The Lock Haven University field hockey team picked up its seventh win of the year with a home victory over the Georgetown Hoyas this past Saturday in a non-conference game.

The team got out to a hot start as Rachel Valentine scored her sixth and seventh goal of the season just eight minutes into the first half.

The first goal was scored on a crossing-pass from teammate Tamia Roach. The pair of teammates would hook up again for Valentine’s second goal just 48 seconds later.

The Hoyas would not go without a fight though, as a goal from Megan Parsons snuck into the far post with just under 20 minutes remaining in the half.

Although once the second half started, it was all LHU from there. Not even six minutes into the second half, Noelle Kephart scored her first goal of the season to give LHU a 3-1 lead.

Lydia George would put the icing on the cake with her second goal of the season to give LHU a 4-1 lead. The win put LHU’s record at 7-1 for the season.

However, on Wednesday, the team fell at St. Joseph’s 3-2 in overtime. Their record now stands at 7-2 heading into their next game at La Salle on Friday, Sept. 25.
