Roundup: Greencastle makes Cole's goal stand
GREENCASTLE 1, BISHOP MCDEVITT 0 >> Lauren Cole scored midway through the second half, and Greencastle-Antrim made it stand up in a non-league field hockey win over Bishop McDevitt on Tuesday afternoon.
"Today was a fairly evenly played game in which neither team sustained much offensive possession," Greencastle coach Becca Farson said. "The game was played mostly in the middle of the field."
The Blue Devils (8-6-1) held McDevitt to only two shots.
Cole's goal was assisted by Sabrina Martin.
"Lauren Cole was instrumental in getting us into the circle numerous times and took control of the ball down the field to score the lone goal of the game," Farson said. "Emily Bland once again keyed a strong defensive effort in front of the cage."
