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.
