Ls vs. Beverly (playoff game)

Senior captain Keira had two goals, including the game-winner as the No. 11 Lincoln-Sudbury field hockey team defeated sixth-seeded Beverly 2-1 in overtime in the first round of the Division 1 North sectional on Thursday.

L-S (12-5) will play at third-seeded and Dual County League Large rival Acton-Boxboro in the quarterfinals at a date and time to be announced later.

Senior captain Kenzie had an assist, and fellow senior captain McShane and sophomore Izzy played well for the Warriors.

“They are a tough team,” L-S coach Vicky Caburian said. “I give them credit for pushing us today. We had 21 corners today, but were only able to capitalize on two of them, but I am really proud of the team for persevering and getting the job done. Going into overtime is a test of resilience and heart and the girls pulled through today.”

LS vs. Wayland

The season opener for the Lincoln-Sudbury field hockey team on Tuesday, Sept. 5 against Wayland couldn’t have gone any better in a dominant 8-0 victory.  Kerri got things started for L-S less than five minutes in, scoring on a corner after some good ball movement with Keira getting the first of her two assists on the day. Izzy made it 2-0 with 19:16 to go in the half on another corner with another assist going to Keira.  A Kenzie shot through traffic put L-S up 3-0 with a little over 15 minutes remaining.  McShane batted home a loose ball in front of Wayland goalie Fatma (13 saves) to make it 4-0 a minute later.  With 10:15 to play Keira converted a penalty stroke goal for the 5-0 lead after it was awarded due to a Wayland defender stopping the ball inside the cage.  The prettiest goal of the day followed minutes later as set up to begin a corner, but instead of simply passing the ball to a teammate she somehow snuck in a shot while putting the corner pass into play — something she said she’d practiced but never thought would actually work — making it 6-0 heading into halftime.  With running time implemented for the second half, L-S put the game away early on as Izzy made it 7-0 30 seconds in and Brooke capped the scoring with 17:44 to play.  Wayland picked up its pressure a bit late in the game, but L-S goalie Kayla came up with three saves on the day. Kayla is actually a defender but stepped into the role of goaltender due to injury.  For L-S, the opener was hopefully the first step to another successful season.  In the win over Weston, senior captains McShane and Kenzie each scored a goal for L-S, which led 2-0 at the half. Brooke recorded the shutout.
