WESTFIELD – Monday’s game between the Westfield and Northampton high school field hockey teams was an evenly matched tug-of-war. The Bombers and Blue Devils remained deadlocked at 1-1 at the half, and finished tied 2-2.
Abby Daley scored both Westfield goals. Lara Finnie earned an assist. Kendyll Wing and Kate Sullivan scored for Northampton.
“Westfield put on the pressure offensively but Northampton’s defense held us,” Bombers coach Courtney Albee said. “Their goalie had a great game saving some great shots.”
Northampton goalies Mavis Rudof and Ella Moreau combined for 16 saves. Westfield’s keeper, Ariana Ciaschini collected four saves.
The two teams will meet again this Friday in Northampton. “We look to bring the same intensity when we play them again this Friday,” coach Albee said.
