The Bourne High field hockey team remained undefeated, but lost out on a chance to pick up a victory with just over five minutes to play. Wareham’s Joe Canto scored with 5:05 remaining to give the Vikings a 1-1 draw against the Canalmen in Wareham on Wednesday, September 18.
BHS played with the lead for most of the game. Hannah Greened tipped in a shot by Julie Elicier about six minutes into the contest to put her team ahead. With Serena Tura and Taylor McCarthy giving strong efforts, Bourne stayed out front for the majority of the game, but were unable to hold onto the lead.
The team is now 3-0-2 overall on the season
Bourne’s strong start to the season continued last Friday, September 13, as the Lady Canalmen did something they had not done in some time. They defeated Seekonk High School.
BHS moved to 3-0-1 with a 1-0 win over the Warriors, thanks to a huge play by junior captain Julia Elicier. Off a nice feed from Emily Strojny, Elicier was able to put in a well-placed shot that was the lone goal of the game. The winner came with just 4:06 left on the clock in the second half.
A stalwart defense was key for the Lady Canalmen. BHS kept the Warriors off the play for big parts of second half, with seniors Taylor McCarthy and Phoebe Medeiros’s playing pivotal roles in Bourne’s win. Sophie Stowe had good control in the midfield before going down with an ankle injury with eight minutes left in game. Mary Schmitt and JJ Rodrigues stepped in and kept pressure on for Bourne.
Bourne goalie Elizabeth Black made several keys saves to keep Seekonk off the board.
