Deerfield Girls Hockey played our first home game of the season, defeating Berkshire 4-0. After a pep talk from Dr. Austin, the girls came out and scored two goals in the opening period, the first from Jackson Kinsler ‘22 and the second when Ellia Chiang ‘21 put home her own rebound. Though penalty trouble was the story of the final two frames, Bliss Vernon ‘22 and Elena Junkala ‘22 both scored their first Deerfield goals off of gritty efforts to secure the victory. Keri Clougherty ‘21 and Sara Ito-Bagshaw ‘22 were excellent on defense, and Emma Tennant ‘21 earned the shut out, and the hard hat, in net for the Big Green. Big shout out to Ollie Hemphill ‘22 for making life tough for us as the Berkshire goalie! We are back at it tomorrow as we travel to Berkshire for a 1pm puck drop.
