MILLERSVILLE, Pa. -- Sophomore Paige Hinds made a career-high 13 saves, but Belmont Abbey dropped its field hockey match at third-ranked Millersville by a 5-0 score line.
The Marauders (13-3) broke into the scoring column at the 8:45 mark of the contest, then added a pair of goals before intermission. In the second half, neither team could find the cage until 3:37 remaining, when Millersville scored the first of two goals in a span of 75 seconds. The Crusaders, with three key members out due to injury, were forced to use just 10 players over the final 35 minutes.
Belmont Abbey (7-9) did not register a shot in the contest, while also not earning a penalty corner.
The regular season wraps up next week with a trip to ECAC Division II Field Hockey League foes Lindenwood and Bellarmine. The Crusaders can guarantee a postseason tournament bid with a sweep, but need at least a split to have a chance at the league tournament.
