Forbes Road 3 Fox Chapel 0
Pittsburgh, Pa. – It’s been a busy week for the Forbes Road field hockey team (12-2). Saturday they traveled to the outskirts of Pittsburgh to take on the Fox Chapel Foxes for their fourth game in four days. They looked as fresh as could be as they finished the game with an 18-1 shot advantage over the Foxes.
With the Cardinals working all angles of the circle for the first 18 minutes, Junior Madison Hays finally was able to gather up a deflected ball and push it over the line to put Forbes on the scoreboard. The strong Cardinal midfielders and halfbacks denied the Foxes every attempt to drive towards the other end. The score at the half was 1-0.
Just 2 minutes into the second half, Freshman Heidi Strait scored her left post goal on a penalty corner ball set up for her by Emma Gelvin and Hays. Sister Harlie Strait would score the final goal of the game 8 minutes later on a scramble in front of the cage.
The Cardinals are back on the road Tuesday evening as they visit Southern Huntingdon for a 6:30 pm match up.
