Hinds Sets Another Career High Saturday at Rhodes

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Playing two games in less than 16 hours proved too much for the shorthanded Belmont Abbey field hockey team on Saturday, resulting in a 7-0 defeat to Rhodes. Paige Hinds made a career-high nine saves for the Crusaders.

After defeating Hendrix 3-2 in double-overtime Friday night, The Abbey traveled almost three hours for an 11 a.m. start against the Lynx. The Crusaders hung tough in the early going, falling behind 1-0 in the first five minutes, but allowing just one other goal before intermission. However, the effort took its toll on the Crusaders who surrendered five goals in the second. 

Rhodes held a 21-4 advantage in shots with Kayley Williams (two), Marissa Olmos and Xanthe Rademeyer registering shots. 

Belmont Abbey begins a four-game homestand on Thursday against Lindenwood. The ECAC matchup will be played at Davidson.
