App State Field Hockey Gets Second Straight Shutout

App State field hockey earned its fourth consecutive win and second straight shutout with a 2-0 victory over Saint Louis on Sunday afternoon.

The Mountaineers (8-5, 3-2 MAC) tallied an outstanding season-high of 29 shots, 20 of which were on goal.

Rachel Fleig struck first midway through the opening period on a goal that was assisted by Lise Boekaar. Fleig has four goals this season, and two game-winners. The assist was the third of Boekaar’s season.

Friederike Stegen gave App State a comfortable lead over the Billikens (2-13, 0-5 A-10) in the third period with a goal that was assisted by Charlotte Bosma. In her career, Stegen now has 25 goals and 25 assists. 11 of those goals have been scored this season, the second most in the Mid-American Conference.

The incredible shot total came from Anna Smarrelli (7, 4 SOG), Stegen (6, 4 SOG), Fleig (5, 5 SOG), Sarah Farrell (5, 4 SOG), Bosma (2, 1 SOG), Carli Ciocco (2, 1 SOG), Bridget Donovan (1, 1 SOG) and Pauline Mangold (1).

This was the fourth shutout of the season for Addie Clark and the defense, who lead the conference in that category. Clark also leads the MAC in save percentage (.785).

App State has one more game tomorrow at Lindenwood at 2 p.m. ET before returning to Boone for two home games next weekend.
