Springfield Edges Out Field Hockey for Win

On Tuesday night the field hockey team lost to Springfield College 32. It was a difficult loss for the previously undefeated team.

During the first half, MIT struggled to play at Springfield's pace. (The college was division I two years ago and still had some of those players). No matter, the teams were pretty evenly matched. Springfield was just lucky enough to get the ball in the net and was up 30 at the half.

On the losing side of the scoreboard, MIT picked up the intensity during the second half. Connie Sadowski '99 scored the first goal with and assist from Nicole Botcheos '00.

This got the excitement flowing. MIT, hoping to even up the score, attacked Springfield, but time was running out. MIT was awarded an offensive corner and a timeout was called.

The game resumed, and with seconds left, Tracy Sadowski '99 scored with an assist from Botcheos and Connie Sadowski. Once again, MIT finished in style.

The team's next home game is Thursday Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. on the turf.
