No. 9 Field Hockey Downs Conn. College In OT, 3-2


NEW LONDON, Conn., September 15, 2005 - Springfield College senior midfielder Alisha Miner (Sanbornton, N.H.) scored the game-winning goal with just 1:23 left in the first overtime to give the Pride a 3-2 non-conference victory at Connecticut College on Thursday (Sept. 15).

The goal was Miner's third of the season as SC, ranked ninth in the season-opening National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA), improved to 4-1 on the season and 2-0 in overtime contests. In regulation, the Pride received goals from senior forward Sarah Brooker (Auburn, Maine), her fourth of the year, and sophomore forward Eileen Jenkins (Gorham, Maine), her first of 2005.

Sophomore keeper Emma Kaplan (Riddgefield, Conn.) made 12 stops in goal for the Pride.

SC will return home this weekend as it faces Plymouth State University on Sunday afternoon, September 18, in a 12:00 p.m. start. The Pride opens its New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) season next weekend (Sept. 24) at Wheaton College.
