Field Hockey Falls to Longwood, 4-2
Freshman Kate Garnet scored her first career goal against Longwood.
Carra Bunner put Longwood on the board early as Julia Hernandez passed the ball to her inside the arc and she finished the play for the 1-0 lead at the 5:17 mark. Three minutes later, the Lancers were awarded a penalty corner which Kelsey Turner converted for a quick 2-0 advantage. Cristin Newbold was credited with the assist, one of two for her on the day.
Katy Lernihan made it 3-0 in favor of Longwood at the 10:07 mark, taking a feed from Newbold. But the Retrievers got on the board two minutes later when sophomore midfielder Amanda Yanulevich rebounded a penalty corner and sent the ball to freshman forward Kate Garnet, who put the ball in the cage for her first career goal.
Just three minutes later, at the 15:53 mark, Hernandez sent a pass from the left wing outside the arc and Newbold took it around UMBC goalie Kat Tag to give Longwood a 4-1 advantage.
The scoring slowed for about 12 minutes until the Retrievers were awarded another penalty corner at the 27:22 mark, which senior midfielder Julie Moore converted for her second goal of the season. Yanulevich and junior midfielder Amy Morrow were credited with assists.
The Lancers’ 4-2 halftime lead stood for the rest of the game, as neither team managed to score in the second period.
Tag and junior Ashley Benitez split time in the cage for the Retrievers. Tag allowed four goals and made three saves in the first half, while Benitez did not allow a Lancer tally while stopping two shots in the second. Avanell Schmitz went the distance in goal for Longwood and came up with three saves while allowing UMBC to score twice.
The Lancers out-shot the Retrievers, 12-8, including 9-6 in the first half. The teams combined for only five shots in the second period. UMBC held a 6-5 advantage on penalty corners.
The Retrievers return to action Sunday, Sept. 24, as they host Rider at 1 p.m. at UMBC Stadium.
