LAWRENCEVILLE—The Rider University field hockey team rallied from a two goal deficit to force overtime but it wasn’t enough as the Penn Quakers defeated the Broncs 4-3 on Wednesday at Ben Cohen Field.

Emily Corcoran took a pass from Jasmine Cole and after the Rider goalie deflected the ball, Corcoran was able to tip it into the cage for the final score 9:10 into the extra session, recording her ninth goal of the season.

“You had two evenly matched teams,” said head coach Lori Hussong who saw the Broncs fall in overtime for the first time in three games this season.  “Penn just played like they wanted it a little more than we did.”

Rider (8-4) senior Sandra Penas (Barcelona, Spain) opened the scoring just 3:20 into the game, pulling the goalie out with a fake in front and hit the back of the cage for the eighth time this season and 62nd time in her career.

Penn (8-2) tied the game just 2:05 later when Cole scored her first of two goals in the game, converting a rebound, with Corcoran assisting.

Corcoran scored her first of the night, 13 minutes before intermission, dribbling in and shooting after receiving a pass from Julie Tahan to give the Quakers a 2-1 lead.

Penn led by one goal at the half.

“We made adjustments at the half,” said Hussong.  “We let our players know that they were getting beat to every ‘50/50’ ball and we improved that in the second half.  Penn was very aggressive, they are a fast team.  We made the adjustments and gave ourselves a chance to win the game and it just didn’t happen tonight.”

The Quakers increased their lead to 3-1, when Cole hit in a loose ball after a penalty corner, with Elise Tilton picking up the assist with 28 minutes left in regulation.

Rider mounted a comeback with freshman Nicole Hareau (Montevideo, Uruguay) scoring back to back goals, the first on a penalty corner with Penas assisting in the 47th minute and the second on a penalty stroke with 16:44 left in the second half to tie the game 3-3.

Hareau, the reigning Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week, leads the conference with 12 goals this season.

Hareau scored two goals for the third game in a row and she has five, two-goal games this season.

Penn had a great opportunity with 15 minutes remaining and hit the post on a shot by Julie Tahan and Rider had a great chance of its own with Hareau hitting the post on a penalty stroke with 13:44 left in regulation.

Rider out-shot Penn 28-21 and the Broncs held an 11-10 penalty corner advantage.

Sophomore goalie Joelle Prettyman (Newark, Del./St. Mark’s) made 10 saves with Quaker goalie Carly Sokach turning back 12 Rider shots.

This is the first time Penn has defeated Rider in four tries.  Rider defeated Penn 3-0 in Philadelphia last season.  The Broncs defeated the Quakers 7-1 at Rider in 2011 and 8-3 in Philadelphia in 2010.

Today’s game was Rider’s annual ‘Play 4 The Cure’ game as the Broncs raised donations and awareness in the on-going battle against breast cancer.

“Every year, we set aside one special day to honor our team mentor Cathy Carter-Romero, Rider’s Director of Publications who continues to battle this disease,” said Hussong.  “She continues to be an inspiration to our team and we do what we can to raise donations in the fight against the disease.”

Several hundred dollars were raised in the effort with over 200 fans attending the game.

This is only Rider’s second loss in 29 games at Ben Cohen Field, the lighted on-campus turf field which opened in the Fall of 2010.

Rider hosts Robert Morris in the MAAC opener on Sunday at noon.

“Every team is going to play their best against us,” Hussong added.  “We know we have a huge mountain to climb and things to learn from this game so we are ready to go on Sunday.”
