Pats defeat Rocky Hill, tie Lincoln School
The Pilgrim field hockey team produced a pair of strong showings last week, defeating Rocky Hill, 1-0, on Thursday, before earning a 1-1 tie against Lincoln School on Friday afternoon.
The Pats pulled off a victory late over Rocky Hill. With under a minute remaining, Pilgrim earned a penalty corner, and Olivia Paquet would finish off a chance in front off a pass from Trinity Reilly for the game-winning goal.
Sara Langevin earned the shutout in goal, stopping all five Rocky Hill shots.
Lindsey Fontes was then outstanding in goal for the Pats on Friday to help her team earn a point against Lincoln School (8-2-2), making 18 saves in the game.
Samantha McConnell scored the lone goal for the Pats in a 1-1 tie, with Mikaila Rastella picking up the assist.
Miranda Zito buried the only goal for Lincoln School as the two teams were knotted at 1 after one half. But, the second half and a 10-minute overtime period wouldn’t resolve the game, either, as both teams settled for a point.
Pilgrim is now in first place in Division II-South at 6-4-2, and it will return to action today when it travels to South Kingstown (6-5) to oppose the Rebels at Curtis Corner Middle School at 3:45 p.m.
