Wolverines Fall Short against Shenandoah

DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College field hockey team was held in check on Sunday afternoon as they fell 4-0 to Shenandoah University in a non-conference battle at Drass Field.

Kayla Fromal continued her stellar play, recording 11 saves but took the loss between the pipes. Sydney Stump came in for the last 10:41 of the game, but did not face a shot on goal. Shenandoah's Jessica Brown made seven saves to earn a shutout for the Hornets.

Wesley played the Hornets tight in the first half, allowing only one goal despite being outshot 16-2 in the frame. In the seventh minute of play, Kayla Alderman buried the rebound off of a defensive save to put the visitors ahead 1-0.

The Hornets had several other opportunities in the half, and challenged the Wolverines on penalty corners. On one of their set plays, the Hornets generated a shot that was chipped up right before it reached Fromal. The ball sailed over the keeper's head, but Morgan Seymour swatted it away out of the air for one of her career-high four defensive saves on the day. At the half, Wesley trailed by a goal.

In the second half, the Wolverines came out in the first five minutes and dominated play. Wesley generated several chances but couldn't cash in. The home team struggled to sustain their offensive pressure as the Hornets countered with three second-half goals, with two of them off penalty corners.

Seymour's four defensive saves give her 10 on the season, placing her fourth in the nation in the statistical category. 

Wesley moves to 3-10 on the season and will face Capital Athletic Conference front runner Salisbury University on on Wednesday, October 14.
