FIELD HOCKEY RALLIES FOR VICTORY

The Shenandoah University field hockey team completed its regular season on Oct. 29, with a 2-1 ODAC victory over Eastern Mennonite.

Shenandoah (11-6, 6-2 ODAC) ties a program record for victories in a season with the win over the Royals (4-14, 2-6).

Coach Ashley Smeltzer-Kraft‘s club had to rally for the win, however, as EMU scored the game’s initial goal in the 22nd minute.

Jenessa Derstine tallied that goal for the Royals, poking a rebound past Shenandoah keeper Jenna Rampale to give the visitors the early lead.

Shenandoah, outshot 5-2 in the opening stanza, turned up the heat following the break, taking four of the six shots in the final 35 minutes.

The last of those shots, by senior Ashley Cross with just 1:56 remaining, put the Hornets on top to stay.

Cross knocked in her team leading 12th goal of the year as freshman Elizabeth Pardo slid her feed right across the goalmouth to the waiting Cross, who only had to tap the shot over the line for the game-winner.

Pardo had brought the game back to level in the 56th minute when she redirected a Moriah Woods feed from the right corner.

Pardo, camped on the left post, only had to deflect the shot in to tie the game.

Rampale had three saves with Alana Meadows helping her out with two defensive stops.

The Hornets now move on to the ODAC Tournament beginning on Saturday, Nov. 1.

MEN’S SOCCER ENDS WITH VICTORY

The Shenandoah University men’s soccer team completed its season on Oct. 29, with a 2-0 ODAC victory over visiting Randolph-Macon.

The win pushes Shenandoah (5-12-1, 2-8-1 ODAC) past the Yellow Jackets (4-13, 2-9) for 10th place in the league standings.

The fifth win of the season also matches the combined win total of the past three seasons.

Nate Long scored what proved to be the game-winner as his header of a Jonathan Mitchell pass snuck just inside the left post in the 75th minute.

With 17 seconds left in the extremely physical contest, Shenandoah was awarded a direct kick just outside the 18-yard box.

Seamus Doherty took full advantage, ripping his waist-high shot past Macon keeper Michael Bly for the final goal of the game.

The Hornets played the final 11 minutes with a man advantage as R-MC was issued the first of its two red cards at the 79:02 mark.

Following the final whistle, an additional red was issued to the ‘Jackets.

Shenandoah outshot its visitors 12-5 while Macon took three of the game’s four corners.
