Gloucester field hockey loses to Central Catholic

On a chilly Monday morning, the Gloucester Fishermen field hockey team could not pull out a win against Central Catholic, an opponent from Lawrence.

Captain Abby Lowthers scored the only goal for the Fishermen in their 1-3 loss. Despite many shots on goal from Anna Cinelli, Lily Pregent, Captain Ella Costa, and Captain Ari Scola, the girls couldn’t rack up enough goals to beat their opponents.

Joie Cody was a force for the Fisherman, coming in with many blocks and saves. Bella Goulart and Anna Hafey had  drives and blocks around Gloucester’s side of the field. Jordan Palk also had a standout game at defense. Sophomore goalie Keagan Jewell made important saves at the net, including 4-6 shots she saved consecutively from her knees. 

Central Catholic struck first, but the Fisherman tied the game up midway through the third quarter. The Fishermen were facing not only a strong forward line from the Raiders, but also harsh referees. Many of the penalties throughout the game were by Gloucester. Referees accused the team of tripping and intentional pushing, which Gloucester took issue with. 

With 2 goals from the Raiders in the last quarter, the Fishermen could not bounce back for either a tie or a win. “The team played really great [and] smart hockey today.” Head coach Lauren Riley-Gove said. “The girls had some really great ball movement, passing, [and] defense. They played well. Unfortunately, the score does not show the effort that was put out there. We really need to capitalize on our opportunities, buckle down, [and] play a full 60 minutes of disciplined hockey every game moving forward.”

The girls move to 7-2-2 after the hard loss. They look to sharpen up and win their game in Marblehead on Wednesday.
