SI Field Hockey wins a thriller in the CCS Semi's to advance to the CCS Championship Game.
The Wildcats took on St. Francis for the 3rd time this season -- two times before in the Blossom Valley Athletic League play. The result was similar as the previous games -- a 1-0 win on 9/26, a 2-1 win on 10/19, and a 1-0 overtime win in the CCS semifinals on 11/8. The Lancers and Wildcats have played terrific field hockey in their 3 games. Both teams are evenly matched and well-respected from eachothers sidelines. The SI defense has been a stalwart, allowing only one goal in three games. The CCS semifinal game ended regulation tied 0-0 and, as per field hockey rules, teams play a golden goal overtime period, where the team who scores first, wins the game. The Wildcats pounced early and put pressure on the Lancer defense and scored the game winner early in the overtime period on an assist from #16 Amanda Hughes, and a goal by #11 Meaghan Manning.
Best of luck to the SI Wildcats this Saturday as they take on Los Gatos in the CCS Championship Game!
