Saline High School
For the first time in the history of the Saline field hockey program, the Hornets defeated the Skyline Eagles. Saline used dynamic passing combinations along with strong finishing skills to beat the Eagles 3-0 in Hornet Stadium Saturday afternoon.
Scoring twice for the Hornets was Junior Emi Maloney. Maloney’s two goals came off of rebounds, the first with only 3 minutes left in the first half after a beautiful passing combination between midfielders and forwards.
Sophomore left wing Bridget Skelly scored the second goal on a reverse hit during a penalty corner.
The Hornet defense was lead by goal keeper Julia Bentley and defenders Kari Szalay, Audrey Morton, Sophie Goethals and Fiona Morcom.
Saline plays at Ladywood on Monday and on Tuesday in Hornet Stadium at 7 p.m.
