Oberlin 1, Lebanon Valley 0

Nov. 9, 2005

A penalty corner goal from senior Christine Castilla gave the Oberlin College field hockey team all that it would need to advance to the next round of the NCAA tournament. The Yeowomen defeated Lebanon Valley College 1-0 in the first round of tournament play on Wednesday afternoon.

Castilla's goal came with 57:22 left in the game. Senior Meg Reitz would get the assist. Oberlin's stingy defense would prove key in the defeat. Sophomore Lauren Malanowski had an amazing afternoon between the pipes. Malanowski tallied 13 saves on the day and added a seventh shutout to her record. Yeowomen defenders Samantha Kyrkostas and Kaitlin Barrer each made a defensive save to preserve the victory.

"Everyone knows that Oberlin is an excellent academic college," Oberlin Head Coach Deb Ranieri said. "The students here do amazing things and this is just another way in which they are excelling."

Oberlin advances to the second round to take on the two-time defending Division III national champions, Salisbury University. The game is set for Saturday, November 12 at 10:00 a.m. in Salisbury, Maryland.
