Susquehanna Rallies Past Field Hockey, 3-2

SELINSGROVE, Pa. (10/12/10) – Kean junior Olivia Triano scored the first two goals of the game, however Susquehanna University rallied past Kean University, 3-2, in overtime in non-conference action on Tuesday evening.

With four minutes left in overtime, Susquehanna's Rebecca Entwistle knocked in the game-winner off the assist from Julia Amendola for the Crusaders (8-6).

The Cougars (7-4) took an early 1-0 lead when Triano (pictured right) redirected the pass from senior Amie Hoch following the penalty corner less than two minutes into the game.

Nearly 10 minutes later, the pair connected again on a nearly identical goal to give the Cougars a 2-0 lead.   The Crusaders got on the board late in the first half when Ally Bradley scored from in front of the cage off the pass from Amendola to cut the lead in half.

The Crusaders tied the game up late in regulation, when Bradley and Amendola connected again to force overtime. 

The teams both took 11 shots, with Kean rookie goalkeeper Jessica Zebley and Crusader goalie Erin Ferguson each made four saves.

The Cougars return to action on Friday, October 15, when they host Richard Stockton College in New Jersey Athletic Conference action.
