Field Hockey Roundup – 9/26
What Happened Yesterday
Molly Martin’s hat trick helped lift Williamsville North over Clarence in a 4-1 decision.
That result shook up the ECIC standings – moving Williamsville North (7-1 in ECIC) to #2 (from #3) and gave Williamsville East (7-1 in ECIC, won head-to-head vs North) the top spot (from #2).
Clarence dropped to third place. However, the Red Devils’ record currently sits at 7-1, which affords them the opportunity to catch both teams record-wise with their extra game yet to be played.
Lancaster, who currently sits at #4, is 6-1 in ECIC and has yet to play any team leading them in the standings. After their 4-0 win over Starpoint yesterday they’re now on a 6-game winning streak. They’ll have a chance to leapfrog teams in October if they can continue their recent success.
The Lady Legends’ goals yesterday were scored by Morganne Dee (2), Karley Callea and Lexi Odrobina (+1 assist). Paige Bukaty, Tiffany Andres and Olivia Ringle had the assists.
Pioneer improved to 5-3 on the year after a 6-0 win over Holland.
Olivia Kempf scored a hat trick + 1. Morgan McAfee (+1 assist) and Mykala Furman (+2 assists) also added goals. Alyssa Roblee had an assist.
Iroquois currently sits at 7-2 after a 5-0 win over East Aurora.
Five different Lady Chiefs scored yesterday.. Ashley Pitz, Madison Schoenle, Jayden D’Angelo, Jillian Quinn and Quinn Wierzbowski (+1 assist).
Elizabeth Fonfara and Madison Kasten both had assists.
Sara Puskar scored the lone Quaker goal (assisted by Grace Schmelzinger) to give Orchard Park a 1-0 win over Williamsville South.
Williamsville East earned a 3-2 victory over Amherst thanks to Courtney Maclay’s game-winning goal with 13 minutes left in the game. Jenna Cavalieri and Laura Kaplan also scored unassisted goals for the Lady Flames.
Bridget Galvin and Isabella Bonvissuto scored for the Lady Tigers with assists from Katherine Jacobia and Jill Martin respectively.
Brielle Brodnicki kicked off the scoring for Sweet Home to give her team a 1-goal lead going into halftime. Eden‘s Lydia Kobie (assisted by Sabrina Battleson) evened the score with 11:34 remaining in the game, which would ultimately force an overtime.
Kobie and Battleson again teamed up to notch the game-winner, Kobie’s eighth goal of the season, to give their team a 2-1 win.
Hamburg‘s Emily LoBello and Maeve Robillard each scored a pair of goals in the Lady Bulldogs’ 4-1 win over West Seneca.
