Field Hockey: Varsity defeats Andover

Event Details

Deerfield faced the 2018 New England Champions, Phillips Andover, on Saturday afternoon at home.  Defying the weather conditions, DA played a strong offensive game.  Their layering and hustle helped them hold and regain possession and their communication allowed for their efforts to be rewarded all over the turf.  While there were many attempts, Deerfield’s Maddy Zavalick ’22 scored the only goal of the game during the first-half.  She placed the ball perfectly in the corner of the net to put Deerfield ahead by one on the scoreboard.  Despite soggy playing conditions, play remained competitive during the second half.  At the end of the second half, Deerfield remained on top 1 – 0.  Liv Mikesell made two saves in goal for Deerfield.  Next, DAFH heads to Greenwich to play on Sunday, November 3rd.
