The Wittenberg Tigers’ Field Hockey Team hosted two home games at Edwards-Maurer Field on homecoming weekend. On Saturday, Wittenberg played the Wooster Fighting Scots and on Sunday, Wittenberg played the Oberlin Yeowoman.
Wittenberg shut out both teams, beating Wooster 3-0 and Oberlin 4-0. The offense and defense played extremely well. The offense was creating and taking shots at ease all over the field. The defense played well by keeping constant pressure on the team’s opponents by not allowing the Scots or the Yeowomen offense to take easy shots.
The Tigers scoring attack during the Wooster game started when Audrey Coler, ‘18, took a shot that got past Wooster’s goalie in the first half of the game, before scoring again in the second half. The last goal against Wooster was recorded by Riley Trexler, ‘18, who was assisted by Channa Visseren, ‘21.
On Sunday, Wittenberg continued its offensive and defensive success. The Tigers were up 3-0 in the first half. The first goal of the game was scored by Trexler, who was assisted by Blaine Donnelly, ‘19, at the two minute mark of the first half. The Tigers second goal was scored by Visseren. Late in the first half, Veronica Carrow, ‘21, scored the last goal of the first half and was assisted by Megan Niswonger, 21. The solo goal in the second half came from Coler.
The Wittenberg Field Hockey Team is on a four game winning streak, winning its three past home games. The Tigers take the field again at home against Denison on Sept. 23.
