Girls Varsity Field Hockey: Brunswick lost its game to Cony 5-1. Brunswick’s 1st half goal was off a last minute corner time at goal by #12 Shea Sullivan, assisted by #11 Kristen Hummer. Brunswick takes on Hampden Academy at home Saturday, September 29, at 1:00.
Girls JV Field Hockey: On Thursday, the JV Field Hockey team lost to Cony 0-3 in a great matchup. Brunswick adjusted to the 7 on 7 matchup, and played its small passing game working together both on offense and defense. The forward line of Julia Pols, Delia Braillard, Anna Barnes and Kelsey Sullivan worked well to move the ball up the field, but just couldn’t get the ball past the Cony goalie. At the end of the first half the score was 0-1 Cony. Sara Coughlin, Caroline White and Brianna Campbell had strong defensive games with some
great stick stops and recovers. Liberty Krauss was in goal the first half with 8 saves and Ainsley Harrower was in goal the second half with 5 saves, both doing a job. The score doesn’t reflect it, but the Brunswick Dragons played a strong all-around game. Come support your field hockey teams on Saturday as they host Hampden Academy for Homecoming weekend!
