Hockey, Girls: Varsity defeats Exeter

Event Details

From the drop of the puck, Deerfield played smart, hard, and together, putting together our most consistent effort of the season. In the first period, we put eighteen shots on the Exeter goal, but actually came away down 1-0 when the visitors had a bounce go their way on the power play. However, our leaders really stepped up in between periods, energizing their teammates and rallying everyone to renew their efforts. It clearly worked, as Christina Halloran ’20 evened the score with a beautiful deflection of a Deirdre Mullowney ’19 shot. Then, our power play unit, who had been dangerous all afternoon, finally converted as Jenna Greenbaum ’17 slammed home a Meghan Halloran ’17 rebound. In the third period. Greenbaum found the elder Halloran out front for our third goal, and then Erin DeMarco ’19 scored the first of her Deerfield career with a smart shot from the point. Jordan Manning ’19 earned the win in goal, while the Exeter goalie was outstanding with 34 saves on the day. Everyone contributed to this great team win, and we look forward to keeping the momentum going against Choate on Wednesday. Many thanks to the DeMarcos for the pizza, fruit, cookies and drinks after the game.
