Entering the season, the Rutgers field hockey team wanted to
surpass the 30 goals it scored last year. With seven consecutive
losses and as many games of scoring one goal or less to begin the
year, the vision looked more like a pipe dream. But the Scarlet
Knights (3-9, 1-3) grew into a different team, one that scored two
or more goals in three of its past four games.
All season long, the Rutgers field hockey team looked like it was on
the verge of earning a marquee win for the program. And this past
weekend, it finally got one.After losing to No. 4 Michigan (10-2,
5-0) on Friday, the No. 20 Scarlet Knights (8-5, 2-2) bounced back to
triumph over No. 12 Stanford (7-4, 4-0) in overtime on Saturday. It was
the highest ranked opponent that they have ever beaten in program
history and along with wins over then-No. 23 Old Dominion and then-No.
19 Iowa, they now have three wins over ranked opponents this season
after previously having just three all time.
As the regular season comes to a close, the Rutgers field hockey team
looks like one that can wreak havoc in the postseason. But at the same
time, there is still some work to do.The No. 18 Scarlet Knights
(8-7, 3-3) split their last two games in their second-to-last regular
season weekend, winning at Michigan State (8-8, 2-4) before losing to
No. 25 Ohio State (8-7, 1-5) at home on Sunday.
Thanks to all-around great play, especially from two freshmen in particular, the Rutgers field hockey team is off to their best start in nearly a decade.The Scarlet Knights (4-0) took care of business this past weekend, beating Penn and Old Dominion on the road to remain undefeated.
