Second-Half Comeback Leads SFPA Over Sacred Heart 3-1

(Loretto, PA) – Lindsay Kasten (Fair Haven, NJ) scored her team-leading sixth goal of the year, but the St. Francis (PA) Red Flash used three second-half goals to beat the Sacred Heart Pioneer field hockey team 3-1 Sunday afternoon.

Kasten scored off a penalty corner at the 26:10 mark, with Chelsea Carslon (Peterborough, NH) earning the assist.  Carlson generated the majority of SHU's offensive opportunities throughout the game, leading the Pioneers with three of the team's six shots on goal.
