Hayley Rausch, field hockey
Hayley recorded a goal and an assist in both of UNH’s victories last week against Harvard University (3-1) and Holy Cross (5-1) to help the Wildcats improve to 6-2 overall, which is the team’s best start since the 1999 team also won six of eight.
The junior forward gave New Hampshire a 1-0 lead vs. Harvard when she one-timed a pass from Whitney Frates into the cage in the 15th minute. She was credited with an assist when the ‘Cats converted a penalty corner into a goal to take a 3-1 lead in the 53rd minute.
Hayley once again struck first in the game vs. Holy Cross to give UNH a 1-0 lead at 10:50, and she assisted on the team’s fourth goal of the game at 58:58.
Hayley leads the team in both assists (five) and points (13), and she is tied for the team lead in goals (four). She also ranks second in shots (26). Hayley has recorded a point in five of eight games and has scored a goal each of the last three games.

It was Terrance’s third catch of the drive; he also had receptions of 6 and 10 yards on consecutive plays. And his 16-yard punt return gave the ‘Cats possession at the URI 44 yard-line to give New Hampshire good field position.
In the fourth quarter, Terrance’s 21-yard scoring play put the Wildcats back in front, 25-21, with 6:56 to play.
