The girls field hockey team was able to get their first win of the season by “crushing the rush” last Friday afternoon. The anticipated district rival game against Lakes Community High School persuaded both teams to bring their A-game.

Eight minutes into the first half, senior Deighton Butenschoen scored the first goal with a drive. Junior goalie Zoe Semersky also had many memorable saves throughout the game.

“It’s really great watching field hockey and watching my sister, Zoe, beat Lakes,” freshman Sophia Semersky said.

Antioch’s defense was able to defend incoming shots, and junior Ashley Hradisky made a noteworthy save in the first half.

Senior Julia Murillo started the second half by scoring two goals, however Lakes retaliated with six minutes remaining with a goal from Alyssa Centnarowicz. Despite Lakes’ determination, the Sequoits finished the game with a winning score of 3-1.

The game also attracted many Lakes fans to come watch their rivals play.

“This is my first time watching a field hockey game. I’m learning all the ins and outs. It’s a pretty entertaining game,” Lakes junior Eric Brugioni said.

The Sequoits hope to continue winning games and executing against every team.
