Field Hockey Claims Ferrum Fields as Their Own


Written by Garrett Ruggieri

Following a heartbreaking overtime loss against Shenandoah, Roanoke responded by dropping a goose-egg against rival, Ferrum. The team traveled to Ferrum with redemption on the mind, and they followed through with a dominating 7-0 victory. Emma Clark kept a clean sheet in the cage, posting a shutout for the second time this season.

Hannah Bunten and Katie Martin both had a pair of goals while Emily Wooten added a game high three assists. The Maroons landed the first goal within the first two minutes of the game. The defense was on lockdown the entire game, allowing only one shot attempt. The team out shot Ferrum 26-1 in this lopsided victory, displaying that both ends if the field belonged to Roanoke on Wednesday.

This win helps notch in the Maroons second ODAC dub. This weekend, the Maroons travel to East. Mennonite in the final away game. Wrapping up the season, the field hockey team takes on Virginia Wesleyan at home on November 2nd. If they can manage to gather two more wins, the Maroons will even out their ODAC record to .500. Come and support the Maroons as they close out the 2019 field hockey season.
