The Siena women's field hockey lost a tough match 2-0 at Saint Joseph's on Sunday afternoon in Merion Station, Pa. Senior Beth Meyers recorded nine saves to continue to build on her all-time saves record.
Saint Joseph's Jordan Martin set the pace for the offense recording an assist on both goals scored and led the team with seven shots with four on goal. Martin set up Eva Gekas in the first half from a set play off of a penalty corner. Martin would later find Sara Yerk in front of the box for the goal.
The Saints had trouble finding their rhythm offensively as they managed to record only two shots. Callie Weise and Megan Meyers earned the shots for the Saints.
Beth Meyers was strong in the box today as the Hawks outshot the Saints 18-2 and a 10-3 penalty corner advantage.
The Saints open up MAAC league play this Friday, October 11 at home against Bryant. The game starts at 3:00 p.m. at Siena Turf Field. The Saints will continue to collect donations at the gate for cancer research. Fans can donate online at www.firstgiving.com.
