Antioch varsity field hockey played against Glenbard West on Monday, September 27.The girls played in a well-fought game. Unfortunately, they could not get a goal into the cage. Although the girls have improved from the beginning of the season, they still have aspects to work on. 

“I think we did good,” junior Cameron Pluciennik said. “We just, we definitely had a lot of opportunities and we just did not capitalize on any of them so we just have to try and do better on that but other than that we did pretty good.”

The girls lost by one, but it would have been a greater margin without the help of their goalie, junior Allison Curry. Curry had some amazing blocks during the game, keeping Glenbard West away from scoring any more goals. 

Glenbard West was able to continuously get penalty corners against Antioch. However, Antioch had a strong defense, which allowed them to get out of corners much faster, taking away Glenbard’s advantage.

Although the girls have improved from the beginning of the season, they still have room for improvement. Communication is key in all team sports and that is something that this team needs to work on.

“[We need to] work on communication on the field and stay focused,” junior Mollie Tubbs said.

The team is willing to do what it takes to improve, including playing new positions when needed. Junior Kelsie MacMillan usually plays center defense, but during the game, she was playing sweep. A sweep is a position on the same side of the field and still considered a defense position, but it has different aspects and a different job that you need to look out for. 

“I think I did okay today. I was playing a position I don’t normally play so I was a little bit more nervous than normal, but I think I was doing a good job,” junior Kelsie MacMillan said. 

The next field hockey game is Saturday, October 2, against St. Ignatius.
