Forbes Road 5 Southern Huntingdon 1
Three Springs, Pa. – The Forbes Road Cardinal field hockey team (13-2) traveled to take on the Rockets of Southern Huntingdon for their senior night recognition game on Tuesday. It was a picture perfect Fall evening for a 6:30 game under the lights.
The attack heavy Cardinals earned a couple quick penalty corners right after the opening whistle. It wasn’t until 8 minutes in that Harlie Strait would capitalize and score on a picture perfect corner play set up for her by Quincy McMath and Shelby Harnish. Strait would score again 3 minutes later, this time set up by sister Heidi Strait and McMath. The Cardinals continued to hammer away at the Rocket defense. Kaelonni Lashinsky picked up a loose ball deflected off a defender’s stick and sent it over the line to send the Cardinals up 3-0 at the half.
The second half continued much like the first. McMath earned two goals of her own in a 2 minute span of play 9 minutes in. The first was on a ball she maneuvered from near the 25 yard line and through the Rocket defense and straight into the cage. Her second and final goal for the Cardinals was assisted by freshman Abby Deshong and Harnish. Cheyenne Patton scored the lone Rocket goal on a stroke with 3:30 left on the game clock.
The Cardinals finish up regular season play Thursday when they host the Huntingdon Bearcats at 4 pm.
