Bellarmine shuts out Centre 1-0
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 2, 2008)--Bellarmine University junior Sarah Flood (Mercy Academy) picked a great time to score her first career goal, as it was the only one of the game and propelled the host Knights past in-state rival Centre College 1-0 in field hockey this evening.
The game was as close as the score would indicate with Bellamrine getting one more shot (11-10) and one more penalty corner (8-7) than the Colonels.
The game also featured a number or exciting plays including a flourish near the end that saw Bellarmine goalkeeper senior Kristina Thomas (Manual H.S.) lying flat in front of the goal as a Centre shot sailed wide left. Thomas finished with six saves for the Knights, while her counterpart Patty Cowley had five for the Colonels.
The game's lone goal came 26:46 into the game, when Flood found the back of the cage from about 12 yards out on a pass from Hannah McNally.
Bellarmine moved to 5-7 on the season, while Centre fell to 8-3.
