Midd-West 1 Forbes Road 0

Selinsgrove, Pa. – The Forbes Road (0-1) field hockey team kicked off their season with a road trip to take on the Midd-West Mustangs.  Due to new stadium construction at Midd-West, the match took place at Selinsgrove High School.  At the halfway point, the game remained scoreless despite FR having a 6-0 lead over the Mustangs in shots on goal. At 16:34 mark in the second half the Mustangs were able to move the ball into scoring position and find the cage. Sydney Keister scored on a rebounded shot to push the Mustangs into the lead. The Cardinals worked the ball from all angles for the remaining minutes, but were unable to capitalize before the final whistle.
