Angulas' overtime tally lifts field hockey over CNU
The No. 2 Salisbury University field hockey team scored a key Capital Athletic Conference victory over Christopher Newport University on Wednesday night at Sea Gull Stadium. The Sea Gulls got the scoring started in the 16th minute when senior Annah Brittingham put home the game’s first goal, collecting her own rebound and slipping it under CNU goalkeeper Bailey Lien for the 1-0 lead. Salisbury peppered Lien in the closing minutes of the first half, but could not find the insurance tally. In the second half, the Captains turned up the heat on Salisbury goalie Tressie Windsor, who recorded a pair of saves in the contest, but Christopher Newport was able to put home the equalizer on Rachel Cooke’s score in the 43rd minute. The contest remained tied through regulation, but seven minutes into the extra session, sophomore Madison Angulas got her first career goal at the right time, registering the game winner, tipping home the hard cross from Brittingham. Salisbury heads to St. Mary’s College of Maryland on Saturday, October 19 for its next contest.
