DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College field hockey team was downed by Rowan University on Wednesday night at Drass Field, falling to a 5-0 defeat.
Kayla Fromal was outstanding in net for the Wolverines, making a career-high 19 saves in net. The Wesley netminder was all over the crease, making spectacular diving and sliding saves to prevent the Profs from extending their lead. Morgan Seymour tallied a pair of defensive saves and Kasey Fry recorded her first career defensive save as well. Rowan goalkeeper Suzy Mansour was challenged just three times, turning away all three Wesley shots on goal for the shutout.
In the first half, the Wolverines were able to generate a handful of opportunities, creating five shots but just three on net. Meghan Groom steered a shot on goal and Morgan Gannon tested the keeper twice, but all three efforts were turned away.
Sam Browne and N'Dea Irvin-Choy netted goals for the Profs as they took a 2-0 lead in the first frame. Browne's goal came on a point-blank deflection off a shot from the top of the crease. The Profs' second goal came on a scramble play where Fromal made a diving save, but was out of position for the rebound which was slotted in.
In the second half, Rowan controlled the play for much of the period, keeping Wesley from generating a shot on goal. The Profs were able to add to their tally, scoring three times in the second half to earn the 5-0 win.
Fromal's 19-save effort was the most saves made in a single game by a Wesley goalkeeper since October 10, 2012. Elizabeth Groom put up 20 saves in a 4-1 loss to Mary Washington.
Wesley will return to action on Saturday when they open their Capital Athletic Conference schedule with a matinee contest against Christopher Newport at 11:00 a.m.
