The New Haven field hockey team huddles against Franklin Pierce, West Haven, Oct. 1, 2022.

The New Haven field hockey team (3-4, 3-0 NE-10) kept their win streak alive when they shut out Franklin Pierce (0-7, 0-2 NE-10) 4-0 on Saturday afternoon during the Title IX Game.

New Haven acted swiftly, scoring only two minutes into the first quarter. The first goal of the game was scored by midfielder Sophie Schreck in a straight shot to the back right corner, eluding Ravens goalie MacKenzie Potvin. Less than two minutes later, Schreck found the goal again with an assist from midfielder and forward Zharria John.

With 6:07 left in the half, midfielder and defender Taylor Geaglone scored her first goal of the season when she capitalized on Schreck’s corner kick, knocking the ball past Potvin to stretch New Haven’s lead to 3-0.

The Chargers started the second half strong, immediately taking command of the field. Forward Abby Nixon scored off Potvin’s goalie pads after less than three minutes of play. With the score 4-0, New Haven refused to let up. Despite allowing Franklin Pierce to take three shots on goal in the fourth quarter, goalie Keira Integlia denied them any scores. Integlia tallied her eighth career shutout, making nine saves during the game.
