The Kent State field hockey team (1-6) recorded two more losses this weekend, losing to both Penn State and Michigan University.

The Flashes lost Saturday’s game 2-1 to No. 18 ranked Penn State and lost again to Michigan (3-1) on Sunday.

Sophomore Alison Harmatz scored the Flashes only goal with one minute and thirty seconds left in Saturday’s game.

Junior goalkeeper Andrea Rinehart played the full game Saturday as she faced 12 shots, making eight saves.

Head coach Kathleen Wiler decided to let Rinehart start as the Flashes headed into Sunday’s game against Michigan.

The Wolverines scored the first goal ten minutes into the first half before junior Madison Thompson scored, tying the game at the end of the first half.

The Wolverines responded in the second half with two back-to-back goals, giving them a 3-1 win over the Flashes.

Kent State will return home to Murphy-Mellis field to take on Longwood University on Sunday at 12 p.m.
