Field Hockey with mighty win against Marblehead

The Gloucester Field Hockey team put a spell on the Marblehead Magicians on October 11th, with the big score of 9-0.

Lily Pregent had a hat trick, with Anna Cinelli and Captain Abby Lowthers behind her with two goals each. Sophomore Eliana Parsons scored her first varsity goal along with Talia Harrington scoring her fourth. Harrington, Lowthers, and Cinelli, along with captains Ari Scola and Ella Costa, were credited with assists on the nine goals. 

The team was strong on both offense and defense throughout the whole game, something they sought to work on before Marblehead. Captains Ella Costa and Ari Scola were machines up on the offensive end while Joie Cody, Lexi Carollo, and Bella Goulart locked down on defensive midfield. Anna Hafey and Jordan Palk were solid on defense for their sophomore goalie Keagan Jewell. Jewell saved the few shots that got through, including a layout save across the goal. 

Cinelli, Pregent, and Lowthers were very aggressive on the line, in which them and the offensive midfielders racked up more than 30 shots on Marblehead. Throughout the game, they pushed the Marblehead team with sniper shots and penalty corners.

Costa got a penalty during the game for “intentional bodying” of a Marblehead player. The referees, at one point, stopped the game to yell at the Fishermen to stop telling them what to do or call. There was lots of bodying during this game, and it is something the girls look to work on before the postseason. 

In the last quarter, the second line got a taste of varsity play. Freshman Olivia Madruga had good drives in the midfield, along with Maddie Jewell and Isla Black. Ivanna Ferrara, Emma Carrapichosa, Ashlyn Orlando, and Katy Aaron protected the net on defense/defensive mid. 

“I was really proud of the way the team played tonight,” Coach Lauren Riley-Gove said post-game. “They were able to communicate and move the ball playing positional hockey. Everyone got to work on things that needed adjusting. I was very proud of the team work! The forward line, they did great. The passing  game was tremendous and the 100 percent effort to finish. Awesome chemistry. Also proud of the second line today. They played as a unit and really worked well together. Great effort all around.”

The Fishermen are now 8-2-2 on the season. The girls, looking for a big win, play in Malden Catholic on Thursday evening
