Crusaders stymie Spartans, 6-0

SELINSGROVE, PA -- Sassafras Field proved to be sweet home again for the Susquehanna field hockey team Tuesday, as they released another barrage of scoring, this time on York College.

Sophomore Andrea Fiori (West Trenton, N.J./Lawrenceville School), who racked up a Landmark Conference-record five goals against Wells last week, added another three in the Crusaders' 6-0 win. She scored first, just seven minutes into the game, on a pass from Kristen Epting (Hamburg, Pa./Hamburg).

Senior Megan Sites (Loysville, Pa./West Perry) got the next Crusader goal just five minutes later, assisted by freshman Rebecca Entwistle (Farmingdale, N.J./Wall). Fiori would add another in the 17th minute, tipping in a Jenelle Anthony (Saylorsburg, Pa./Stroudsburg) pass.

The Anthony-to-Fiori combination would strike again in the 42nd minute for Susquehanna's fourth goal. Anthony would then score the Crusaders' next two goals, both on assists from Christine Ottley (West Chester, Pa./Unionville).

Junior goalie Lyndsay Meabon (Dillsburg, Pa./Northern) did not have to defend much to get her second shutout, as the Spartans only took three shots on goal.
