Having yet to be scored on in 2010, the Centre College field hockey team posted its third straight shutout victory to start the season defeating Ohio Wesleyan University 1-0 Saturday, Sept. 11 at Farris Stadium in Danville, Ky.
The Colonels, which have now out-scored opponents 7-0 in three matches, improve to 3-0, while Ohio Wesleyan falls to 2-2 this year. It's the first time since 2008, Centre has posted three straight shutouts. The Colonels tallied four straight shutout wins that year.
Following a scoreless first half, Centre's Courtney Kuiper (Louisville, Ky.) hit the back of the cage for an unassisted goal and the game-winner.
Centre out-shot the Ohio Wesleyan 33-7 and held a 15-13 advantage in penalty corners. Junior Patty Cowley (Louisville, Ky.) earned the win in goal for the Colonels. Cowley stopped all six shots she faced.
