RIDER OUTLASTS FIELD HOCKEY, 5-1
Lawrenceville, NJ-Sophomore Christina Ang scored three goals to lead host Rider to a 5-1 victory over UMBC in an NEC field hockey contest. RU improves to 7-5 overall, 5-4 in the NEC, while UMBC falls to 5-8, 4-5.
After Rider had scored 5:46 into the game, UMBC's Jennifer Rowe tied the score, converting a feed from Cecile Banas at 8:31. But the tie was short-lived as Rider scored just 1:17 later, and tacked on two more first half goals. Ang, who scored the go-ahead goal, also tallied the fourth and fifth goals for the Broncs.
UMBC was outshot, 29-4, and Retriever netminder Megan Polek made 13 saves in the cage.
