Big second half lifts Shanahan
NETHER PROVIDENCE >> There was a point during her team’s 3-1 victory over Strath Haven in the second round of the District 1 Class 2A field hockey playoffs Wednesday afternoon that Bishop Shanahan coach Nancy Roselli wondered if the Eagles were ever going to score.
Seniors Emma Velez and Paige Plevyak also were unsure if the 10th-seeded Eagles were going to ever solve the mystery that was Strath Haven goalie Gillian Gunn.
“She was very good,” Roselli said.
Gunn was brilliant, and one of the reasons the seventh-seeded Panthers (12-7) had a 1-0 halftime lead. The senior stopped 14 shots in the first half and finished with 29 saves.
