WORCESTER, Mass. —The Worcester State University field hockey team rallied in the second half to earn a 2-1 non-conference victory over the AMCATS Thursday evening under the lights at Coughlin Stadium.
Worcester State's Michaila Parent (Westborough, Mass.) tallied her second goal of the game and third game-winning goal of the season to lead the Lancers to victory. The game remained scoreless until the AMCAT's capitalized on a penalty corner awarded with less than five minutes to go in the first half. The Lancers broke out in the second half burying two goals to ultimately claim the 2-1 victory. Worcester State outshot Anna Maria 20-8 during the game and were awarded 12 penalty corners to the AMCAT's five.
The first half of the game was uneventful, with back and forth play between the Lancers and AMCATS. Anna Maria's Kaitlyn Moran (Leicester, Mass.) scored the first goal of the game with less than five minutes remaining in the half when she received a pass from teammate Nicole Denver (Springfield, Mass.).
AMCAT goalkeeper Bryanna Tobin (Deep River, Conn.) had a busy night finishing with 10 saves, but suffered the loss and her record falls to an even 3-3.
Anna Maria will host Simmons on Saturday, September 24 at 10:00 a.m. Worcester State will resume play in Little East Conference action at Eastern Connecticut on Saturday, September 24 at 12:00 p.m.
