SU Field Hockey survives Double-OT thriller 

The Shippensburg University field hockey team rallied back from one goal down to claim victory on Saturday, defeating Belmont Abbey in a 1v1 penalty shootout in a 2-1 victory in a neutral-site match at Limestone’s Saints Field.   

How it Happened

Shippensburg (5-0) tied the game with less than 90 seconds left in the second quarter from a penalty corner shot by sophomore Tess Jedeloo (Amsterdam, The Netherlands/Hervormd Lyceum Zuid) that was assisted by senior Maura Mears (Salisbury, Md./Parkside).  

Sophomore goalkeeper Emma Albee (Basking Ridge, N.J./Ridge), in her second game this year, was the saviour for the Raiders in the penalty shootout. The Raiders scored first off sophomore Valu Paul (Buenos Aires, Argentina/Instituto La Salle Florida) and the Crusaders missed their first attempt. Fellow sophomores Emilia Conners (Havertown, Pa./Haverford) and Jedeloo also made their attempts, while the Crusaders made one and missed one. With a 3-1 lead, the Raiders had to make the attempt to take the victory, which sophomore Ashley Button (Brinklow, Md./Sherwood) did.  

Inside the box score

The Raiders had 19-10 shots-on-goal advantage over Belmont Abbey and had an 11-10 penalty corners advantage. Sophomore goalkeeper Lindsay Tripodo (Gibbsboro, N.J./Eastern Regional) had a season high of eight saves, while Belmont Abbey’s goalkeeper Chloe Parker had 14 saves.  

Saturday’s match was the first Shippensburg match decided by penalty shootout since Sept. 19, 2015 against Bloomsburg. This is the third time SU had a penalty shootout, with the first time on Sept. 9, 2004, against Bloomsburg.
