OXFORD, Ohio. – Four different Cardinals scored goals as the Ball State field hockey team defeated Mid-American Conference foe Miami, 6-5, Wednesday afternoon at Miami Turf Field.

The RedHawks outshot the Cardinals 22-12, and recorded a 10-5 advantage on penalty corners, however the victory marked the season sweep for BSU after the squad shut out MU, 3-0, Sept. 21 at the BSU Turf Field.

At 16:25 mark, freshman defender Laura Malinoski (Eastampton, N.J./Rancocas Valley Regional) opened up scoring for Ball State with her second career goal off a Cardinal penalty corner past the RedHawks’ netminder Sarah Mueller. Freshman midfielder Sanne Hermans (The Hague, Holland) provided the assist.

Miami evened the score at 22:16 mark as Kaitlin Evans netted an unassisted shot past the Cardinals’ senior goalkeeper Chelsea Mitchell (Steven, Pa./Cocalico).

Ball State followed that performance with a second goal at 31:59 mark as freshman midfielder Tori Widrick (Cazenovia, N.Y./Cazenovia) scored off a penalty stroke, her second goal of the season. Miami would then respond less than two minutes before halftime.

The Cardinals struck early in the second period at 38:04 mark as freshman midfielder Tarel Teach (Virginia Beach, Va./Ocean Lakes) scored her first career goal off a deflection.

Then, Widrick buried a shot from the middle of the circle to put Ball State up, 4-2. Senior forward Devanny Kuhn (Louisville, Ky./Sacred Heart Academy) recorded the assists for both goals.

The RedHawks then scored twice to even the score at 4-4 until Hermans struck off a penalty corner to put the Cardinals up by one at 54:44 mark. Malinoski provided the assist.

The final minutes of the contest saw Miami tie the game up for a third time until Teach scored the game-winner, her second goal of the contest, off a penalty corner at 68:18 mark. Hermans provided the assist for Ball State.

On the day, Widrick finished with four shots, while Kuhn, Teach, Hermans posted two shots and senior defender Gretchen Lulow (Ballwin, Mo./Cor Jesu Academy) and Malinoski recorded one each.

Freshman defender Jenna Rosenberry (Manheim, Pa./Elizabethtown Area) tallied two defensive saves during the contest, while Mitchell recorded six saves during 70 minutes of action in the cage.

Head coach Beth Maddox and the team returns to the BSU Turf Field Saturday for a weekend contest versus Michigan State at Noon.
