NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - The Wesley College field hockey team was looking to knock off its second straight nationally ranked foe, but No. 13 Christopher Newport defended its home field for a 2-0 final in favor of the Captains.
Fresh off a win over No. 12 Mary Washington just 48 hours earlier, the Wolverines (5-2) fell behind 1-0 on a penalty stroke by Lauren Cherry just under 11 minutes into the action.
Caitlin Cahill added an insurance goal for Christopher Newport (3-2) in the second half, taking a feed from Chrissy Kurecki on a penalty corner less than five minutes after play resumed.
The game was otherwise a defensive struggle as the squads combined for just 10 shots, including just two for the Wolverines.
Jaime Dowling turned away both Wolverine shots to pick up the shutout.
Wesley is back in action against Juniata on September 20 in a neutral site game to be played at Lower Dauphin High School in Hummelstown, Pennsylvania.
