PHILADELPHIA –Villanova freshman Leah High scored two goals to lead the Wildcats over La Salle, 3-1, in non-conference field hockey action on Wednesday at DeVincent Field. Explorer freshman Maddy Tettelbach (Fairfax Station, Va. / South County), the reigning Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week, scored the only goal for La Salle.

The Wildcats (2-2) got on the board first in the 16th minute when Jessica Swoboda found the back of the cage off a rebound. With 4:40 remaining before halftime, VU increased its lead to 2-0 when High deflected a shot by Laura Wilson.

La Salle cut the deficit to one when Tettelbach took a pass from sophomore Heather Barretta (Rosefield, N.J. / West Essex) and redirected it past Wildcat keeper Megan Goelz with 18 minutes to play. It was her team-best third goal of the season.

The Wildcats deflated the hosts just two minutes later when High scored again after deflecting a shot by Olivia Maggitti.

La Salle goalie Lisa Shaffer (Hershey, Pa. / Lower Dauphin) made four stops in the loss. Goelz stopped 10 shots.

The Explorers (1-3) held a 17-11 advantage in shots and a 10-3 lead in corners.

The Blue and Gold wrap up a three-game homestand on Saturday against Siena at 2 PM. Live statistics will be available via GoExplorers.com.
