Western Foothills Athletic 3A Conference East Lincoln: 3 St. Stephens: 0 Fred T. Foard: 3…
Friederike Stegen scored her fifth goal of the season to cut the lead in half with three minutes left in regulation, but the App State field hockey team (3-3, 0-1 MAC) fell 2-1 to Kent State (3-4, 1-0 MAC) on Sunday.
Stegen is now tied for the most goals (5) in the Mid-American Conference as well as the most points (10).
With two of the top goalkeepers in the MAC facing off in their conference opener, both teams were expecting to see a low score. The first three quarters saw zero goals by either team.
After two goals from the Golden Flashes in the fourth quarter, Carli Ciocco stole the ball on Kent State’s side and passed it to Stegen who worked it inside and decreased the deficit to one.
App State goalkeeper Addie Clark had five saves on the day. Clark and the App State defense have now had 20 total quarters this season where they did not allow a goal.
The Mountaineers will return home after four straight road games this Friday as they host Central Michigan at 5 p.m. On Sunday, they will host Wake Forest at noon.
