The Sandwich Blue Knight field hockey team continued their tear through the Atlantic Coast League with a 6-0 blowout of Plymouth South on Wednesday.
Nicole Martin was more than the Panthers could handle as she slammed South with four goals, while at the other end of the field goalie Anna Hurley posted her seventh shutout of the season.
Once again the defense was solid for the Knights. Maggie Layo and Ally Hir rounded out the scoring attack for Sandwich (7-0-2, 5-0-1 ACL).
Sandwich edged Falmouth by a score of 1-0 on Monday, with the lone goal of the game, off a corner. Nicole Martin’s shot, assisted by Layo eluded Falmouth goalie Mary Negri in the 20th minute of the game. For Blue Knights goalie Anna Hurley it was her sixth shutout victory of the season.
Friday the Lady Knights handed Nantucket their first loss of the season on Friday shutting out the Whalers 5-0. Claire Gauthier, Mallory Whalen, HIr, Katie Payne and Martin each tallied in the win.
