After a long hiatus, Deerfield Girls Hockey was so excited to take the ice this afternoon against rival Choate. The 31-day lay-off certainly showed, but while our play was sloppy at times, we played with a lot of energy and held on for a 3-2 win. Bliss Vernon ‘22 (who had a tremendous game) got the scoring started, and Emma Gurnell ‘22 (assist to Jackson Kinsler ‘22) and Sage Piekarski ‘23 (finishing off a beautiful play by Kinsler and Gurnell) also found the back of the net. Grace Caligiuri ‘22, who earned the hard hat, was strong in goal, and both Annie Dinges ‘24 and Sara Robert ‘22 were strong in all three zones. We appreciated all of the fans who came out to support us today, and we look forward to our Friday night game against New Hampton!
