The past two games for the Avenger Field Hockey team were a study in contrasts. The first game (the photos here are from this game) on Friday (9/9), was against South Kingstown, which just moved up to Division 1 and it showed. EG rolled over their opponents in a 9-0 rout.
On Monday, they played at Barrington and lost, 2-1.
“It’s always tough playing a very skilled and well coached Barrington on their home grass field,” said Coach Deb McMullen. The Eagles scored first, in the second quarter. The Avengers answered with Alex Mega scoring off a well-executed corner from Margaret Neville. Barrington was able to break the tie with a break away goal in the fourth quarter.
