MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. - Carly Kissinger scored the game's lone goal midway through the first half on Sunday as Saint Louis downed Central Michigan, 1-0, in a nonconference field hockey game at the CMU Field Hockey Complex.
The Chippewas (0-6) are scheduled to play host to Yale on Friday, Sept. 15 at 3 p.m. at the CMU Field Hockey Complex.
"We had multiple opportunities that we just couldn't capitalize on," CMU coach Molly Pelowski said. "We'll just continue to work on what we need to improve on and get our mind set on Yale.
"Wins are hard to come by. Saint Louis had to earn their win, and we are going to work hard to earn our win."
CMU goalkeeper Lily Amadio recorded seven saves on the day to put her at a total of 45 on the season.
The plan for the day was to be competitive and win the 50/50 balls, Pelowski said, adding that the Chippewas did that, but inconsistent play ultimately proved costly.
"We just have to get more consistent with the things that we do," Pelowski said. "When we play Chippewa hockey, and we do it all the time, we'll get better."
