Eagle 3-2 field hockey victory over South Portland - By Stacey Richmond

A hat trick by senior captain Morgan Richmond helps the Eagles to a win over the Red Riots. Richmond’s first half goals were assisted by junior Mattie Marcello and sophomore Hannah Skvorak. JV goalie Tessa Amero stepped up to goal with six saves on the game. Junior captain Erin Malloy, led the defensive end with two saves from shots on goal by the Riots. The Eagles are rallying to improve their 3-4 record. A tough start to the season was plagued by illness, schedule conflicts, and a 2-week loss of senior midfield captain Aleia Ansin due to a concussion.  They hope to have two more wins this week over Gorham and Sanford. While coach Dillon sees her team playing tenacious defense this season, coach emphasizes that this defense needs to transition to more scoring opportunities. “This is a strong group of girls who have the ability to have a successful season,” said Dillon.
