The young ladies from the Hudson Valley Field Hockey Team are heading west this week. They are leaving chilly NY for sunny California to take part in the annual field hockey tournament ("Festival") in Indio California, which is just outside of Palm Springs. The girls are looking forward to competing at the highest level of high school field hockey and also having some down time with their teammates. Hudson Valley has been participating in Festival for many years and have used it as a valuable recruiting venue along with an arena for facing the top players in the country. The team can't wait to play their first game on Wednesday, where temperatures are expected to be in the mid-sixties. Go HV!

Many Hudson Valley Field Hockey Club players took to the pitch at Valhalla High School for the New York State Regional Championship Tournament yesterday. It was a great day for field hockey fans in Westchester and in New York State as there was a lot of talent displayed. Although the turf's surface was a little slower than usual the girls seemed to make the needed adjustments. HV's Grace Fitzgerald got a terrific strike off a corner that Lizzie Clarke tip into the net to get the scoring started for Mamaroneck. Maine-Endwell launched an impressive comeback in the second half and could have equalized the score off a corner but Mamaronecks’ defense held strong.
In the class B Title Game, Lakeland dominated on offense with over 40 circle entries but Vestal’s goalkeeper was on fire. Vestal played hard from start to finish. HV's Megan Fahey found the first opening off of a rebound and put the ball into the back of the net to get Lakeland on the board. The score at half was 1-0 Lakeland. Lakeland answered with three goals in the second half two of which came in the last ten minutes. HV’s Brianna Muniz found the back of the net off a fast break to notch Lakeland’s second goal of the day. The low angle shot defelected off a Vestal defender. Jessica Ascencao got on the board for Lakeland off an assist on a corner from Mia Lennon. The final goal would come from HV's Dana Bozek who blasted a rocket from the top of the circle which was deflected into the net off the stick of one of the Vestal’s defenders. Midfielders Val Perkins had Julia Wanamaker had strong performances.
Lakelands’ defense led by Julia Kim, Katie Irish and Mia Lennon was very stingy on scoring opportunities for the Golden Bears. Goalkeeper Madison Beames had a really nice save in the first half. Her cross over kick was perfectly executed. Left back Kelsey McCrudden also added some impressive defensive stops.
Both teams advanced to the final four next weekend. Good luck Girls!

It's never a dull moment when Darien and Lakeland take to the Pitch
In a match that was once again billed as the game of the week, Lakeland defeated Darien (CT) 6-0. At halftime the score was 1-0 and Lakeland was dominating on the offensive end of the field. Both teams were displaying a lot of skill and athleticism. The Blue Wave had some scoring opportunities but Lakeland's defense shut them down.
It was also fun catching up with some of our club players who are competeting for their high school teams.
