How it happened

The Wesley Women's Field Hockey team closed out regular season play with a senior night sweep over the Neumann Knights.

The Wolverines pressured the Knights early in the first quarter when Wesley's senior Kaila Hindt took the ball up the left side of the field past a Neumann defender to score unassisted a minute into the game.

Scoring continued in the second quarter for the Wolverines as Carly Setting sent a flux pass from the base line across cage for Margaret Johnson to tip the ball in. Five minutes later another goal was scored after a corner insert from Hindt, Kristen Fuhr took a shot from the top that made it's way to Hanna Giaccone for the tip in, 3-0.

The third quarter both teams battled for possession. The Wolverines pulled off seven shots and one penalty corner, but the score remained 3-0.

The Wolverines took three more shots and four more corners before scoring again in the fourth quarter. This time the dynamic duo reversed rolls as Margaret Johnson received the ball on the right base line and passed it to Carly Setting on a stroke for a Wolverine win 4-0.

Wesley's defense played lights out holding the Neumann Knights scoreless through regulation play.
