The 18th ranked University of Mary Washington field hockey team dropped a 1-0 decision at Wesley College in the Capital Athletic Conference tournament semifinals on Wednesday evening in Dover, Delaware. The Eagles fall to 15-5 on the season.

The lone score of the game was scored by Wesley's Abigail Hill at 23:34 on an assist from Danielle Tearl. The Eagles were short-handed at the time, after a yellow card was issued to UMW.

From there, the game went scoreless for the final 46:24, spelling defeat for the second time this season for UMW at Wesley. The Wolverines led in shots, 11-7, and UMW held a 7-6 edge in penalty corners.

The Wolverines will advance to the CAC Championship on Saturday.
