Field Hockey / J.V.
Suffield's junior varsity athletics teams welcome students of all ability levels to experience the excitement and challenge of interscholastic engagement. The goals at this level of sport are focused on amplifying transferable skills, such as teamwork and communication, exposing students to new and different extracurricular opportunities, and enhancing both personal and social growth through participation in team-based competition.
The Tigers were excited for their first game. With a newer team and players still learning team dynamics and positions, NMH capitalized on their opportunities. Despite the score, the team was positive and supportive throughout the four quarters. Shout out to Lia B (’27) for helping us out in goal (in her second game of the day!)
The cloudy Saturday afternoon did not dampen the team’s energy and excitement. In the first quarter, an offensive corner led to the team’s first goal of the season by Alice E. (’27) At halftime, the score was 1-0 thanks to some impressive saves by Kathryn C (‘26) in goal. In the third, Lauren D (’25) scored, and in the fourth Neeva P (’26). The Tigers look to carry their positive energy into our first away game on Wednesday.
A late arrival had the team scrambling to get ready for the game. With only 8 minutes on the clock, it was a hectic warm up to say the least. However, the Tigers got on the field and wasted no time in getting to business. The team played with energy, running to every ball and matching the fast pace of Porter’s astro turf pitch.
With three minutes left in the first, Neeva Patel ’26 scored her first goal. The second quarter didn’t faze the girls, and Lauren Dobler ’25 got her stick on the ball and into the net. At halftime, the team caught their breath and kept up the pressure. Neeva Patel ’26 scored again in the third. In the fourth, the constant pressure in the offensive circle led to Molly Silverman’s ’27 first goal of her Suffield career.
It was a high energy, competitive game. Miss Porter’s played with grace and intensity. The Tigers will have to wait until next Wednesday for their next match.
