The No. 20 Michigan State women’s field hockey team got off to an undefeated start this past weekend, winning both exhibition games against Central Michigan and Kent State.
Seven different Spartans accounted for the 10 total goals scored on Saturday.
In the opening game, the Spartans faced Central Michigan, a game Michigan State dominated from the first center pass. Goals from Allie Ahern, Abby Barker, Becky Stiles and Kristin Matula, all in the first 10 minutes of play, fueled the Spartans to a 4-1 lead at the half.
After winning the Big Ten championship last year, Michigan State’s field hockey team is looking to get back to where they left off.
When their season ended in early November, the team was given a two-month break and then it was back to work.
Despite losing five seniors to graduation, head coach Helen Knull is pleased with what she has seen from her team so far.
