Field Hockey Falls to Atholton in Playoffs

Words: Paul Drutch

Centennial’s field hockey season has unfortunately come to an end after a defeat to Atholton on Thursday, October 29.  The game was a battle for possession, with impressive attacking plays from senior Vicky De Sande and junior Olivia O’Connell.  

Centennial’s defense had many important plays, including goal line clearances from juniors Bella Brillante and Charlotte DeCarlo. Centennial’s progress from earlier in the year was very apparent, only losing 1-0 as opposed to 9-0 earlier in the season.

Atholton scored in the last minutes of the first half. Perhaps one of the best performances of the year came from junior Jennifer Dietrich, Centennial’s goalie. Dietrich had double digit saves by the end of the game, and multiple blocks.  

The season has come to an end, but the improvement was noticed by all players and spectators.
