6. Field Hockey: In a game full of suspense, drama and cheers, our girls field hockey team captured the provincial field hockey championship on Thursday. Our team cruised to the final game with a 10-0 record and recorded 35 goals for and 0 goals against in our regular season and semi- final game. The girls were confident going into the final game but quickly realized Montague was not going to hand the game to us. We had two excellent scoring chances in the first 5 minutes of the game but the Montague team got lucky as two attempts hit the post! The Tigers played at a frenzied pace but Montague took advantage of a penalty corner to score the first goal and went into half time with a 1-0 lead. The second half looked alot like the first with both teams having their chances to score. After a time out was called with 15 minutes to go, the Tigers turned into the offensive force they had been all year. After several attempts on the goal, Sarah Steele took a pass from Abbey MacLellan and buried the ball in the back of the net with 8 minutes remaining. The goal proved to be the spark our team needed as we kept the pressure in Montague’s end of the field. With two minutes remaining, Abbey MacLellan put on a show and scored the game winner and one of the nicest goals our coaching staff has witnessed at the Jr. High level. Abbey took a pass at the 50 yard line and made her way down the field embarrassing the Montague players with her skill. She finished her drive with the game winner. The team protected the lead in the final 2 minutes by clearing the ball down the field and controlling the play. Sarah Steele was named a tournament all-star and Abbey MacLellan was named the tournament MVP. The team was so successful this year because of our strength at every position on the field and in large part to our graduating players. Jacklyn MacKinnon allowed only one goal against in our 11 game season and this was her first year in the net. The defensive pairing of Molly Cox and Abbey Hurley was solid every game as they helped Jacklyn keep the ball out of our end. Our mid field line of Kathleen Bergin, Madi Delaney and Karleigh McEwen improved every game and provided the offence with great passes and controlled the flow of the game. Maddy Koughan, Sarah Steele and Abbey MacLellan were scoring machines as they combined for 28 of out teams 35 goals. The future looks bright as returning players Amelia Jenkins, Meghan Kiley, Mackenzie Koughan, Charlee Holden, Sophie Carragher, Ashley Fitzpatrick, Ailish Bergin and rookie sensation Emma Campbell remain to defend our title next year. Mrs. Steele, Mme. Walsh and Mme. Holmes can’t contain their pride and excitement at their teams accomplishments! Well done.
