Hockey, Girls: Junior Varsity defeats Williston

Event Details

A unique sequence of events led to our only match up against our neighbors at Williston to play out on a Tuesday afternoon.  We knew the competition would be fierce, something we were looking forward to; however, noting could stop the Big Green.  We came out strong in the first period with an early goal from senior Katie Whalen. Who skillfully maneuvered the puck from one end of the ice to the other and caught the goalie off guard.  A near goal from Williston pumped us up and Meredith Heaney put one in to go up 2-0.  Williston answered before the period was over to make it 2-1.  The second of two running time periods began with complete domination by a strong Deerfield squad.  Goals were scored by Hannah Roche, Maggie Roche, Bailey Cheetham and another by Katie Whalen to put us up 6-1.  Williston did not let up and put in two goals of their own before the final buzzer.  Hunter Keller played an outstanding game in front of the goal, definitely making the difference for us today.
