After a 40-minute lightning delay just 12 minutes into the game, goals from Taylor Bender and Bre White propelled the Shippensburg University field hockey team to a 3-0 win over the top-ranked West Chester University Golden Rams. After the lightning delay, the game resumed, and nine minutes later, Bender got the Raiders on the board when she connected with the back of the cage with an assist from Sam Langone, who caught the rebound in front of the cage off a missed strike from Bre White. Bender would score again in the start of the second half, her fourth of the season, with an unassisted goal.
