WORCESTER, Mass. - The Holy Cross field hockey team fell to the University of New Hampshire, 2-1, Sunday afternoon.

The contest was extremely even, with UNH holding the advantage in shots and penalty corners by one, 12-11 and 6-5 respectively.

The Wildcats took the lead in the first quarter off a penalty corner and then doubled their advantage in the second in a similar situation. The Crusaders got on the board in the third when Madeline Alderfer  sent a centering pass towards the goal where Olivia Venezia redirected it in.
