Appalachian State University field hockey picked up its first win of the 2012 season, defeating Saint Louis, 3-2. The Apps took a quick 1-0 lead over the Billikens when freshman Caroline Phillips scored her first career goal off a pass

from sophomore Jessi Stuart. Phillips found the back of the net when she received a pass on the left side and shot into the top right corner of the cage.
The Black and Gold took the 2-0 advantage over Saint Louis when Phillips fed senior Casey Lammando a pass from the middle off a penalty corner and Lammando scored on a shot from the left side of the circle. Appalachian capitalized on their second penalty corner of the afternoon when Phillips passed to sophomore Dana Wetmore on the left side of the circle. Wetmore netted her first goal of the season, allowing the Mountaineers to take a commanding 3-0 lead.
Saint Louis scored its first goal of the match late in the first half coming within two of Appalachian.
