Field Hockey Advances In NCAA Championship With Win Over American
FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- Every athletic team has goals. And every athletic team has aspirations. The problem with athletics is that not everyone gets to reach those goals or experience those aspirations. But every now and then, a season comes along when ambition and reality collide. Such is the season that the Fairfield University field hockey team has enjoyed in 2019. The 25th-ranked Stags found out last Sunday that they would have a chance to host an NCAA tournament game on campus and they made the most of that opportunity by beating #23 American University by a 3-1 score at University Field. The victory sends Fairfield (19-2 overall) to an in-state matchup with second-ranked UConn in Storrs this Friday. The game is scheduled for a 12 pm start.
