WINCHESTER, Va. – The Wesley College field hockey team battled in a back-and-forth game against the Shenandoah Hornets, but a late goal by Shenandoah would lift the Hornets over the Wolverines, 3-2.
Wesley opened the scoring in the 17th minute when Katelynn Fuhr would find Kaila Hindt on a pass from the wing and Hindt would one-time it past the keeper for her team-best eighth goal of the season. Shenandoah would tie it up four minutes later on a Taylor Hayes and eventually take the lead a minute into the second half on an unassisted goal from Megan Stevens.
Wesley would convert a penalty corner play in the 44th minute when Hindt found Kasey Fry at the top of the arc and ripped a shot past the Shenandoah defense to tie the game at two.
The game would remain tied until the Shenandoah would retake the lead in the 61st minute when Stevens scored her second goal of the game, the eventual game winner on a pass from Hayes.
Wesley (4-4) will begin a four-game homestand on Tuesday when they host the Virginia Wesleyan Marlins at Drass Field.
