BF stickers improve to 11-0
WESTMINSTER >> Abbe Cravinho and Reaghan Baldasaro each tallied twice as the Bellows Falls varsity field hockey team trumped MAU, 6-0.
"My two goalies did not touch the ball thanks to the hard work of my links and halfbacks," said BF coach Bethany Coursen, whose team took 16 total shots on goal and had an 8-1 advantage in penalty corners.
Madison Streeter and Dani Marchica each scored once for the winners, who took a 2-0 lead to the intermission. Leia Robinson set one burial up.
The 11-0 Terriers will host Otter Valley on Saturday at 11 a.m.
WILMINGTON >> Kassidy Walkowiak scored and Celia Betit recorded her first career shutout when Twin Valley topped Windsor, 1-0.
"Twin Valley played some inspired ball after an emotional five days away from the pitch. We possessed the ball well, strung several combinations together and defended very well as a unit to limit any Windsor chances," noted Wildcats coach Chris Walling.
Windsor fell to 1-10 overall. Twin Valley (4-6-1) will host Bellows Falls for Senior Night on Friday.
SPRINGFIELD >> Timmy Salter-Roy finished third in 18:00 to lead the Bellows Falls boys to a gold medal with 38 points. Ian Wallace took fifth in 18:22, Jackson Purdy placed eighth in 18:45, Cam Joy wound up 10th in 19:28 and Nic Potter ended up 12th in 19:58 to round out BF's top five. Otter Valley (76 points), Thetford (90) and Springfield (130) also figured into the team scoring.
