Redgrove Scores, Field Hockey Tripped Up
DURHAM, N.H. – Opening the final weekend of the regular season in the America East, Stanford field hocked was defeated in close contest to New Hampshire, 3-1, on Friday afternoon. The Cardinal moves to 3-8 on the season, and 2-5 in America East play.

New Hampshire was able to regain its advantage later in the quarter, and take a 2-1 lead into the intermission.
