LEXINGTON, Va. — The Washington and Lee field hockey team dropped to 1-3 on the year after Sunday's 3-0 loss to Johns Hopkins at the W&L Turf Field. The Blue Jays improved to 3-1 overall.
Johns Hopkins scored its first goal in the third minute of the contest off a penalty corner. Senior midfielder Liane Tellier (Cherry Hill, N.J./Cherry Hill East) passed to first-year midfielder Gabby Giannone (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) who then redirected the ball into the left side of the net to give the Blue Jays the 1-0 advantage.
W&L senior goalkeeper Kirsten Kyne (Baltimore, Md./Loch Rave) kept the game close stopping a season-high 18 shots. It wasn't until there was under 10 minutes left in the second half before JHU added the final two tallies.
With 9:03 remaining, the Blue Jays' junior defender Sarah Henderson (Rumson, N.J./Rumson-Fair Haven Regional) passed the ball in front of the goal, and junior midfielder Storm Kodde (Riverside, Conn./Greenwich) deflected the ball over Kyne for the score.
The Blue Jays added their final goal three minutes later when Kodde collected the ball in a scrum in front of the goal and tallied her second score of the contest.
The Generals took eight shots in the game with two on goal. Johns Hopkins totaled 31 shots with 22 on goal. Kyne's 18 saves were three off her own W&L single-game record, and tied for the third-most by a W&L goalkeeper.
Washington and Lee next plays again Kean in a neutral-site contest at Roanoke on Saturday, September 15.
