Florida Tech (+2)

Eight Panthers scored in a 20-5 win over Concordia-St. Paul. Aleah Fjelstad led the way with four goals and two assists. The Panthers aim for their ninth straight win tonight as they welcome Colorado-Mesa.


NYIT (-6)

The Bears’ 8-7 home loss to unranked Bentley dropped them to No. 10. They corralled just six of 17 draw controls and were outshot 23-17 in the their first defeat of the season. They rebounded with two home wins and will travel to Southern New Hampshire Thursday for their first road game in nearly a month.

Shippensburg (-2)

The Raiders dropped their league home-opener to previously unranked Bloomsburg, 8-4, struggling to solve Huskies goalie Angela DiPasquale, who made 11 saves. Shippensburg continues PSAC play Tuesday at No. 20 Kutztown.



The Huskies enter thanks in part to an 8-4 road win over then-No. 18 Shippensburg Saturday. Five Huskies scored during the decisive first half, and Bloomsburg impressively led by as many as six goals in their PSAC win. Goalie Angela DiPasquale surrendered just two goals through the game’s first 53 minutes.


The unbeaten Bears have outscored their last three foes 51-14, but they’ll get a test Tuesday at home against Shippensburg. Makayla Bowman averages 4.5 goals per game for Kutztown.


Indiana (Pa.)

The Crimson Hawks’ started the season 0-2 before defeating Virginia-Wise, 18-2, Saturday. A week prior, IUP lost at Florida Tech, 16-12, before a 15-4 Wednesday defeat at Florida Southern.

Southern New Hampshire

Southern New Hampshire dropped its Northeast-10 opener at home to No. 19 Pace, 19-11. Then Penmen fell behind 5-0 and 12-6 at the half. They’ve got a rivalry game Wednesday at Saint Anselm.
