Field Hockey Wins Four Straight

Since last issue the Plymouth State University field hockey team has caught fire and played exceptionally well, winning four straight games with a combined score of 24-3. The Panthers are led by leading scorer Nicole Burgess (Mexico, ME) who has eight goals and three assists for a total of 19 points. Junior Katie Martin (Waterbury Ctr. VT) has 14 points this season off of five goals and four assists.

The Panthers had their "home" opener at the Holderness School against Framingham State; a game they took by a 9-0 score. The game saw four different Panther goal scorers in Burgess (3), Kaitlyn Wilder (Framingham, MA) (2), Kendal Lariviere (Dover, NH) (2), and picking up her first goals as a Panther freshman Maddie Kabasakalian (Kent, CT) (2). The Panthers would next travel to Castleton University to face the Spartans. Again, they would hold the opposition off the scoreboard and pick up eight goals of their own. Three from Martin, two from Burgess, one from Wilder, and then one a piece from Kate McPherson (Conway, NH) and Patty Newhard (South Dennis, MA). Next up was a conference stop against the Bears of Bridgewater State. This game proved to be much closer than the previous two and even saw the Bears strike first. However, Plymouth would rebound thanks to scores from Burgess and Lily Davis (Boscawen, NH). The Bears would get the tying goal before the Panthers would get three unanswered goals from Wilder, Lariviere and Kaihley Rafferty (Salem, CT) to pick up the 5-2 win. The Panthers would then play another tough conference road game against the Southern Maine Huskies. The game was tightly fought throughout with the Panthers getting two goals in the first half from Burgess and Martin. They would be the only goals the Panthers could get and Southern Maine would play hard in the second half but not be able to take the lead as the Panthers held on to a 2-1 victory.

Team captain Maddy Beatrice is exceptionally pleased with the teams play on the current four game winning streak.

“In the games we have lost we played as individuals rather than a team.” Beatrice said. “We have finally come together and our chemistry is stronger than ever.”

The Panthers next game is a home contest for homecoming weekend on Saturday at the New Hampton School.
