On Sunday, The Rock dropped its third straight game after their opening game win. Slippery Rock lost to Seton Hill, while scoring a season-low six goals. The game ultimately ended 16-6, with the Griffins pulling out their third win in as many games.
The Rock never led in the game, and it allowed two goals in the opening minute. The first goal came only 18 seconds into the game when Kate Kada scored her fourth of the season. Alaina TeSelle scored only 30 seconds later to put Seton Hill up, 2-0.
The Rock got on the board about five minutes into the game when Hayley Pimentel scored her seventh of the season. But, almost as soon as The Rock looked to get back in the game, Seton Hill scored two quick goals and put themselves ahead, 4-1.
The Rock offense sputtered throughout the game as they struggled to get going, and because of that, the defense was left vulnerable. In the first half, Kristi and Kate Kada took over the first half scoring five of the eight goals for the Griffins. The Rock’s Francesca Lindelow and Sam Barnhart scored The Rock’s other two goals in the first half, which led to a 8-3 deficit at the half.
The Rock opened up the second half strong, but ultimately allowed two goals. Kristi Kada scored her fourth goal of the game to put them up 10-3. She wouldn’t be done scoring as she put two more goals on the board, including the final goal of the game which sealed the 16-6 victory.
The Rock did have three more goals in an effort to make a comeback. Jamie Dicarlo and Molly Buettner scored back-to-back to make the game 10-5, but in the end, the Griffins went on a 6-1 run to end the game. The Rock allowed five of those goals in the last 12 minutes of the game.
The Rock will return to action on Tuesday at Edinboro where they will look for their first PSAC win of the season. Edinboro is set to play their first game of the season and they face off against a Rock team that is in a slide. The Rock has lost three straight now and will look to finally rebound.
