hockey tough

 

One tough cookie.

 

 

It was a shot you could hear; sounding something like a turkey being dropped on the kitchen floor.

Thud.

Granville forward Ashley Whittier took a karate-style kick to the chops along the sideline Tuesday during second half action against Greenwich. Whittier bent over to try to stop quick when a closing forward snapped a kick at the ball.

While unintentional, the kick was hard. For some reason the referee would not let coach Carol Scott onto the field to evaluate her player. Whittier was obviously injured – spitting blood like a prize fighter or ice hockey player – but was game to go on; she trotted back towards mid field.

Her stunned opponent looked at Scott and in an apologetic tone said “I kicked her right in the face,” as if appealing for her to get Whittier off the field. Finally Whittier was brought to the sideline, but the coach was never let on the field and was faced with drawing a card if she did so without permission.

Mystifying.

Whiter was a trooper and after just a few minutes on the bench to let her parents get a look at what was found to be a chipped tooth was back in the game and a key part in the pressure that led to the Emily Fuller game winner.
