The Wittenberg field hockey team has had an extremely exciting season so far this year, and the NCAC opener didn’t disappoint. The Tigers opened conference play at home on Saturday, Sept. 14 against rival Wooster. Wooster had owned the Tigers recently, having defeated Wittenberg in five straight matches before Saturday’s contest. The Tigers were locked in a 2-2 tie before juniors Megan Loofbourrow and Beth Warning put the home team on top for good for a 4-2 victory. Warning also scored earlier in the contest and freshman Eva van Dijkman also scored. Freshman goalie Sarah Brownell notched her first victory in goal. The win pushes the Tigers to (2-3) overall and (1-0) in NCAC play. The Tigers next host Oberlin on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 4 p.m. at the Edwards-Maurer Field.
