Hockey, Girls: Varsity defeats NMH

Deerfield took control from the very beginning of the game, besting NMH 6-1 at home on Wednesday afternoon. Caroline Skillman ‘19 got us on the board early, taking a feed from Christina Halloran ‘20 and putting a beautiful backhand shot top corner. Mary Edmonds ‘19 then scored twice before the end of the period, the first unassisted and the second assisted by Lisa Ito-Bagshaw ‘21 and Aurora Devereaux ‘20. Ali Fujiyoshi ‘19 added to our lead on the power play in the second period (assists to Halloran and Edmonds), and then Edmonds completed the hat trick on a breakaway. Erin Howe ‘20 scored a beautiful goal in the third period (assist to Edmonds), but NMH was also able to get on the board before the end of the game. Jordan Manning ‘19 and Abby Fernald ‘22, seeing her first game action at Deerfield, both did a nice job in goal. Brianna Felice ‘21 earned the hard hat for her work ethic and support all over the ice. Thank you to the Emersons for the wings, cookies and drinks after the game. Next up is Exeter at home on Saturday afternoon.
