THE RUNDOWN:  

  • The Wheaton College field hockey team dropped a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to the visiting Wellesley College Blue in the Lyons' season finale this afternoon on Nordin Field. 
  • Hannah Arkin opened the scoring for both teams, finding the back of the net without an assist at 18:23. 
  • Wellesley took the next 10:45 minutes before netting back-to-back goals, with Hannah Maisano scoring off of a penalty stroke and Carson Dennis registering an unassisted goal in the 54th minute. 
  • Ellie Williams scored the equalizing goal with less than four minutes in regulation at 2-2 after dumping the ball in from a scramble, but Wellesley stormed back to respond on the next play as Caitlin Campbell notched the game-winner on a reverse chip just over a minute later. 
  • Wheaton's offense posessed the ball in the final minutes and produced a pair of close opportunities to score, but were just unable to convert as the clock wound down.
