On Monday, September 17, the Westford Academy Girls’ Varsity Field Hockey team lost to Acton-Boxborough Regional High School with a score of 0-2. Although they were not victorious, Coach Sherry Fisher commended the team on a job well done.

“The girls played very well. AB is a very aggressive team, they usually do very well […] I thought we put up a good fight,” Fisher said.

During the first half, the majority of the plays were made on WA’s side of the field, but the girls displayed a very strong defense against AB’s offensive plays.  Players such as seniors Olivia Vallone, Morgan Freud, and Leyla Singh made significant defensive plays.

AB scored the first goal of the game about fifteen minutes into the half. They got past WA’s defense one more time and scored a second goal with a mere twenty seconds left before halftime.

By halftime, the score was 0-2, with AB in the lead.

During the second half, WA had an even stronger defense, especially seen by senior Morgan Freud. Junior goalie Grace O’Sullivan made numerous saves as well. For the whole half, WA did not let a single scoring attempt by AB slip.

Towards the end of the second half, WA became a little more offensive, and moved towards AB’s side of the field. There were a couple scoring attempts, and the girls almost scored a goal at one moment. Neither team scored during the second half, resulting in a 0-2 win for AB.

“Our defense was incredible today, and I thought we had a couple [scoring] opportunities, which I was happy about, and the girls were aggressive overall. I was happy. It was a good game,” Fisher said.

Senior Leyla Singh strikes the ball away from AB.
