In the second game of the Cushing tournament, Deerfield earned a 4-1 against Northwood. Mary Edmonds ‘19 ripped a beautiful shot to open the scoring (assists to the Howe sisters, Erin ‘20 and Kelly ‘22) in the first period, but Northwood tied the score in the second on a breakaway. Edmonds gave us the lead once again (assists to Lisa Ito-Bagshaw ‘21 and Ellia Chiang ‘21), and completed the hat trick in the third (assists to Lisa). The final frame was our strongest of the game, as all three lines and 6 defense worked hard all over the ice and dictated the pace. Christina Halloran ‘20 rounded out the scoring (Mae Emerson ‘19 assist) after lots of good work down low by her line. Jordan Manning ‘19 earned the win in goal, and Sara Ito-Bagshaw ‘22 earned the hard hat for her intensity, toughness and positivity. We’ll return to the hotel for our annual Holiday Party and Yankee Swap, and then take on New Hampton at 7pm for a place in the championship game. Thank you to the Fujiyoshis for the drinks after the game, and for taking the lead in organizing the big team gathering.
