LOCK HAVEN, Pa.—With conference play beginning in less than two weeks, the Rider University field hockey team continues to work on its development with the hope of advancing to a fourth straight NCAA Play-In game.

And what better way to accomplish that goal than to go out and play a former conference rival which always seems at the top of its game.

Three days after taking 18th ranked Drexel University to the limit before falling 2-1, the Broncs gave it their best shot against perennial power Lock Haven (7-2) before losing 1-0 on Saturday afternoon at Charlotte E. Smith Field.

“Lock Haven dominated the first half and we made some adjustments at intermission to give ourselves a chance to win and we just didn’t convert those opportunities,” said head coach Lori Hussong.  “Against quality opponents like we have faced, especially in the last two games, you have to cash in any opportunities that you get because they are so rare.”

Lock Haven broke a scoreless tie with just under 13 minutes left in the game, converting a rebound in front of the cage.

Sophomore goalie Joelle Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mark’s) made three saves for Rider.

Bronc freshmen Kalyn O'Brien (Southampton/Seneca) and Nicole Hareau (Montevideo, Uruguay) each led Rider (6-3) with three shots.

Rider out-shot the Lady Eagles 12-9.  Lock Haven held a 9-8 penalty corner advantage.

Rider entered the game first in the nation in penalty corners per game.

Last season, the Lady Eagles gave Rider its only home loss ever at Ben Cohen Field, the lighted on-campus turf facility that opened in the fall of 2010 with Rider losing 5-2.

The teams have met 12 times with Rider winning three.  Rider posted a 3-2 win at Lock Haven on September 25, 2011 and in a November 1, 2009 contest, Rider won the Northeast Conference regular season title with a 1-0 double overtime victory over the Lady Eagles.

Rider was last shutout on August 26, 2012, in the season opener at Drexel.

“When we scheduled Drexel and Lock Haven, we knew that these were ‘50/50’ games for us,” Hussong added.  “We wanted to show that we can compete with them and we did but the bottom line is you have to capitalize on the chances when you get them and put the ball in the cage.”

Rider travels to Saint Joseph’s on October 4 for a non-conference game at 3:30 p.m.

“We are going to work on having a good week of practice to get ready for both Saint Joseph’s (Friday) and Lehigh on October 6,” Hussong said.  “We expect two tough games.”
