Kingston High takes on de­fend­ing champ Ron­d­out Val­ley for the Mid-Hud­son Ath­letic League field hockey ti­tle.

Ron­d­out Val­ley looks for a three-peat in Mid-Hud­son Ath­letic League field hockey Thurs­day, but to ac­com­plish that, the Gan­ders will have to get by Kingston High.

Both teams ad­vanced to Thurs­day’s 4 p.m. fi­nal in Red Hook with semi­fi­nal vic­to­ries Tues­day. Ron­d­out beat Pine Bush, 2-0, while Kingston knocked off We­bu­tuck, 7-1. Ron­d­out 2, Pine Bush 0

Makay­lah Mutz scored off a Toni Hamil­ton pass 4:46 into the match to put Ron­d­out in con­trol of its semi­fi­nal at SUNY New Paltz. Sasha Strat­ton added an in­surance goal with 7:41 re­main­ing.

The Gan­ders dom­i­nated the play against a tough (8-2-2) Pine Bush team. Ron­d­out out­shot the Lady Bush­men 13-4 and to­taled 10 penalty cor­ners to Pine Bush’s three.

Court­ney Smith made three saves in goal to earn the shutout for (10-2-3) Ron­d­out. Erin Van­der­mark had 10 saves for Pine Bush.

Along with de­fend­ing its ti­tle, Ron­d­out is look­ing to avenge a 2-1 loss to Kingston three weeks ago. Kingston 7, We­bu­tuck 1

At Kingston, Meghan Gavis and Rieley Fitzger­ald each had two goals and an as­sist, Syd­ney Bonewit scored twice and Brooke Gastin added a goal and two as­sists to lead the Tigers in their

semi­fi­nal at Di­etz Sta­dium.

Grace Gavis and An­gela Van Pelt also had as­sists for the Tigers, who are now 12-0-1 over­all.

Al­though Kingston had only one penalty corner, it out­shot the War­riors 231. We­bu­tuck made good on its only shot, scor­ing on Lea­hana Rec­chia’s at­tempt.

Abby Brocco and Jurnee Black­wood shared duty in goal for Kingston. We­bu­tuck goal­keeper Makayla Mi­lano had six saves.

The Tigers are look­ing for their first league ti­tle since 2013.
