DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College field hockey team earned a 3-0 win over Drew University on Wednesday night at Drass Field. The win was meaningful for the team because it marked a milestone for head coach Tracey Short: her 250th career win.
Kayla Fromal made 10 saves to earn the shutout victory. Wednesday marked her fifth double-digit save performance of the season, and her second shutout. Drew's goaltender Ryann Callaghan made 13 saves in the loss.
Wesley got on the board in the ninth minute of play when Renee Schneider knocked in her first goal of the season. Morgan Seymour inserted a corner to Schneider who gave it back to Seymour. The senior slid it to Kasey Fry who found Schneider in front of the net. Schneider chipped the ball over the keeper to open the scoring.
Fromal was called into action just four times in the first half, but was up to task on each attempt to hold the Rangers scoreless and maintain the Wolverines' 1-0 lead as the two teams entered the halftime break.
In the second half, Wesley added a pair of insurance goals. Rebecca Dvorak slapped home a rebound in the 60th minute to give the Wolverines a 2-0 lead. The freshman's score was the first of her career. In the final minute of play, Schneider found Kelsey Fromal for a score. The goal came with 34 seconds left and sealed the win for Wesley as they triumphed 3-0.
The win marked Tracey Short's 250th career coaching victory. Short is now 250-160 in her coaching career, with all 250 career coaching victories coming as the head coach of the Wesley field hockey team.
The Wolverines improve to 2-8 on the season with both victories coming at home. The squad will travel to Virginia Wesleyan for another non-conference affair on Sunday, Oct. 4.
