Team USA falls in Olympic Field Hockey quarterfinals

The U.S women’s field hockey team’s run at the Summer Olympics in Rio is over

Team USA was eliminated in the quarterfinals, edged by Germany 2-1 Monday.

Delawarean Katelyn Falgowski scored the only U.S. goal in the loss.

The team - which also includes Delaware’s Caitlin Van Sickle – had hoped to make a run at its first Olympic medal since 1984.

Team USA finishes the Olympic tournament with a 4-2 record, a much better showing than four years ago when they finished last in a 12 team field.
