DALLAS, Pa. - The Wesley College field hockey team managed just three shots against a staunch King's College defense and fell to a 3-0 loss against the Monarchs on the second day of the Misericordia Invitational.
Kelsey Fromal made nine saves in net and Morgan Seymour added a defensive save, but it wasn't enough to keep King's off the scoreboard. King's goalkeeper Paige Tedik earned the shutout win with a pair of saves.
King's struck early with a goal in the 10th minute of play. Brianna DiMaggio buried a pass from Kelsey Gabriele to make it 1-0. The Wolverines manufactured a handful of quality chances with Meghan Groom and Kasey Fry each ripping a shot on goal, but Tedik turned them away. The Wolverines earned three penalty corners in the first half but couldn't score and went into the halftime break trailing by a goal.
In the second half, the Monarchs added some insurance to their lead. Madysen Jones scored in the 47th minute to make it 2-0 and Alyssa Monaghan provided the dagger with a goal in the final minute of play to make it 3-0. Wesley was unable to generate a shot in the second half despite earning three more penalty corners.
The Wolverines move to 1-2 on the season and will return to the friendly confines of Drass Field on Wednesday, Sept. 9 when they host Rowan University in a non-conference tilt.
