The Shippensburg Raider’s field hockey team faced West Chester University this past Tuesday and won 2-1 in dominating fashion.
West Chester came out firing scoring a two-minute goal by Rachal Toppi. The Raiders would return the favor seven minutes later as senior forward, Cassie Rawa, would deflect the ball into the net after a shot by Kylie Huffman. Shippensburg would grab the lead right before half with a 33-minute goal by forward Brooke Zeiders. Zeiders has now scored a goal in the past three straight games, giving her 4 goals on the season.
The Raiders would continue to roll into the second half after another goal by Cassie Rawa 8 minutes into the second half, giving her 3 goals on the season.
With the help of redshirt-sophomore goalie, Ally Mooney, and a strong Raider’s defense, Shippensburg would finish the game victorious. Mooney recorded one save in the game, and her 11th victory this season.
With the victory over the Rams, the Raiders extended their record to 11-1 on the season. Shippensburg will host Slippery Rock this Saturday at Robb Sports Complex at 11 A.M.
