LAWRENCEVILLE--The Rider University field hockey team had its six-game winning streak snapped with a 5-2 non-conference loss to Lock Haven on Saturday afternoon at Ben Cohen Field.

"I'm disappointed in how we played today," said head coach Lori Hussong.  "At this point in the season, it is a concern that we didn't put forth our best effort.  Today was a setback for us."

This was Rider's first loss in 20 games at the new lighted on-campus turf field.

Trailing 1-0, Bronc senior Gabby Burgo (Collingswood) tipped in a pass at the far post from junior Sandra Penas (Barcelona, Spain) for her team-leading fifth goal of the season with just over 10 minutes left in the opening half.

The teams went into the locker room tied 1-1.

Three minutes and 45 seconds into the second half, the Bald Eagles took a 2-1 lead and Lock Haven (7-3) increased the lead to two goals with 20 minutes left in the game.

Freshman Allison Muschs (Linkebeek, Belgium) scored her third goal of the season, on a penalty stroke with 16:39 left in the game, but that was as close as Rider (6-2) would get as the Lady Eagles scored twice in the last 12 minutes to put the contest out of reach.

"Lock Haven was sending a big ball up the field all day and we didn't adjust defensively," Hussong said.  "We didn't give ourselves a chance to intercept the ball."

This was the first collegiate loss in five starts for freshman goalie Alicia Carthan (Bordentown) who made four saves.  Carthan entered the game second in the nation in goals against average and save percentage.

"Our defense didn't come through," Hussong added.  "Lock Haven is tenacious and pounced on our mistakes in the midfield and turned that into an offensive attack."

Rider out-shot Lock Haven 15-13 and the Broncs held a 16-6 penalty corner advantage.

The teams have met 11 times with Rider winning three, including two in a row prior to today's game, a 3-2 win at Lock Haven on September 25, 2011 and a November 1, 2009 contest when the Broncs won the NEC regular season title with a 1-0 double overtime win that was played in Princeton.

Rider travels to Lafayette Tuesday evening to complete a game from September 7 that was stopped with less than seven minutes remaining in the first half due to lightning.

"We need to go up there and play," said Hussong.  "We need to straighten some things out starting on Tuesday.  We're already down 2-0 but that doesn't mean we can't come out ready to play.  We need to regain the momentum and be playing our best as we head into conference play.  I know we are going to work hard to get that done."
