Goalie Deyanna Foley had a great game and made a total of eight saves. This tie gave The Fisherman the point they needed to get into the tournament.

Monday night, The Fishermen crushed the  Revere Patriots with a 6-0 win.  Chloe Flavin, Rachel Alexander, Nicole Tocco, and Liana Hendershott each scored goals, and senior Kayla Nasser scored two goals.

Gloucester with it’s record of 9-6-4 , has achieved just that. Their final game on Saturday gives field hockey the opportunity to improve their standings.
