ERIE | The Kutztown University field hockey team used three different goal scorers and a stout defensive effort in taking down Mercyhurst University 4-0 Saturday afternoon in a Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) contest.

The victory gives the Golden Bears (8-6 overall, 3-4 PSAC) momentum after a 2-0 defeat at the hands of West Chester University three days earlier.

Sophomore Kyra Wozniak (Plains, Pa./James M. Coughlin) scored just 6:41 into the game, and senior Madison Wampler (York, Pa./West York Area) tallied her first goal of the season during the first half, giving KU a 2-0 lead that it would hold until halftime.

Kutztown had a 16-2 shots advantage overall, and continued its scoring threats in the second half.

Sophomore Mackenzie Fuhrman (Lancaster, Pa./Manheim Township) and Wozniak each had a second half goal.

Wozniak’s ten goals on the season lead the team and is tied for fourth in the conference.

Sophomore Molly Bobjak (New Castle, Del./Padua Academy)recorded her first point on the year, contributing an assist on Wozniak’s first-half goal. Morgan Aldinger (Pennsburg, Pa./Upper Perkiomen) and Fuhrman also had assists in the win.

Fuhrman now has eight assists on the season, which is good for third in the PSAC.

Senior goalie Chardonnay Hope (New Castle, Del./William Penn)made two saves and picked up the win.

The Golden Bears return home to take on Mansfield University on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. at Andre Reed Stadium.
