TOWSON, Md. – In the first meeting between the two schools since 1989, the Towson University field hockey team travels to Lehigh on Sunday afternoon. The Tigers (0-4) and Mountain Hawks (0-5) are set to begin at noon on Sunday.
Towson will be looking to build on a strong second half from their game at Penn last Sunday. The Tigers trailed 3-1 in the second half before using goals from sophomore Courtney Branco and freshman Heather Jenney to tie the game at 3-3. Penn used a late goal to win the game but the Tigers scored a season-high in goals in that contest.
Branco and Jenney lead the Tigers in scoring this season. Branco has three goals in four games while Jenney has started her Tiger career with a goal and an assist. Sophomore Tashani Dickson has made 33 saves in goal for the Tigers.
Lehigh has an 0-5 record following a 4-2 loss at Fairfield on Friday. Entering the game with the Stags, Kimberly Eng led the Mountain Hawks with three goals and two assists. Kimberly Maltinsky had 35 saves in her first four games.
Following Sunday’s game, the Tigers return to action on Saturday, Sept. 15 for a noon game at Bucknell. Towson then makes its home debut on Sunday, when it hosts Providence at 2 p.m.
