Tigers can’t overcome two early goals in field hockey loss
Rising Sun allowed two goals in the first ten minutes of its Chesapeake Division field hockey game against visiting C. Milton Wright Friday.
While the Mustangs controlled possession for the remainder of the game and created several scoring chances, the Tigers defense stiffened and did not allow a goal the rest of the way in a 2-0 loss.
“We had a lot practice with that throughout the season. I think they made up their minds after they got scored on with those two goals that they didn’t want that to happen again,” Rising Sun coach Katie Keyes said.
“They wanted to fight and show C. Milton Wright that Rising Sun is a contender.”
The Mustangs (7-2 overall, 3-1 division) took the lead in the fourth minute when Annie Keel deposited a Georgia Beachley pass into the back of the cage to make it 1-0. A couple minutes later, C.M. Wright doubled its lead when Taylor Marchetti scored off an assist by Samantha Aljets.
“There are definitely some mechanical things that we have talked to specific players about, but honestly, in comparison to the [loss] we had yesterday, our team played a lot better,” Keyes said. “They put in a lot of effort, and they wanted to win and cared a lot.” The Tigers fall to 2-5 overall and 0-3 in the upper division.
