the first half, which allowed the Flames to take a 3-1 lead into halftime.

Fifteen minutes into the first half Liberty was able to make two more goals, extending its lead to four. Barr scored the fourth goal of the night in the 61st minute as Liberty took a 6-1 lead over the Mountaineers.

Liberty pinned two more goals with less than 10 minutes left to take the 8-1 victory over the Black and Gold.

Senior goalkeeper Sarah Anderson suffered the loss in the net after playing over 61 minutes with six saves, while Cristina Ceppi saw eight minutes of play time in the cage.

Boot led the way for App with one goal, while Emily Knapp and Caroline Phillips both were able to put a shot on net.

With the loss the Mountaineers fall 3-12 on the overall season and 0-5 in the NorPac.

Appalachian State will play again on today when they travel to Radford for their last NorPac road game of the season. The match starts at 1 p.m.
