Second half surge propels BBA
MANCHESTER — The Burr and Burton field hockey team scored all of its goals in the second half as they defeated Springfield, 4-0.
Four different players found the back of the cage and Hannah Hedberg had three assists.
BBA opened the scoring three minutes into the half with a goal by Nelly Hollweg, assisted by Brianna Mayne and Hedberg. Six minutes later, Charleigh Carthy scored off a feed from Hedberg. BBA added the final two goals in the last 10 minutes, the first from Mayne, assisted by Chloe MacDonald and Evangeline Morrison. The second came from Celsey McMahon, assisted by Hedberg.
BBA's Hannah Callen didn't have to make any saves, while Springfield's Anna Church had 10 stops.
"Our team bounced back from our loss on Monday and dominated the game from the opening whistle. However, a tough Cosmos defense and goalie combined with a few swings in the circle from our offense left us scoreless at the half. In the second half, we were able to convert on the opportunities we had in the circle," said BBA coach Barb Miceli. "I would commend the play of Charleigh Carthy at midfield — she did a great job of helping to cover on defense and continued to push the ball up the field on offense. We also had very strong games from Julia Fillion and Brianna Mayne on the front line."
The Bulldogs are 2-2-1 and host Hartford on Saturday.
