Millersville’s women’s field hockey team traveled to Seton Hill in hopes to avenge their first loss of the season last Tuesday versus Shippensburg. The team was able to channel enough inner anger to shut out Seton Hill 4-0, receiving production from four players in the process.
This was the Marauders’ 7th shut-out of the season, and the 24th of senior Goalkeeper Lauren Stotzin’s career. Junior Lauren Gerhart helped the Marauders complete the feat by providing a goal and two assists for the day.

Gerhart’s lone goal was the first tally of the match, and it was assisted by Sophomore Margaret Thorwart. She also helped set up the Marauders’ next goal, finding Katelyn Zapp, who weaved her way towards her team-leading ninth goal of the season—the 27th of her career. The goal also moved Zapp into a tie for fifth on the Marauders all-time scoring list.
In the 66th minute, Gerhart was able to contribute for one more goal by setting up Arianna Grays for her fourth goal of the season. Hannah Whitman was able to cap the team’s tremendous day by finishing the scoring with her own unassisted goal.
With this win, Millersville moves to 10-1 (8-1 PSAC), and hopes to re-solidify themselves as the top team in division II field hockey. Millersville also improves to 9-0 all-time versus Seton Hill.
FieldHockeyScoreFront_editThe next match for the Marauders comes Oct. 19 against visiting Bellarmine. The Marauders hope to restart the winning streak that Shippensberg ended Tuesday.
The game is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.
