Another upsetting week for Millersville Field Hockey

The Millersville University Marauders had another upsetting week after being shutout by the Bloomsburg Huskies on Saturday. MU traveled to Bloomsburg on a rainy Saturday and came ready to play a team which held the Division II NCAA title for the past three years.

Throughout the first half, the Marauder defense held strong. BU had five shots on goal compared to MU’s three. Goalie Sara Dickinson was the answer to four of those five shots, as she made sure nothing came past the goal line. The game went into halftime scoreless, and it was still anyone’s game.

Coming into the second half, both teams knew they would have to fight harder. Becoming more aggressive, the Huskies winded up a shot into the cage 10 minutes into the second half. This was not the end for Bloomsburg as they found an open hole on two occasions, connecting two more shots into the goal for their 3-0 shutout victory over Millersville.

The Marauders were awarded seven penalty corners throughout the game but weren’t able to get a successful shot on goal. Millersville University will not be defeated. Since they have faced the best teams of their 2009 schedule, they will know what to prepare for as they continue.

This will be a big weekend for the Marauders as they face Seton Hill Saturday at home and Mansfield on Sunday away. This will be the second time MU will face both of these teams this season.

Earlier this season MU dominated Seton Hill away 5-1 and Mansfield home 2-1, and has another chance at victory this weekend.

Come out to watch the Marauders as they roll over Seton Hill on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Chryst Field.
