NORTH SALEM, N.Y.— An experienced North Salem field hockey team has piled up the victories this season and that trend continued last week.
The Tigers topped visiting Pleasantville in a 1-0 shutout victory on Oct. 3 behind Juliet Serra’s game-winning goal with 13:39 left in the game.
Pleasantville goalie Charlotte Keane made 12 saves to keep an aggressive Tiger offense at bay for most of the contest. North Salem goalie Olivia DeSanto made two saves.
North Salem improved to 8-1 with a 2-0 blanking of host Rye Neck two days later.
Natalie Intrieri and Allison Eberhardt each tallied a goal for the Tigers with Sophia Cocking registering an assist.
“Rye Neck actually had the advantage on number of corners, but I’m proud of my girls for finishing their opportunities,” North Salem coach Jennifer Frohman said.
The Tigers hosted Our Lady of Lourdes (Oct. 10) and Irvington (Oct. 11) before traveling to Hastings for a 4:30 p.m. game on Oct. 13. They then head to Somers for a 3:15 p.m. contest the next day.
