Field Hockey: Petrantonio nets 81st career goal

Senior Jazmin Petrantonio (Saenz Pena, Argentina/Colegio Nuestra Senora de la Misericordia) set the Shippensburg University record for career goals on Saturday as the No. 1-ranked Raiders opened Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) play with a 2-0 win over Mansfield on a sunny afternoon at Robb Sports Complex.

Shippensburg (5-0, 1-0 PSAC) finished with a 18-3 advantage in shots on goal and 15-2 advantage in corners. The Raiders took control with two first-quarter goals. After six minutes of play, Petrantonio scored the first goal – the 81st of her career – to move her past Kristina Taylor and put her atop the SU career record book.

Minutes after the first goal, freshman Mya Kemp (Delmar, Del./Delmar) found the stick of senior Jenna Sluymer (Nieuw-Vennep, The Netherlands/Haarlemmermeer Lyceum, Hoofddorp) for the second goal.

Freshman Lindsay Tripodo (Gibbsboro, N.J./Eastern Regional) earned her second shutout of the season; she was credited with three saves.

Mansfield (3-4, 0-1) kept close as its goalkeeper August Lewis recorded 16 saves.
