Field Hockey bids season farewell, prepares for CCS

The field hockey team travelled to Los Gatos Oct. 28 hoping to reverse the string of losses they've had against their rivals. But again the result was the same: The Falcons lost 4-1 with the lone goal scored by senior forward Tina Miller.

The Falcons finished the season with an overall record of 11-4-2 and ended up in second place of the De Anza League behind Los Gatos.

The girls played a home game against Monta Vista on Oct. 26 and won 5-1, with two goals from senior midfielder Hannah Leonard and three from Miller. The same night, the girls celebrated their win and cherished their team with their Senior Night, honoring Leonard, Miller, Emily Chen, Rachel Davey, Kelsey Kinoshita, and twins Maxine and Sophie Parr.

The girls soundly defeated Lynbrook 5-0 in an away game on Oct. 21. The team secured their victory with three goals from Miller and one each from Davey and junior midfielder Kate Bossi. Earlier, in a home non-league game against Davis on Oct. 19, the girls tied with a score of 1-1, with the goal scored by Miller.

The girls have qualified for CCS for the fourth year in a row, after reaching semifinals last year. In preparation for their first match of CCS, the girls are working on their passing accuracy.

I have the utmost confidence in the team and their ability to get the job done,” coach Nanu Sidhu said. “It's been great to see the team play the way they have, and having fun doing so.”

Due to printing deadlines, the Falcon was unable to cover the first round of CCS in the print issue.
