August 20, 2019


SUNDAY, CLOUDY WITH A BETTER CHANCE OF SHOWERS. STEVE: THE SECOND DAY OF REGIONAL QUARTERFINALS IN FIELD HOCKEY TAKING PLACE AT SITES ACROSS THE STATE. IN SCARBOROUGH, DEFENDING CLASS A CHAMPS HOSTED FALMOUTH. SHOTS TOUGH TO COME BY FOR MOST OF THE GAME, AND WHEN THEY DID SCARBOROUGH’S ALYSSA SOUZA AND FALMOUTH’S ELIZABETH AMADEI WERE STRONG IN THE CAGE. IN THE END, SCARBOROUGH’S RACHAEL PARADIS WOULD SNEAK ONE IN WITH JUST 18 SECONDS LEFT IN REGULATION FOR THE 1-0 RED STORM WIN. STAYING IN SOUTHERN ‘C’, WE HAVE THORNTON ACADEMY AND MARSHWOOD. 1-1 GAME IN THE SECOND HALF — THAT’S THORNTON ACADEMY WITH PRESSURE ON NET — BUT THE TROJANS CANT PUSH IT PAST SHANNON GILBIN. LESS THAN TWO MINUTES LEFT IN THE GAME, THE TROJANS WITH MORE PRESSURE AND THIS TIME ABBY POMERLEAU FINDS THE THE BACK OF THE CAGE. THORNTON ACADEMY HOLDS ON FOR THE 2-1 WIN, ADVANCING ON TO MEET SCARBOROUGH ON SATURDAY.
