The College of New Jersey’s field hockey team advanced to the Final Four next weekend in Kentucky. It’s their third Final Four appearance in four-years.
The Lions made it to the Final Four with a 2-0 win over Centre College at Lions Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Lions improved to 17-3 on the season. They’ll face Messiah College next weekend.
The Colonels ended their season with a 17-5 record.
This is the Lions 23rd Final Four appearance in program history. They are looking for their 12th National Championship— and first since the 2014 season.
The Falcons defeated the Lions 2-1 on Sept. 16 when Messiah College was the No. 1 ranked team at the time.
Cayla Andrews, who scored the game-winning against SUNY Cortland on Saturday afternoon, got the first goal of the game at the 5:15 mark. Sidney Padilla played the ball onto Andrews’ stick before she hit it past Colonels goalie Kristen Mulcahy on an eight-yard shot for the 1-0 lead.
Less than 10 minutes later, at 13:19, freshman Tori Tiefenthaler scores her 18th goal of the season. She made a move past a Colonel defender before shooting the ball past Mulcahy for the 2-0 lead.
The Colonels has some opportunities but was stopped by Lions goalie Christina Fabiano, who made four saves. Mulcahy made five saves in game.
