UMBC FIELD HOCKEY FALLS TO BUCKNELL, 3-0
LEWISBURG, Pa. - The Bucknell Bison field hockey team improved to .500 on Tuesday night after shutting out UMBC (3-4), 3-0, at Graham Field. Junior Kelly O'Brien and sophomores Alex Kyzmir and Anne Lutz each scored a goal for Bucknell.
Kyzmir was the first to score for the Bison when she received a feed from teammate Meiko Boynton on the left side of the goal and sent it home for the score with 9:05 to go in the first half. Moments later, O'Brien took advantage of the UMBC penalty and scored on a penalty shot with 5:34 to go in the first frame.
The second half remained scoreless for over 25 minutes until the 61:26 mark when Kyzmir sent a shot at UMBC goalie Meghan Polek, who deflected the shot back at Lutz. Lutz then sent the rebound home for her first goal of the season to put Bucknell up 3-0.
The Bison played strong defensively allowing the Retrievers only five shots on the night. Bucknell also outdrew UMBC in penalty corners, racking up six to UMBC's three. Polek faced 14 shots and had seven saves for the Retrievers.
UMBC travels to Maine to open up America East Conference play on Friday at 2 p.m. before taking on Rhode Island, also at Maine, on Sunday at 1 p.m.
