WILKES-BARRE, PA -- The King's College Field Hockey team put on a shooting clinic this afternoon against the visiting Knights of Arcadia. King's out-shot Arcadia 36-2. The Monarch offense was dominating the entire game, as they downed the visitors by a score of 4-0.

Arcadia was able to hold the high-powered King's offense to just one goal in the first half. That goal came of the stick of midfielder Christina Glenn. Glenn took a blast from the top of the shooting circle, putting it past the goalkeeper.

Senior forward Debbie Wychock started out the second half with a goal. She scored just 3:16 into the second half, knocking in a rebounded shot. She also led the team in shooting, striking the ball 16 times. Twelve of those shots were on goal. Visiting goalie Brittany Rasmussen had her work cut out for her today, making 21 saves. Wychock found the back of the net twice.

Danielle Terracciano gave King's a 3-0 lead off a pass inside from Jenera Quinones.  Wychock found the net again, deflecting a pass from Quinones, with 10 minutes left in the contest.

The King's defense was strong as well as Arcadia was not able to get off a shot until five minutes left in the game. Starting goalie Erin McGinley played 52 minutes. Backup net minder Michelle Ray made one of two saves on the day. A defensive save was credited to defender Ashley Irwin, who made a diving stop when Ray was on the opposite post.

The Lady Monarchs are back in action again this Wednesday, hosting Marywood at 4:30 p.m. on the grass at Betzler Fields
