Varsity field hockey closes out with two wins to end the season


Going into the last three games of the season, the girls’ varsity field hockey team had a three game losing streak and the streak extended to four losses in a row after a 1-0 loss against Clarksburg High School on October 13 on our home turf. The team was not on the right track going into the first round of the playoffs, until they were able to win their last two games of the season. They ended up beating Albert Einstein High School 6-0 on October 16 at Einstein and Montgomery Blair High School 3-0 at Blair on October 18.

Senior defender and captain Josie Laing gave a season review as well as how the team was able to win against Blair.

“From the beginning of the season we have gotten a lot better at reading the field and playing together, which helped us win our last regular season game against Blair,” Laing said.

During the game against Blair, Laing scored two goals off of corners and played an extremely solid defense.

Senior goalkeeper Toni Koroye highlighted the team’s great performance against Einstein after they won 6-0.

“Our offense played amazing, they got a lot of shots on goal and were able to finish very well. On top of that, our defense was very solid which made our jobs as goalies very easy,” Koroye said.

Koroye saved the shots that Einstein did to get on goal and the other goal tenders played perfectly as well.

It was not looking good for the team as they were headed into their last three games of the regular season with a four game losing streak, but they were able to pull off two wins in a row.
