The “Pinked Out” 8th grade Field Hockey team finished off their unbeaten season defeating Upland by a score of 3-0. The Demons got off to a slow start but the offense was able to get on the board when Raina Bickel received a pass by Lucy Myers and was able to find the back of the goal. The offense of Bridget Wells, Norah Peterson, Ava Gavin, Sam Bevard, and Lili Lusvardi continued the pressure on the Upland defense when Megan Ward was able to sneak the ball past the goalie to give Kennett a two goal advantage. Jordyn MacMillan added the third goal of the game with a blast off of a penalty corner. Upland tried their best to get on the board, but had a difficult time getting past the mid field of MacMillan, Sarah Burns, Britney Sedano, and Norah Wolff. The defense of Elizabeth Calhoun, Kaitlyn Stolp, Hayley Holder, Isabelle Scopio, and Molly Kaplan limited the shots on Goal Keeper Maddi Sears assisting her with another shutout. Congratulations on an impressive season.
