The Williams field hockey team suffered a setback this Saturday when they lost to regional powerhouse Trinity College. Despite taking a 1-0 lead, Williams was outmatched by the Trinity offense, which out-shot the Ephs 14 to 6. Trinity subsequently went on to win by a score of 3 to 1.
The first half opened with most of the play in front of the Williams goal, but the defense did a good job of fighting off the Bantam attack. The Ephs were eventually able to force the ball downfield where Catherine Polisi ’99 fired a shot past the Trinity goalie, giving Williams a 1-0 lead. However, Trinity fought back, matching that goal and adding another before the end of the first half.
The Ephs played the second half with more offensive power, but were unable to generate any scoring. Battling throughout, Williams was able to hold Trinity in place, but with about five minutes remaining in the game the Bantams struck again, bringing the final score to 3 to 1. Williams goalie Tailer Senior ’01 made 12 saves.
The Ephs’ record now stands at 3-2. The team faces RPI today and has two upcoming trips to Maine scheduled, playing Colby on Friday and Bates this Saturday.
