Elizabethtown, PA. - Goucher College Field Hockey visited the Catholic University Cardinals on Wednesday night, but despite best efforts, returned home with a 1 – 0 loss.

Going into halftime with a blank scoreboard, Catholic scored the only goal of the evening in the 45th minute of the contest.  Junior Goalkeeper Liz Zengel (Smithfield, VA) recorded 1 save on the evening as the Gophers held the Cardinals to just 8 shots and 2 shots on goal. 
Goucher outshot Catholic, 9 – 7, in the tight match up.  This is the first time since the two teams have met that Goucher has outshot Catholic and held the Cardinals to less than 10 shots.
The Gophers return to action on Saturday at home this Saturday, October 15th, against the visiting Elizabethtown Blue Jays.
