  • PHILADELPHIA, PA – Nicole Antonini score two unassisted goals, as the Hawks of Saint Joseph’s defeated the Rutgers University field hockey team 3-1 on Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia, PA.

    After playing scoreless hockey for much of the first half, Saint Joseph’s found the net after Katelyn O’Brien converted a pass from Hilary Moody to give the Hawks the 1-0 lead in the 28th minute. The O’Brien goal would be the only score of the first half, as the Scarlet Knights headed into the second half facing a one goal deficit.

    At the 41st minute, Antonini scored the first of her two goals and RU was suddenly down 2-0. However, in the 51st minute, after an apparent RU goal was disallowed, the Scarlet Knights were awarded a penalty stroke and freshman standout midfielder Amy Lewis (Hainesport, NJ) converted. The Scarlet Knights found themselves down just one goal and right in the thick of things.

    After Rutgers defenders were unable to clear the ball from in front of the net after a Hawk’s centering pass from Lauren Luft, Antonini snuck in and scored her second goal of the afternoon, giving the Hawks a 3-1 lead and icing the game.

    Rutgers edged the Hawks in shots, 10-8, and penalty corners, 11-6; however, it was Hawks goalie Rebecca Cunfer who got the better of RU net-minder sophomore Rosalyn Wentko (Dallas, PA). Cunfer stopped three RU shots, compared to two saves by Wentko.

    The loss drops the Scarlet Knights to an even 5-5 on the season, including 0-2 in the BIG EAST. The win improved the Hawks to 5-3 on the year.

    The Scarlet Knights return to action on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 8:00 p.m. when the Owls of Temple come to the RU Stadium Complex. The Scarlet Knights are currently 4-2 at home this season.
