Game of the Day
Annville-Cleona field hockey 8, Northern Lebanon 1
Don't look now, but the Annville-Cleona field hockey team is off to a torrid start and getting better all the time.
A-C improved to 9-1 on Wednesday with an 8-1 dismantling of Northern Lebanon in Fredericksburg.
Michaela Singer's hat trick led the way for Sue Felty's squad (5-1 Section Three) and Morgan Zimmerman, Katelyn Brightbill, Emily Feibig and Lauren Schrader also scored for A-C, which scored four times in each half on the way to the lopsided victory. Schrader contributed two goals to the win.
Carrie Shuey scored the lone goal for Northern Lebanon, which was outshot 23-3.
Player of the Day
Katelyn Mark, Palmyra field hockey
Overshadowed by more high-profile players, Katelyn Mark has been something of an unsung hero for the Palmyra field hockey team the last few seasons. On Wednesday night, Mark wasn't so unsung, contributing two goals and an assist to the Cougars' 7-1 rout of Susquehanna Township.
The goals were the senior midfielder/defender and Penn recruit's fourth and fifth of the season and helped Palmyra improve to 7-1 for the season.
Both of Mark's goals were unassisted and came in the second half, and she assisted on Jess Dembrowski's first half goal that helped the Cougars to a 3-0 halftime lead.
