The Roanoke College field hockey team honored four seniors on Senior Day by picking up a 3-1 win over Randolph-Macon at Kerr Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Alexis Wright, Martha Hurley, Julia Brown, and Madison Filson were all honored prior to the game at Kerr Stadium in Salem.
Both teams’ defense was on display early on with the Maroons not finding the back of the cage until 11:40 when Hope Keller took a rebounded shot and fired a goal past the keeper for a 1-0 lead. That’s how the game stood at the half.
Less than four minutes into the third quarter, Saige Bullock fired and snuck in what became the game-winner at 33:39 to put the Maroons ahead 2-0. Bullock got back-to-back goals with another unassisted goal at 40:33 to put Roanoke ahead 3-0.
With the win the Maroons improved to 11-3 overall and it was their 11th win in their past 12 games. Roanoke is undefeated in the ODAC at 5-0 with the conference tournament scheduled to begin on Tuesday, November 1.
