KEENE STATE ELIMINATES PLYMOUTH STATE FROM ECAC FIELD HOCKEY TOURNEY

November 8th, 1997 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, NH – Freshman goalie Erin Bonner (East Stroudsburg, PA) made 19 saves through regulation play and two overtimes Saturday to lead #4 seed Keene State College to a victory over top seeded Plymouth State in the semi-finals of the ECAC Division III New England Field Hockey Tournament at Arold Field.

The final score of the PSC-KSC game goes down as a 1-0 verdict, with Keene State advancing in the tournament on the penalty strokes. Keene scored once in its penalty stroke attempts, while PSC came up empty in five tries.

Keene State, advances to the championship game Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at Arold Field. The Owls will face second-seeded Middlebury College, who knocked off Tufts, 2-0, in the other semi-final.

The win also gives Keene State a 3-2 lead in the Presidents’ Trophy standings between the two schools. The Presidents’ Trophy will be awarded to the school that wins the most head-to-head meetings between PSC and KSC. The Owls also defeated PSC in field hockey during the regular season on Oct. 19th, which marked the last time the Panthers lost prior to Saturday.

With a crowd of over 500 fans watching the penalty strokes, Keene State outlasted the Panthers. Bonner continued her outstanding play, stopping three of PSC’s attempts. PSC keeper Chris Perruzzi (So. Portland, ME) also played a strong game, making 10 saves, including three spectacular stops in the second overtime.

The Panthers, who were making their fifth consecutive post-season appearance, wrap up an outstanding campaign at 16-5 under sixth-year head coach Wynn Hohlt.
