Lauren Graef leads a fast break during a hard-fought loss to Glastonbury.

After beginning their season with a 2-0 victory on the road at Windsor, the Lady Knight field hockey team had a rough homecoming with a pair of tough losses.

The Knights hosted top-five Glastonbury in their home opener on Tuesday, Sept. 13, but were blanked, 3-0. The Tomahawks scored a pair of goals in the first half and capped off the victory with one in the second.

Amanda Delorme saved 22 of Glastonbury’s 25 shots on goal. Southington failed to record a single shot on goal or penalty corner.

Three days later, the Knights suffered a one-goal loss, 2-1, to Newington.

Jennifer Briscoe put the first point of the game on the scoreboard with a goal midway through the first half, but the Indians tied the contest with a goal in the closing minutes of the half and eventually scored the winning goal with just over two minutes to go in the game.

Delorme saved eight of Newington’s 10 shots on goal. Southington finished with 10 shots on goal and eight penalty corners.

Southington is currently 1-2 overall and 1-0 in the CCC North, tied for 18th out of 27 teams in Class L and tied for first out of seven teams in the CCC North.

The Knights will be back in action on the road this week against South Windsor (3-0) and Avon (2-2).
