BATES FIELD HOCKEY PICKS UP NESCAC WIN, 3-0, OVER TRINITY
LEWISTON, Maine -- Junior goalkeeper Peggy Ficks (Washington, Conn.) made recorded her eighth career shutout as the Bates College Field Hockey team picked up their first win of the season, 3-0, over Trinity College, an NCAA Division III tournament semifinalist from a year ago.
The tone for the Bates victory was set by Ficks, who, after picking up the ball during a scramble in front of the net, went on to save the ensuing penalty stroke. It was one of seven saves for her on the day.
The Bobcats broke through offensively off a penalty corner late in the first half, when sophomore Ginny Hurley (Revere, Mass.) converted a feed from classmate Sarah Weatherbee (Walpole, Mass.). Bates opened the lead even further just 32 seconds later, when first-year player Julia Price (Mansfield, Mass.) weaved through three Bantam defenders and shot the ball past Trinity keeper Jess Martin, tallying her first career goal.
The Bobcats added another insurance goal in the second half when first-year player Joey Farrar (West Paris, Maine) took a crossing pass from senior Kate Orelanna (Middlebury, Vt.) and one-timed it home. The Bobcats victory was just their second in 11 all-time meetings against Trinity. They will try to extend their winning streak tomorrow against Keene State College.
