Raiders field hockey: Number 1 ranked SU defeats Seton Hill

The Number 1 ranked Shippensburg University field hockey team scored goals in all four quarters on Tuesday afternoon as it defeated Seton Hill, 12-0, in a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) match at Dick’s Sporting Goods Field.

Shippensburg (13-0, 8-0 PSAC) dominated possession and posted a lopsided advantage in shots on goal (28-0) and penalty corners (19-1). Freshman Lindsay Tripodo (Gibbsboro, N.J./Eastern Regional) and senior Meg Thompson (Ellicott City, Md./Centennial) combined for the shutout in goal.

Senior Jazmin Petrantonio (Saenz Pena, Argentina/Colegio Nuestra Senora de la Misericordia) totaled five goals and an assist in just 20 minutes of action, while freshman Mya Kemp (Delmar, Del./Delmar) scored twice and senior Jenna Sluymer (Nieuw-Vennep, The Netherlands/Haarlemmermeer Lyceum, Hoofddorp) added a goal and two assists.

Eleven different players had at least one point in the victory.

How it happened

In the first quarter, Petrantonio took the lead scoring off a penalty corner from graduate Caitlyn Wink (Princess Anne, Md./Delmar) just 45 seconds into the match. She applied pressure against the Griffin defender to score her second goal midway through the opening quarter. Senior Adrienne McGarrigle (Lititz, Pa./Warwick) was credited with an assist. With five seconds left in the first quarter, Kemp scored off a rebound shot from freshman Paige Graber (Oley, Pa./Oley Valley).

The Raiders continued the offensive momentum into the start of the second quarter. A penalty-corner goal by Petrantonio resulted in her fifth hat trick of the season. A tip-in by Wink made it 5-0, and with less than two minutes before halftime, Sluymer scored unassisted. Sluymer had assists on the first two goals of the quarter.

Two minutes into the third quarter, freshman Merel Hoekstra (Wassenaar, The Netherlands/Rijnlands Lyceum Wassenaar) scored her first collegiate goal off an assist from Petrantonio on a penalty corner. Petrantonio struck twice more, with the second assisted by Hoekstra off a penalty corner.

With five minutes left in the third quarter, Kemp scored her second goal of the match off an assist from freshman Nya Gilchrist (Ocean City, N.J./Ocean City), and freshman Valu Paul (Buenos Aires, Argentina/Instituto La Salle Florida) scored with a diving backhand shot.

In the fourth quarter, freshman Tess Jedeloo (Amsterdam, The Netherlands/Hervormd Lyceum Zuid) scored off a penalty corner taken by senior Maddie Reuther (West Chester, Pa./B. Reed Henderson) to produce the final scoring margin.

Seton Hill (1-12, 0-6 PSAC) had two goalies combine to make 16 saves.

This is the fourth time in school history that the Raiders have scored a single-game record of 12 goals, and second time this season the Raiders have achieved the feat.

Number 1 ranked Shippensburg will travel to IUP at noon Sunday for another conference matchup.
