Field Hockey (9/13/11)


Liz Stankiewicz


Richard Stockton (3-2, 0-1 NJAC) faced a difficult task in its NJAC opener as the Ospreys visited 10th-ranked Rowan (3-2, 1-0). The Profs proved why they are one of highest-rated teams in the nation by dominating Stockton 6-0.

Ospreys’ goalkeeper Liz Stankiewicz (Freehold Twp./Freehold Twp.) faced an onslaught of 25 shots and responded well, with a career-high 10 saves.

Rachael Dix scored the first of her three goals for Rowan just 5:34 into the game. Amy McKeever then struck for two consecutive markers and the Profs led 3-0 at the half. Rowan outshot the Ospreys 13-0 in the period and Stankiewicz held her ground with seven saves.

Julie Cairone scored the first of Rowan’s three second-half tallied with 7:05 gone. Dix later completed her hat trick with a pair of goals 12 minutes apart for the 6-0 final score. Susie Balidemaj (Hamilton Twp./Steinert) registered Stockton’s only shot of the game in the second half, but the attempt was denied by Rowan goalie Jen Goldberg.
