#14 Lafayette College 3, Rider University 1

EASTON, Pa.--In the completion of a game suspended by lightning on September 7, the Rider University field hockey team lost at 14th ranked Lafayette College 3-1 on Tuesday evening.

For Rider (6-3), junior Sandra Penas (Barcelona, Spain) scored her team-leading sixth goal of the season using a reverse shot with just over five minutes left in the game for the final score.

"We were really happy with our play tonight," said head coach Lori Hussong.  "We competed much better than we did in the loss to Lock Haven on Saturday."

Penas is ninth on Rider's all-time scoring list with 98 points (40g, 18a), three points behind Courtney Bertos and Tricia Crotty.

Lafayette (7-1) took a 1-0 lead just 1:53 into the game and went ahead by two goals with 14 minutes left before intermission.

After a 30 minute lightning delay on September 7, the game was halted with just over six minutes remaining in the opening half.

The Leopards took a 3-0 lead with just over 20 minutes remaining in the contest.

Rider out-shot the Leopards 10-6 and the Broncs held a 12-5 penalty corner advantage.

"We were happy with the effort and intensity," Hussong said.  "If we could have executed our corners a little better, the game would have been closer."

Freshman Joelle Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mark's) started in goal for Rider and played the first 28:45 on September 7 before fellow rookie Alicia Carthan (Bordentown) played the final 41:15 in tonight's segment of the game.

Two of Rider's three losses this season have been to teams currently ranked in the 2012 Penn Monto / NFHCA Division I National Coaches Poll (Drexel, Lafayette).

"Holding the 14th ranked team 1-1 in the second half is a good effort," Hussong said.  "The effort was good and if we put that energy out each time on the field, we will have a very successful season."

Rider hosts Lehigh on Sunday at Ben Cohen Field, beginning at noon.

"We are taking things one game at a time," Hussong said.  "The goal is to give our best effort and keep improving each time we step on the field."
