Sports field hockey

Monday Granville Golden Horde field hockey hoped to right the ship with a win taking on Salem at home.

Granville got their wish, although it took longer than they might have hoped for, as the Horde needed double overtime to get past Salem 2-1 and even their Wasaren League record at 1-1.

Nicole LaPlante delivered the game-winner on a break away with 6:54 remaining during the second overtime period to take home the win. Darian Chapman knocked in a goal off of a penalty corner from in front of the net, with an assist by Katelynn Leavey, to stake Granville to the first half lead at 23:18 remaining. The Horde maintained the advantage in possession for much of the first half. Salem’s Dana Kupec was able to slip in a goal with just over 15 minutes left to force overtime. Granville was edged in penalty corner 12-10 and gave up 8 shots on goal while launching 9 shots of their own.  

The Granville regular season debut was not what the Horde were looking for as they were shutout on the road, 8-0 at Greenwich. Granville was dominated in shots 19-1 and penalty corners 14-3, giving up a hat trick and five solo goals to the Witches.
