FROSTBURG, Md. - The Wesley College field hockey team fell just short of a conference victory on Sunday afternoon, dropping a 3-2 contest to Capital Athletic Conference foe Frostburg State University.
Kayla Fromal finished with 13 saves in the contest while Isabella Lucia and Morgan Seymour each recorded a defensive save. Frostburg goalie Jackie Gover earned the win with a three-save effort in 60 minutes in net.
The Wolverines found themselves in an early 3-0 hole as the Bobcats netted tallies in the fourth, eighth, and 23rd minutes of play but the squad came storming back. Before the halftime whistle, Wesley had already cut into the lead. Taylor Timmons netted her first career score in the 26th minute to cut the FSU lead to 3-1.
In the second half, the Wolverines kept fighting to score but couldn't crack the Frostburg defense again until the 64th minute when Morgan Seymour netted her second goal of the season to cut the deficit to just one goal. In the final 6:55 the Wolverines kept battling, looking for the tying goal but were held without, falling 3-2 on the road.
Wesley moves to 3-11 on the season with an 0-4 mark in the CAC. The squad will return to action on Saturday, October 24 when they travel to York College to take on the Spartans. The Wolverines will play their next home game on Sunday, October 25 against Ferrum and recognize their seniors at that game.
