P.S.C. FIELD HOCKEY WINS SALISBURY STATE TOURNAMENT

September 22nd, 1997 by Adam

SALISBURY, Md. – With an 8-2 win over Bridgewater College (Va.) Sunday, the Plymouth State College field hockey team wrapped up the championship of the Salisbury State Invitational Tournament.

The Panthers finished 3-0 in the tourney with wins Saturday over Denison (Ohio), 2-0, and national power Salisbury State, 2-1, in overtime. Sunday’s win over Bridgewater College was PSC’s fifth in a row and improved its record to 5-1 on the season under sixth-year head coach Wynn Hohlt.

Seniors Jenna Shearstone (Taunton, MA) and Erin Murphy (Collinsville, CT) led the way for PSC in the clincher against Bridgewater. Shearstone scored a pair of first half goals to give PSC the lead, and Murphy added two goals and an assist in the second half to help put the game away.

PSC got goals from four different players to capture the two wins Saturday. Senior Jen Martin (Saunderstown, RI) and Shearstone counted goals against Denison, with assists from junior Kim Webster (Dover, NH) and Tammi LeRoy (Barre, VT). Webster and senior Taryn Turcotte (South Berwick, ME) scored against Salisbury, an NCAA Tournament team in 1996, with Turcotte getting the overtime game winner from Webster and Erin Murphy.

“We played extremely well, especially in the Salisbury game,” said Hohlt. “So many people played well, and it shows when you look at how many different people scored for us. We’ve never won more than one game in that tournament, so winning the whole thing was a thrill.”

Also getting into the scoring act for the Panthers against Bridgewater were LeRoy, sophomore Jill Sutherland (Gloucester, MA), senior Jen Garrity (Greene, ME) and junior Holly Laratta (Toms River, NJ). Senior Carrie Killeen (Greenfield, MA) added a pair of assists, and solo assists were registered by Turcotte and juniors Boni Sordillo (Plymouth, NH) and Mandy Murphy (Collinsville, CT).

Panther goalkeeper Chris Perruzzi (So. Portland, ME) had an outstanding tournament, with 22 saves in the three games. She made seven saves against Salisbury State, three in overtime, including one on a penalty stroke.

PSC plays two road games in New England this week, Tuesday (Sept. 23) at New England College (3:30 p.m.) and Saturday at Elms College (2:00 p.m.).
