Five Devils Score in Senior Day Win Over Shorewomen

CARLISLE, Pa. - The Dickinson field hockey team got goals from five different players as they earned a comfortable 5-1 Centennial Conference win in their regular-season finale on Saturday afternoon against Washington College at Biddle Field Hockey Field. Prior to the start of the game the Red Devils honored their seven seniors: Sierra Bobb, Sydney Engler, Bridget Fontaine, Amanda Fruman, Tara Hausker, Hannah Spiri, and Ellie Werner.

Dickinson had two chances early in the contest, but both Morgan Yandow-Harding and Abby Marthins had their shots blocked by the defense. The Devils would take the lead on the final shot of the quarter at the 8:21 mark as Fontaine beat Ava Rivera with an unassisted tally. 

It would take over six minutes into the second period before either side would muster up another shot as Fruman got inside the attack area and was denied by Rivera. The home side made it 2-0 just over four minutes later when Katie Marthins slid a pass in front of the goal that was tapped home by Grace Donovan. The final two minutes of the half belonged to Washington as they recorded three shots with attempts from Madison Parker and Zoe Shevitz being stopped by Saige Stevens. Then they finally found their way onto the board at the 28:39 mark when Parker setup Kat Esposito for the goal cutting it to 2-1 at half. 

The Devils extended their advantage to 3-1 with 5:09 gone in the quarter when Hailey Womer sent a pass beyond the reach of a diving Rivera that found the stick of Abby Marthins who tapped it into an empty cage. Esposito went after her second of the game with 4:18 to go, but she was shutdown by Stevens. A green card to Jillian Brejnik late in the frame had the Devils playing up a player which allowed Philine Smits and Fontaine to each get a shot off before the end of the third, however none would force a save from Rivera.

Dickinson dominated the fourth quarter recording the first six shots with offerings by Hailey Womer, Hausker, Marthins, and Yandow-Harding all being turned aside by Rivera. DC finally got another goal with 52:58 gone when Werner inserted a penalty corner to Spiri who carried the ball in a few feet before she blasted a shot beyond the reach of Rivera to make it 4-1. Emma Snyder would cap off the scoring on the afternoon with 2:20 remaining when Hausker found her right at the goaline for the finish and the 5-1 final.
