Aug 30, 2013
DAVIS, Calif. – The Missouri State field hockey team fell behind UC Davis early and couldn’t recover, as the Bears (0-1) lost to the Aggies by a score of 4-0 in both teams’ season openers on Friday (Aug. 30).
The Aggies (1-0) scored what proved to be the game-winning goal when Danielle Koehne knocked a shot past MSU keeper Andrea Bain (Sr., Victoria, British Columbia) just 10:07 into the contest. About 11 minutes later, UC Davis doubled its lead thanks to a one-timer goal by Cloey LemMon, who was assisted by Jamie Garcia and Megan Reardon.
The Bears’ defense was able to keep the score at 2-0 until after halftime, when Koehne picked up her second goal of the night in the 45th minute. Hannah Drawbridge and Megan Reardon assisted Koehne on the goal, which was scored off a penalty corner.
The three-goal deficit became four about 90 seconds later when the Aggies’ Stephie Sabraw set up at the top of the arc and slapped a one-timer past Bain, who collected three saves on the night.
Missouri State’s Liz Young (So., San Diego, Calif.) led the Bears with three shots, one of which was on goal. Holly Scherer (So., Ontario, Canada) recorded two shots.
UC Davis out-shot the Bears 14-to-5, and recorded nine shots on goal compared to MSU’s one.
The Bears return to action on Monday with a Labor Day tilt vs. Pacific. The game will be played at Berkeley, Calif. and is slated for a 1 p.m. (Central) start time.
