NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Husson University field hockey (1-8) dropped their first match in the Falcons Field Hockey Tournament this weekend, 6-2, against Keystone College (6-4) on Saturday afternoon down in Connecticut. 


The Giants opened up the flood gates scoring four consecutive goals before Husson broke up the monotony with a goal by Sadie Royer in the last minute of the first half. Keystone's Alex Smith and Savanna Robinson took turns scoring until each had acquired a hat trick by the 65th minute of the game. To close out scoring, Royer knocked in her second of the afternoon with assists on both goals given to Haley Ward and Allison Leighton. This marked the second game of the season for Royer finding the back of the net twice in a single match. 


Andrea Shaggy made six saves for the Eagles while three Giants saw time in net with Emily Hawkins earning the win spending the entire first half in net while recording one save. Megan Novak took over starting the second half and Kali Kishter finished out the final six minutes. 


The Giants held the edge in overall shots, 15-5, while also posting the advantage in penalty corners, 8-3. 


The Eagles will remain in Connecticut for a match tomorrow, October 7th in the Falcons Field Hockey Tournament as they take on the host, Albertus Magnus with a 2:00 p.m. start time.
