Wolverines Honor Senior Class with Win over Ferrum

DOVER, Del. - On a day dedicated to three graduating seniors, the Wesley College field hockey team played an inspired game, earning a 4-1 victory over non-conference foe Ferrum College on Sunday afternoon.

The squad took the time to honor graduating seniors Meghan Groom, Renee Schneider and Kayla Fromal in pre-game ceremonies, and each was given the opportunity to start the game as well. 

Fromal finished with five saves to earn the victory in net for the Wolverines. Groom finished with a shot on goal and Schneider chipped in with a goal and an assist on the day.

The Wolverines found themselves trailing by a goal in the early going. Kelly Savage netted a score for the Panthers off an assist from Kasey Sheets that put the team ahead 1-0 in the 25th minute. 

Later in the first half, the squad came back to tie the game with a goal just 1:25 later. Off a penalty corner, Morgan Seymour inserted to Kasey Fry at the top of the circle. The freshman teed up a drive and blasted a shot past the Ferrum keeper and in to make it 1-1.

In the second half, it was all Wesley as the Wolverines controlled the pace of play and time of possession. The Navy and White outshot their opponents 20-1 in the second half and outscored them 3-0. Allison Perugini came away with a pair of goals, including the eventual game-winner, while Schneider added an important insurance goal in the final minutes.

Wesley improves to 4-12 on the season and will finish their year with a contest against St. Mary's on Wednesday, October 28.
