FIELD HOCKEY HOSTS APPALACHIAN STATE, CAMPER AND COMMUNITY DAY SUNDAY MORNING
Head Coach Kristy Hartman Mumma and the Retrievers welcome former campers and other community organizations to their game against Appalachian State Sunday morning.
The Retrievers will welcome former field hockey campers and other community groups to the stadium and will hold a post-game autograph session.
UMBC and the Mountaineers have traditionally played close games. The teams have faced off each of the last two years, with both games going into overtime. In 2004, ASU eked out a 3-2 win in the second extra period, while the Retrievers won the year before, 3-2, on penalty strokes. The Mountaineers (1-8) are coming off a 3-0 loss to Radford on Sept. 21. Erica Muschamp leads ASU with two goals and four points, while goalie Kate Ryno has recorded 88 saves against 28 goals allowed for a 3.25 GAA and a .759 save percentage in 602:54 of play. Opponents are out-shooting the Mountaineers 184-49.
The Retrievers earned their first win of the season Wednesday afternoon, defeating St. Francis (0-6), 6-5, in sudden-death penalty strokes. The teams combined for seven goals in the second period to force overtime with a 5-5 score, but neither team could capitalize on several chances in the two extra periods, forcing a five-stroke penalty shot contest.
Both teams scored once after five tries, forcing sudden death. Freshman attack Amanda Yanulevich (Woodbine, Md./Glenelg), who was the only Retriever to beat Red Flash goalie Kristen Onto in the first five strokes, got the ball past Onto again, and St. Francis couldn’t match, giving UMBC the victory.
The Retrievers tallied first in a very back-and-forth contest, as junior attack Rebekah Krolus (Westminster, Md./Westminster) scored the first goal of her career on an assist from junior midfielder Julie Moore (Rising Sun, Md./Rising Sun). But St. Francis tied it up just more than two minutes later, as Erin Davis scored the first of her school-record three goals on a breakaway.
The Red Flash took a 2-1 lead into halftime, but Krolus tied the game at 2-2 at less than four and a half minutes into the second frame, converting a pass from freshman defender Emily Smith (Rising Sun, Md./Rising Sun).
Also scoring for the Retrievers were senior attack Katie Cutchall (
Three Retrievers rank in the top 10 on UMBC’s all-time scoring list.
