Varsity Field Hockey vs. New Trier - 8.30.17
The game started off very exciting with LFA's very own sophomore Margaret Waldman ‘20 scoring the first goal of the game (and her first of the season!) from a pass by Suzie Newton ‘18. Our defensive corner unit, consisting of Annie Gifford ‘20, Kiki Hood ‘19, Izzy Moody ‘18, and Lena Ansari ‘19, shut down New Trier's 4 offensive corner opportunities in the first half, leaving LFA up 1-0 at the end of the half.
The second half started out strong with LFA being awarded 2 offensive corner opportunities. Unfortunately, we were unable to finish. New Trier was able to put one past our keeper halfway through the second half to tie the game 1-1. Again, our defensive corner unit was a force to be reckoned with, shutting New Trier down 5 times to keep the score 1-1 to the end of the second half.
In the first overtime session, Lena Ansari scored the first goal unassisted. She was able to capitalize on New Trier failing to get the ball out of the circle by taking the ball baseline and shooting it to the far post. Unfortunately, New Trier came back one minute later and scored to tie the game 2-2.
In the second sudden death overtime period, New Trier scored the winning goal.
The final score was 2-3 in favor of New Trier. We are very proud of how hard the team worked during the game.
