Field hockey: State College falls at home to Cumberland Valley

Cumberland Valley handed State College a 5-2 loss in the Lady Little Lions’ first game of the season on Tuesday.

Emma Way scored twice for Cumberland Valley, while Emily Allegar and Paige Meily scored goals for State College, which travels to Central Dauphin East on Thursday.

“We are a young team with just three seniors,” said head coach Karin Johnson. “We have a lot of work to do on being patient and being disciplined on the basics of the game. We’ll be strong if we can do the basic things well.”
