Wesley Held off by Salisbury

DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College field hockey team fell 9-0 on Capital Athletic Conference opponent Salisbury University on Wednesday night at Drass Field. 

The Wolverines combined to make 31 saves, including 22 from starting goalkeeper Kayla Fromal, but it wasn't enough to stop the potent Salisbury offense. Fromal took the loss in goal despite her second 20-save performance of the season. Sydney Stump made five saves in 14:48 of relief between the pipes. The Wolverine defense combined for four defensive saves as well, led by Morgan Seymour with two. 

Wesley played tight with the fifth-ranked Seagulls for the first half, allowing just two goals despite being outshot 16-0. Fromal kept nearly everything out of the net, but the home team went into the halftime break trailing 2-0.

In the second half, Salisbury continued their relentless pressure, peppering the Wesley goal with 30 more shots. Fromal was removed from the game with 14:48 remaining after a fantastic effort, making 22 saves. Stump replaced her and made five saves herself. The Wolverines only shot on goal came in the second half when Haylee Scruggs muscled an effort into the pads of the Salisbury keeper who kicked it away.

Morgan Seymour's two defensive saves give her 12 for the season, including six in the past two contests. The senior defender is among the nation's best in the category.

Wesley falls to 3-11 on the season and will return to action on Sunday, October 18 when they travel to Western Maryland to take on Frostburg State in another CAC match.
