Field Hockey (10/1/10)

#11 College of New Jersey 5, Stockton 1

Debi O'Kane

Richard Stockton (0-9, 0-2 NJAC) played a ranked opponent for the second time in three games and fell to 11th-ranked College of New Jersey (9-2, 2-0) 5-1. Susie Balidemaj (Hamilton/Hamilton East) scored her team-leading fifth goal of the season for the Ospreys. Stockton goalkeeper Debi O’Kane (Cologne/Absegami) made 16 saves and became Stockton’s all-time leader in that category with 626 career stops.

TCNJ opened the scoring just 7:30 into the game, but O’Kane and the Osprey defense stiffened and did not allow a goal for the rest of the half despite a 14-2 disadvantage in shots. The Lions broke the game open with three goals in a nine-minute span of the second half. The score reached 5-0 before Balidemaj averted the shutout by netting an unassisted goal with just 53 seconds remaining for the 5-1 final score.
