Stroudsburg scores first, but after that it's all Hornets as they beat Mounties 3-1
RECAP - Despite trailing for the first time after allowing its first goal of the season, Emmaus wasn't going to be denied in Stroudsburg's upset bid on its home field on Tuesday afternoon as the Hornets fought back with three unanswered goals to earn a 3-1 win over the Mounties.
Senior Joy Muller (pictured above) scored a goal in each half - her 9th and 10th of the season - to lead the offense as Emmaus improved to 6-0 in the EPC and 7-0 overall. Fellow senior Kayla Kisthardt also added a goal in the win, her 7th of the season in the first half to tie the game at 1-1 after Stroudsburg had taken a 1-0 lead with a score off a penalty corner midway through the half.
Senior goalie Claire Nielsen gave up her first goal of the season in the opening half but was solid in the cage in the second half keeping Stroudsburg off the board.
Emmaus will be back in action on Thursday at home at Memorial Field as they host East Stroudsburg South at 6:30 p.m.

Coach Butz-Stavin - "For the most part, I've been pleased with the first two weeks of preseason workouts. Collectively we need to mature a little bit better and make adjustments on the field to recognize situations and make better decisions . We need to do that a little bit quicker and I think day by day we're getting better, but we want the kids to think for themselves out on the field."
"When we are in the defensive mode, the kids thave to check off and find their marks really quick and defend the lines. We also have to use both the width and depth in all directions. There are a lot of little details and I just want to make sure that we are prepared for all different situations throughout the season."
"We have great depth with this team and I'm really happy with our freshmen group. They're athletic and field hockey-minded and they are going to push the sophomores from last year."
"We also have a wonderful coaching staff. Laree Beans (former assistant) is back on with us and it's great to have her back. Kristin's main focus is the goalies and Allison is our JV coach. We have coaches with field hockey backgrounds and knowledge and they're a great asset to the team."
