Yesterday afternoon, the 8th grade field hockey team defeated Patton by a score of 3-0. Kennett goals were scored by Lucy Myers, Raina Bickel, and Megan Ward. The front line of Lili Lusvardi, Bridget Wells, Ava Gavin, Norah Peterson, and Sam Bevard kept the pressure on Patton throughout the game. Sarah Burns, Jordyn MacMillan, Britney Sedano, and Norah Wolff controlled the middle of the field. The defense of Elizabeth Calhoun, Kaitlyn Stolp, Molly Kaplan, Isabelle Scopio, and Hayley Holder limited Patton to 3 shots on goal. The Goal Keepers, Georgia Fay and Maddi Sears kept Patton off the board to preserve the shutout. Way to go Kennett!
