Hockey looking for first win

Field Hockey 1

The Lady Knights field hockey team (0-5) has yet to find a win on the season, but they never despair when they are staring into the eyes of defeat. Simply put, the Knights show another side, where there is more to winning and losing.

The Knights have shown nothing, but pride and dignity through their search for success, pulling together as a team when times are tough, as well as picking one another up when they are down. They display class on and off the field countless times, honoring the true meaning of Southington athletes.

On Monday, Sept. 21, the Knights came up short at home to South Windsor, 6-0.

South Windsor scored their first goal with 3:31 to go in the first half, with the other five coming in the second half. Amanda Delorme saved 10 of Simsbury’s 16 shots on goal. The Knights took five shots on goal with four penalty corners. Simsbury took eight penalty corners.

On Friday, the Knights hosted Avon (4-1) in a 4-0 loss. Avon first goal came with 21:50 to go in the first half. Avon scored the other three throughout the second half. Delorme saved 23 of Avon’s 27 shots on goal. Avon had 25 penalty corners.

The Knights will look to get their first win when they travel to Fermi (1-4-1) on Tuesday, Sept. 29.
