TOWSON, Md. - The Providence College field hockey team defeated Towson, 6-2, on Sunday, September 16 in Towson, Md. Sophomore Henni Tietze (Sankt Augustin, Germany) led the Friar offense with a single-game career high of two goals. Senior goalkeeper Kathi Weidman (Millersville, Pa.) notched her fourth victory of the season with seven saves.
The Friars took a 2-0 lead early in the first half with a pair of goals by sophomores Steph Guglielmo (Castle Rock, Colo.) and Henni Tietze (Sankt Augustin, Germany). Guglielmo's goal was assisted by graduate student Jen Abrams (Reading, Mass.) off a corner just 9:49 into the game. Tietze also scored off a corner at 13:44 off a feed from freshman Emma Mackie (Delta, British Columbia), who inserted the pass to start the play.
Towson cut the Friars' lead to one goal (2-1) at 27:40 as Heather Jenney found the back of the cage, assisted by Courtney Branco. However, junior Caitlin Malone (Ossining, N.Y.) scored for Providence just three and a half minutes later to regain the Friars' two-goal lead (3-1). Malone carried the ball into the circle and blasted a shot from the top.
In the second half Tietze started the scoring as she converted a penalty stroke at 44:50. The stroke was called after the Friars drove down field on a fast break and featured a three-on-one with the Towson goalkeeper. Junior Hillary Anderson (Barrington, R.I.) made it a 5-1 game for Providence as she connected on her second goal of the season during a penalty corner just a minute and 30 seconds later. Anderson found the back of the cage as she tipped in an initial shot taken by Guglielmo. Guglielmo was credited with an assist on the play.
The Friars posted a 6-1 advantage at the 60:52 mark as freshman Emma Mackie (Delta, British Columbia) tipped in her second goal of the season off a feed from Malone. The Tigers did not give up though, as they managed to net a second goal with just 5:33 remaining in regulation. Jenney tallied the goal, and it was assisted by Branco.
The Friars out-shot the Tigers, 14-11. Thirteen of the Friars' 14 shot attempts were goal. Providence also held a 10-9 advantage in penalty corners. Eight of the Tigers' nine corners were recorded in the second half of play.
Providence is currently in the midst of a five-game win streak, since opening the season with back-to-back overtime losses against nationally-ranked opponents. The team's victory over Towson marks the 100th career victory for Head Coach Diane Madl.
The Friars return to action on Sunday, September 23 against Boston College. The game will be played at Lennon Family Field in Providence, R.I. and is scheduled to begin at 3:00 p.m. Live streaming video of the game will be offered via Providence's athletic web site at www.Friars.com.
