Fall sports: Dulaney beats Towson, 2-0, in field hockey

September 15, 2012|By Sandra McKee, The Baltimore Sun

Suzy Banister and Maddie Manzoni scored Friday as the Dulaney field hockey team defeated Baltimore County rival Towson, 2-0, and evened its season record.

Banister opened the scoring for the Lions (3-3) when she set up at the post in the first half and put the ball past Towson's goalie. Manzoni's goal came early in the second half, as Dulaney worked hard to keep the pressure on Towson's defense.

"I was inspired to score," Banister said. "I have an interview Saturday with the McDaniel College coach about field hockey there next year and I knew if I didn't score and we didn't win there would be a captain's practice tomorrow and I wouldn't be able to go.

"It felt good to win. Towson is pretty close to us and it's a rivalry. It's competitive. But we know a lot of their girls and at the end, we're just happy to see people we know — at least I am."

The Generals (3-3) were handicapped by the loss of midfielder-defender Maggie Coccagna. The senior recently returned from a surgery and came into the game hampered by a groin pull. She went to the sideline in the second half when she aggravated it.

"I think I hyperextended it," Coccagna said. "Hopefully, I'm going to be good to go by the time we play Hereford" on Oct. 10.
