Friday's Field Hockey Scoreboard 9/13:

Kent State 13, St. Louis 0
Central Michigan 1, Iowa 7
Missouri State 0, Indiana 3


Kent State 13, St. Louis 0

KENT, Ohio – Whatever ideas are out there about 13 being an unlucky number Kent State field hockey (3-2) completely dismissed in their home opener victory over St. Louis (0-5).
The 2013 team scored 13 goals in the Friday the 13th game that started at the 13th hour.  Rebecca Lee led the team with 13 shots; Missy Ramsey, who wears jersey No. 13, scored two goals on three shots and had an assist.  The last time Kent State scored ten or more goals in a game was nearly 13 years in a 10-0 win over Miami.
Besides debunking an old superstition, the Golden Flashes also put the game in the record book.  13 goals is the second most scored in a single game in program history.  The 36 points earned by ten different players is also a second-best single game record.  Individually, Julia Hofmann's four assists places her in a tie for fourth-most in a single game.
"I'm happy we executed our game plan today," Head Coach Kathleen Wiler said.  "We looked to be really disciplined and productive inside our 25-yard line, and that's what we did.  I couldn't be happier to come out with a win today."
Eight different Golden Flashes found the back of the net in the 13-0 win.  Lee, Ramsey, Alexis Madeira, Hannah Faulkner and Melanie Kahn all scored twice.  Hofmann, Madison Thompson and Shannon Martin were all able to contribute with a goal each.
Most of the scoring came with help, as Kent State also had ten assists in the game.  Aside from Hofmann's lead of four, Faulkner had two assists while Ramsey, Martin, Alyssa McFerren and Abbie Carrico all had one.
"This team just has so many people contributing," said Wiler, "and that's why they're fun to work with.  We just don't depend on one person.  It takes so many people to make a performance happen."
Goalkeeper Jahna Jordan recorded the third shutout of her career and first of the season, earning four saves in the match in a full 70 minutes of action.
The Golden Flashes outshot the Billikens 49-9, with 34 of those shots coming on goal.
Kent State returns to action on Sunday (Sept. 15) as they take on Villanova at Murphy-Mellis field.  Game time is set for noon.

Central Michigan 1, Iowa 7

Iowa City, Iowa – The Central Michigan field hockey team was unable to keep up No. 8 Iowa in a 7-1 loss Friday.
Junior forward Cayleigh Immelman chipped in the Chippewas’ (2-3) lone goal by the goalkeeper 10:23 minutes into the first half to give the Maroon and Gold an early 1-0 lead, but the Hawkeyes' (4-1) defense held CMU to only three shots on goal and four penalty corners the rest of the way.
Despite the loss, sophomore goalkeeper Sadie Reynolds kept fighting in the cage. Reynolds posted a season-high ten saves during the contest saving the first two shots before the Hawkeyes could score.
CMU defense held Iowa to only two goals in the first half. Iowa’s junior midfielder Dani Hemeon put the Black and Gold on the board at the 17:15 mark in the first half to even the match, 1-1. Fellow Hawkeye, Natalie Cafone found the back of the cage to give the home squad a 2-1 advantage at the break..
The Hawkeye struck its offense hard and early in the beginning of the second half. Iowa’s Sara Watro and Stephanie Norlander scored two goals each to bring the Hawkeyes to a victory.
The Maroon and Gold continue play in a neutral site contest versus Stanford on Saturday, September 14 at 3 p.m. at Grant Field.

Bears goalkeeper Andrea Bain (Sr., Victoria, British Columbia) made six stops in seven attempts in one of her strongest performances of the year. Hillary Lawless, Holly Scherer and Ciara Saunders notched shots for the visitors.
