SHRUB OAK, N.Y. — North Salem opened the Hudson Valley Summer Field Hockey League on the right note by recording a 10-1 win over Ossining on July 6 at Lakeland High School.
Analisa Posa and Shaivy Tiwari each recorded three goals to pace the Tigers. Posa also dished out two assists for a North Salem squad that jumped out to a 6-1 halftime lead.
North Salem coach Jen Frohman is hoping to see steady progress from her Tigers over the course of the league, which runs until Aug. 8.
“Our goal for summer league is that it continues to help both individuals and the team grow as a whole,” Frohman said.
Natalie Intrieri (1A), Mariana Alpizar (1A), Isabella Fox-Mills and Jessica Reiner added one goal apiece.
Molly McGuinness made two saves in net for the Tigers.
North Salem (1-1) fell to Lakeland Gold 10-0 on July 11. Olivia DeSanto made eight saves, while McGuinness had five saves.
The Tigers took on Yorktown on July 13 and will face-off with Putnam Valley at 6 p.m. the following day.
Six seniors graduated from last year’s squad and many of them made major contributions.
“Although those girls cannot be replaced, we need to do our best to fill their shoes,” Frohman said. “We have a unique situation this year where there will be no seniors on our team, so along with filling six graduates’ shoes, we have leadership positions that also need to be filled. This winter and spring, many of the girls began that process as they continued to build their game and improve their skills through various leagues and clinics.”
