Ewing – Sharon Pfluger returned home for the first time since winning her 500th career game.
Pfluger, the head coach of the TCNJ field hockey team, won her 500th game on September 10th. But the Lions have been on the road for the past two games before returning home.
The Lions defeated the Gwynedd Mercy University Griffins, 3-0 , yesterday afternoon at Lions Stadium.
The Lions improved to 5-1 overall with a 1-0 conference reference. In addition, the Lions are on a five game win streak since losing their first game of the season.
The Griffins are 3-3 and will start conference games later this season.
The Lions have won all three games in the all-time series. TCNJ has won two of these games at Lions Stadium, while last year’s meeting came at Gwynedd Mercy.
The Lions have outscored the Griffins, 12-3, in the three games. This is the first shutout that the Lions have recorded against them.
And while it is their first shutout of the season, the Lions were nearly shutout in the second half of this game. Lexi Smith ended the Lions second half shutout with a goal with 22 seconds left on the clock.
Danielle Andreula and Smith contributed goals in the first half for the Lions, as the score was 2-0 at halftime. Smith took over as the team leader with 5 goals in the first half, while Andreula has 2 goals in the first 6 games.
Amanda Krause picked up the win for the Lions. She made 4 saves in the game, and this is her first shutout of her Lions career.
Kelly Kruk dropped her third game for the Griffins, as she now stands at 3-3 on the year. She made 14 saves in the game, while allowing the 3 goals.
