Sequoit Field Hockey Defeats School Rival

The Antioch Community High School field hockey team continues their win streak.


The Antioch field hockey team pushes forward to try and win the ball.

The Antioch field hockey team played their rivals, the Lakes Eagles, on Tuesday September 11. Overall, the game went very well with the Sequoits winning 3-0 bringing this season’s record to 4-2-2.

All sports fans know that games are exciting, but even more so when it’s against the rival team.

“Since we were playing Lakes, our intensity and energy was through the roof,” sophomore Hailey Webb said. “All week, we have been hyped for this game day. We worked extra hard all last week at practice because there was no way we were going to lose to our biggest rivals.”

The Sequoits put themselves ahead early in the game with a goal from senior Karina Steitz in the first half. Once the second half started, they came out as an even better team with stronger offensive plays.

“We picked up our energy and teamwork in the second half and scored two goals right off the bat,” Webb said.

Like all sports, an important part of winning is in the defense the team puts up. This was no problem for the field hockey team as they put the pressure on early in the game, leaving the Eagles scoreless.

Another key factor in the Sequoit’s 3-0 win was the player’s abilites to work together.

“We all started working together and talking to each other,” junior Paige Bolton said. “We were able to pass to our teammates which led us to getting our goals.

Even with a good win, the team knows there is still plenty to work on for the next game.

“We know what we need to fix going into the next game and we know what we need to do to score,” junior Molly Volkmar said.

The field hockey team celebrates this win and prepares for other games in the future.
