Villa Maria field hockey defeated Gwynedd Mercy 9-0 on Thursday, September 7. Five Hurricanes scored goals in the game: Erin Finley had three; Hannah Miller and Erin Zielinski had two each; and Meghan Dillon and Lindsay Dickinson scored one apiece.
Villa Maria Field Hockey opened their season on the road on Friday, September 1 against Downingtown West. It was a tough battle, ending in a 4-3 loss to the top-ranked pre-season AAA team.
Daan Polders, Villa’s coach, commented, “Villa played too hesitant while making too many mistakes in the beginning. Villa scored and even tied the game after some changes… After a Villa goal was called back, Downingtown West scored the 3-2 and 4-2, while Villa was sloppy. Villa got close … but did not capitalize on some opportunities.”
