Pound for pound, one great battle is the title of the article written by Steve Virgen from the LATimes. The article, posted in the Daily Pilot, featured the field hockey game played on Tuesday. It was a very intense game. Rival teams, Newport for us is the team to beat.
Our Varsity coach, Kathy Van Doornum, is not a coach that is out there screaming directions to the girls. No, she is one who does a great job at teaching them the game during practices. By the time they're on the playing field, they know what to do and where to be. Rarely does she talk from the line. But this game, she couldn't hold back her excitement as to how great we hung in with Newport.
l was standing across the field by Newport's goalie. Most of the game was shot at a very long distance. In this photo you can see just how much the girls got in the game. Our goalie watching intensely, five on five. In the background is a scout/recruiter for a college. And you can see that the referee is calling for a penalty corner. Never was sure as to how we fouled. I can't see an obstruction and never have gotten clear on all the calls. (even after four years!)
Next is Brooke who shot in the winning goal.
The last photo clearly shows how exciting it is to win against Newport-Harbor. They are a great team and so is H.B.! We'll be happy to take away their title.
