ROUNDUP: LHU field hockey shuts out Kent State
Freshman Lydia George scored 2:41 into overtime and the Lock Haven University field hockey team beat Kent State, 1-0, Sunday. LHU (7-2) extended its win streak to five matches and remained undefeated in overtime this year with the win. It marked Lock Haven’s second straight 1-0 shutout after beating Rider, 1-0, Saturday.
Penn College’s Taylor Lapointe won at No. 3 singles, 6-0, 6-1, but the Wildcats lost to Penn State Mont Alto in women’s tennis, 3-2.
A 3 1/2 sack effort and a three field-goal game, respectively, were enough to help Lycoming College football players Dwight Hentz and kicker/punter Zack Czap earn the Middle Atlantic Conference’s Defensive and Special Teams Player of the Week nods. In addition, sophomore wide receiver Ryan Umpleby earned a spot on the MAC Weekly Honor Roll.
Hentz picked up his second career MAC Defensive Player of the Week after having a monster game against No. 24 Widener, posting 3.5 sacks and six tackles to lead the Warriors to a 16-14 win.
Czap earned his school-record seventh weekly citation from the MAC. Czap tied the school’s single-game record with three field goals in a game, his last a 33-yarder with 2:24 left, lifted the Warriors to the win over Widener.
Umpleby earned a spot on the weekly honor roll, after notching eight receptions for 112 yards and a touchdown.
