RADFORD RALLY EDGES FIELD HOCKEY, 2-1
After a scoreless first half, UMBC freshman Julie Moore (Rising Sun, MD) gave the Retrievers a 1-0 lead into the second frame. She picked up a loose ball and beat RU netminder Tina Caiazza from 12 yards out. But Radford would tie the game at 1-1 at the mark of the half, as Petran centered the ball from the right side, and freshman forward Meredith Evans beat Retriever netminder Meghan Polek from close range.
Petran converted the game-winner after UMBC knocked down a penalty corner attempt from the top of the circle. She pounced on a loose ball and beat Polek to the near right post.
UMBC outshot Radford, 9-8, while the Highlanders enjoyed a 6-4 edge in penalty corners. Caiazza made two saves for RU, while Polek had one for UMBC.
