CROSS RIVER, N.Y. – John Jay’s field hockey squad battled to a 1-1 tie with host Nanuet on Sept. 12.

The Indians’ lone goal was from Faye Tobin while goaltender Samantha Spieler stopped three shots.

“The conditions did not work in our favor today,” John Jay coach Debbi Walsh said. “We are not accustomed to playing on wet grass and moving the ball proved quite difficult. The girls worked very hard to find ways to pass the ball and our defense was able to limit their shots on goal and hold them to five corners.”
