In the opening game of our season, the Lady Coyotes Field Hockey Team defeated a tough Urbana squad 2-1 as the Coyotes jumped out of the gate, playing with great energy, excellent team play, and intensity. Finding the back of the cage early, scoring our first goal of the season was Sophomore, Kyra Bencal with an assist from Anna Bertrand. Urbana answered back in the second half on a strong shot from the top of the circle to even out the score 1-1. With just under 6 minutes left in the game, Anna Bertrand scored on a beautiful game-winning shot from the right side of the circle to put the Coyotes ahead for good in our season-opener. Goalie, Jamie Fritz recorder 7 saves and her defense played spectacular, led by Joanna Yoo, Jazmine Porter, Daniela Isla, Megan Kerchaert and the rest of the Lady Coyotes.
Congratulations Lady Coyotes!
MVP’S: Kyra Bencal, Megan Kerchaert
