Durham, N.H. - Second half efforts to catch up with New Hampshire came up empty as the Holy Cross field hockey team lost the Wildcats, 2-0, Sunday afternoon in non-conference action.
Scoring both goals on penalty corners, UNH took an early lead as Sarah Craigue drove the ball to the top of the circle. A scramble in front of the net, Craigue ended up back with the ball, grabbing a rebound from Megan Shea and putting it past Crusader goalkeeper junior Erin Singleton's (Amesbury, Mass.) left side for the unassisted goal.
A second penalty corner about 10 minutes later gave the Wildcats' a 2-0 lead over Holy Cross as Shauna Sellenger's stop at the top of the circle gave Brooke Bercari the scoring opportunity, sending it sailing past Singleton to end the first half.
UNH goalkeeper Margaux Shute earned her third shutout of the season and made four saves. For Holy Cross, Singleton had four stops and sophomore Kelly Casey (New Egypt, N.J.) made five saves.
The Wildcats improved to 3-1 while Holy Cross now stands at 2-5, losing their fourth of the last five games.
The Crusaders' next action is scheduled for Sunday, September 22 at 1 p.m. as the field hockey team travels to Albany.
