The Assumption Field Hockey team improved its record to 10-4 and Northeast 10 conference record to 5-2, on Saturday, October 25, with a win over conference giants St. Michael’s College.
St. Michael’s, a nationally ranked team that was previously undefeated in the NE-10, was a challenge that Assumption took on with great tenacity.
With a supportive crowd behind them at the Multi-Sport Stadium, the Hounds came out early with offensive pressure.
“Our goal was to come out really strong and set the pace of the game, to make it our pace,” said head coach Ann Lahey. “St. Michael’s is really strong, they have a great defense, so getting through them was going to be the toughest thing that we were going to do.”
The Lady Hounds achieved just that, as they stayed on the attack with good wing play and crisp passing.
