The William & Mary field hockey team got back on the winning track Sunday, blanking Towson 2-0 on the road for the first shut-out of the year.  The Tribe improved to 5-7 overall and 1-1 in the Colonial Athletic Association with the win, while the Tigers fell to 2-10 and 0-2 in league play.

Box Score

The Tribe controlled the flow of action from the gun, out-shooting the Tigers 17-2 and taking 12 corners to just three for the home team.  The constant pressure paid off in the 25th minute, when Towson fouled the W&M attack right in front of the goal.  Sophomore Cammie Lloyd (Midlothian, Va.) was called to take the penalty stroke, and converted for the 1-0 lead.  It was Lloyd's sixth goal of the season, and proved to be her second game-winner of the year.

The attacking pressure continued in the second half, and generated another penalty opportunity in the 52nd minute.  This time, it was junior Amanda McAteer (King of Prussia, Pa.) who stepped to the spot and converted, putting the Tribe up 2-0.  It was McAteer's second penalty conversion in three attempts this year, both the fourth-most totals in school history.  For the season, W&M now has four penalty stroke goals, the third-most in program history (nine in 1995 and seven in 1993).  Senior Meredith Savage (Virginia Beach, Va.) was untested in goal, picking up her fourth career shut-out.

William & Mary is back in action next weekend, hosting Northeastern on Friday night, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m.
