RINDGE, N.H. (October 14, 2017) – There was no shortage of corner attempts in the second half on Saturday afternoon at Sodexo Field. At least at the north end of the field, there was not. Chasing a one-goal deficit since the fourth minute, No. 6 nationally ranked pace rang up 13 penalty corners in the second period. Senior goalkeeper Meaghan Williams (Salem, N.H.) and the defense of the Franklin Pierce University field hockey team stood tall on each of the 13 though. The Ravens surrendered just three on-target shots amid the barrage, and made an early goal from junior forward Ashley Silva (Laconia, N.H.) hold up for the 1-0, upset win in Northeast-10 Conference play.
RINDGE, N.H. (October 10, 2017) – Opening a week in which it hosts a pair of nationally ranked teams, the Franklin Pierce University field hockey team held its own in the first half on Tuesday afternoon against No. 9 Stonehill at Sodexo Field. A second-half onslaught by the Skyhawks would prove too much to contain however, as the visitors came away with a 2-0 win in Northeast-10 Conference play.
GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (October 7, 2017) – For just the second time in 13 tries in program history, the Franklin Pierce University field hockey team took the field with Adelphi and came away winners on Saturday afternoon, on the road at Motamed Field. Junior forward Ashley Silva (Laconia, N.H.) scored a first-half goal and later assisted on the second-half game-winner, which came off the stick of junior midfielder Raegan Moulton (Baldwinville, Mass.) in the 62nd minute. It all added up to a 2-1 win for the Ravens in Northeast-10 Conference play.
