BF stickers go to 6-0 with sixth shutout
WOODSTOCK -- The Bellows Falls varsity field hockey team is on a roll this year. The Terriers remain unbeaten, pulling off their sixth victory of the season against Woodstock, 2-0, Monday night.
What’s even more amazing, is the fact that the team hasn’t had a goal scored on them all season.
"Six shoutouts in a row feels incredible," said Bellows Falls coach Bethany Coursen. "I believe it’s a school record."
Five minutes into play, Mariah Barnett and Sarah Wells managed a pass to Averie Lowe, who whacked in the Terriers’ first goal. "It’s a drill we practice," said the coach.
Cassidy Santorelli put away the Terriers’ second goal 40 seconds later, assisted again by Wells.
Shea Wilkinson, the Bellows Falls goalie, blocked one high shot and made a diving save.
Wells took a hard hit and came out of the game, but Molly Dufault came off the the bench to fill in and performed well, according to Coursen.
Bellows Falls will play at Springfield on Friday at 4 p.m.
