Field hockey squeaks through America East quarterfinals

No. 22 Stanford field hockey (14-5, 5-1 America East) triumphed over the University of New Hampshire (6-12, 3-5 America East) in a close 4-3 quarterfinal game in the America East conference tournament. The Cardinal started off strong with a 2-0 lead at the end of the first half, but the Wildcats retaliated with a hat trick of their own.

Stanford clashes with Cal in field hockey’s Big Game

No. 21 Stanford field hockey (8-4, 1-0 America East) prepares for a match against their cross-bay rival competitor, No. 26 Cal (3-8, 0-1 America East), at Berkeley on Friday at 4 p.m. PST. Having conquered a tough road test with No. 6 Michigan last weekend in Iowa City (score of 4-2), with Nina Randolph, Phoebe Crosthwaite, Corinne Zanolli and Emma Christus all making stellar goals, the Cardinal ended their colossal eight-game winning streak – their longest winning streak since securing 12 consecutive games in 2014 – last Sunday with their first loss in over a month against No. 10 Iowa (score of 0-3).

Field hockey upsets Michigan, falls to Iowa in weekend contests

At a two-game event in Iowa City this past weekend, No. 21 Stanford (8-4, 1-0 America East) beat No.6 Michigan (9-5, 5-1 Big Ten) in a 4-2 upset, securing their eighth consecutive win, but lost 3-0 to No.10 Iowa (11-3, 3-2 Big Ten) the following day. The Cardinal had palpable momentum when they came off of their longest winning streak since securing 12 consecutive games in 2014, but the Hawkeyes’ petrifying pressure proved too much. Regardless, the team should be proud for securing a balanced 1-1 record against two top-10 opponents.
