Girls Varsity Field Hockey · Scripps Ranch Field Hockey Gets Huge Road Win @ Torrey Pines

Last night Senior Megan Connors earned her pre-season ranking as the #1 player in California by scoring 3 of the 4 team’s goals.  Freshman Kelsey McGrattan added an insurance goal.  The real story was the energy, effort and enthusiasm of of the team as a whole.  The forwards, mids and defense were swarming.  First to every ball.  Every player made a mark, from Megan’s 3 goals to the players on the bench screaming in support.  The defense,  led by Senior Jolie Riedell, once again earned a “brick wall” title allowing only 6 Shots on Goal by a team who averaged 5 goals per game coming in.  Junior GK Erin Burgess tallied 4 saves including a save on a penalty stroke at a critical point of the game.
