To the finals
NHIAA Field Hockey: Derryfield earns Div. III finals
The undefeated, top-seeded Cougars, who have yet to concede a goal this season,controlled the play for most of the first half. But it was Hopkinton that had the biggest scoring chances in the first half.
With just one minute left in the opening half, Berklee Vaillancourt took a centering pass on a penalty corner and blasted a shot into the net to make it 1-0 Derryfield.
That’s when Hopkinton appeared to score the tying goal but it was waved off by an official who called a kicked ball on the play.
Gilford scored first on a shot by Alyssa Hamberger that was deflected by a defender in front of goalie Julie Downs.
Both teams exchanged scoring chances but the half ended tied.
The constant pressure in the Golden Eagle zone resulted in many penalty corners but Berlin was unable to capitalize on them.
Just three minutes into the overtime a penalty corner was awarded to Berlin.
“We definitely believed we could win” said Gendron. “We’re all happy and proud right now.”
Gilford coach David Rogacki put his team’s accomplishments in perspective. “When these kids were sophomores they were 2-12. To get to the final four, they did a great job.
