The Beacon field hockey squad took home a 2-0 victory after facing tough competition from district rival Mariner Nov. 4.
Beacon eighth-grader Carrie Clausius scored one goal in the first half off an assist from Lindsay D’Ambrogi and added an insurance goal in the second from Alexi Nowakowski.
“We’ve got 15 eighth-graders on the Beacon team,” said coach Kay Miller. “In the past three years, they’ve come so far. They have really gelled as a team. Hannah [Pepper] has done a great job with the Mariner team. I’m looking forward to both teams coming together at Cape next year. I think it’s going to be a wonderful group of girls, not just talented, but just a nice bunch of girls.”
Beacon finishes the season at 9-2.
“We’ve improved a lot since the beginning of the season,” said Mariner coach Hannah Pepper. “They have a lot of heart and passion for the game. The team has quite a few underclassmen that will help with the future of Mariner hockey. I’m excited to see what that future holds.”
The Mariner squad is 4-5-1 with one game remaining Wednesday, Nov. 6.
