FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: #3 Shippensburg edges Mansfield 3-2 in PSAC West field hockey

 MANSFIELD – Rebekah Brown tied the game 2-2 in the 60th minute but Shippensburg’s Laura Wylde scored the game-winner less than two minutes later to lead #3 Shippensburg to a 3-2 win over Mansfield in a PSAC West matchup Tuesday afternoon at Spaulding Field.

Shippensburg took an early lead scoring on a Jamie Doughty goal two minutes into the game and held the lead until Mansfield’s Lauren Carden scored an unassisted goal 10 minutes later.

Shippensburg retook the lead on a goal by Kristina Taylor in the 26th minute with the Raiders holding a 2-1 halftime advantage.

Neither team managed to score in the first 25 minutes of the second half until Brown put back a rebounded ball for her fourth goal of the season tying the score at 2-2.

But Shippensburg answered right back with Wylde scoring the game winner in a flurry of action in front of the Mansfield net.

It was a huge improvement for Mansfield over the first meeting of the two schools this season when Shippensburg recorded a 7-0 win.

Brianna DeLuca had five saves in goal for Mansfield while Shippensburg’s Amanda Houser was credited with nine saves.

Mansfield falls to 6-0 overall and 3-4 in the PSAC West while Shippensburg improves to 12-3 and 4-2 in conference play.

Mansfield travels to Millersville this Saturday.
