Rutgers field hockey, women’s soccer build NCAA Tournament excitement

Top-seeded Rutgers opened the field hockey NCAA Tournament by defeating Delaware 2-1 on Friday. It was the Scarlet Knights’ first win in the tournament since 1986.

New Zealand native Lucy Bannatyne deflected in a goal from a penalty corner in the fourth quarter to put host Rutgers up 2-0, and the lead stood up.

Rutgers (19-3) will host a quarterfinal game Sunday at 1 p.m. against the winner of Liberty-Saint Joseph’s. If Rutgers wins Sunday, it will advance to the Final Four, which begins Nov. 19 and will be held at the University of Michigan.
