The Wilson College field hockey team earned a 5-1 victory over the Falcons of Cedar Crest College yesterday afternoon.

The Phoenix took control of the game early, as senior Tara Fields (Berryville, Va./ Clark County) scored just three minutes into the game. Forward, Hillary Swartz (Carlisle, Pa./ Boiling Springs) would add two goals of her own during the first half. Freshman, Alexis Ankro (Tappen N.Y./ Tappan Zee) found the back of the cage for Phoenix just before halftime.

In the second half, Swartz was able to score again recording the Phoenix’s final goal of the game and completing her hat trick. The Falcon’s lone goal came in the second half when Erin Studer was able to score in the 58th minute of play.

Gina Weigold (Charlottesville,Va./ Monticello) and Brandy Holtzapple (Red Lion, Pa./ Red Lion) split time in the cage for the Phoenix, each recording one save a piece.

This win improves Wilson’s season record to 7-5. The Phoenix will take the field again on Thursday, October 11th when they host Frostburg University.
