Field Hockey (10/6/10)

Manhattanville 4, Stockton 1

Susie Balidemaj

Richard Stockton (0-10) played its second consecutive road game and fell to Manhattanville (4-7) 4-1. Freshman Susie Balidemaj (Hamilton/Hamilton East) scored the lone goal for the Ospreys with an assist by Nancy White (Ocean City/Ocean City). Balidemaj has tallied Stockton’s last five goals, over a span of five games. Goalkeeper Debi O’Kane (Cologne/ Absegami) made six saves in each half for a total of 12.

Manhattanville took an early 1-0 lead just 3:14 into the contest but Balidemaj answered for Stockton at the 9:23 mark, deflecting home a shot by White for her team-high sixth goal of the season. Manhattanville wasted little time regaining the lead as the Valiants scored just 37 seconds later for a 2-1 advantage. Manhattanville added a third marker later in the first half for a 3-1 advantage at intermission.

In the second half, Stockton was unsuccessful with a five-minute man-advantage on a yellow card. The Ospreys’ best chance to cut into the deficit came later on a shot by Megan Irving (Oaklyn/Collingswood) that was denied on a defensive save. Manhattanville tacked on a late goal with 4:52 remaining for the 4-1 final score.
