Saints Fall to UMBC in Field Hockey Action
Sept. 22, 2002
Sophomore Cecile Banas (Gaithersburg, MD/Wooton) scored her first goal of the season with under five minutes remaining in the game to lead UMBC (3-4, 2-2 NEC) to a 2-1 victory over Siena (2-3, 2-2 NEC) Sunday afternoon at UMBC Stadium.
The Retrievers took an early 1-0 advantage when sophomore Rebecca Schaller (Leonardtown, MD/Leonardtown) blasted a shot past Saint goalkeeper Kristen Heyde (Somers, NY/Somers) only 1:06 into the game. Junior Lacee Iselo (Rome, NY/Holland Patent) was able to tie the game in the second half after a centering pass from junior Erin Mead (Chestertown, NY/North Warren) allowed her to score in the 47th minute.
Banas's goal came unassisted shortly after one of five second-half Retriever penalty corners, and sealed the win for UMBC.
For the game, UMBC outshot Siena, 12-5, and recorded more penalty corners, 9-3.
