Garden City's varsity field hockey team advanced their record to 9-0 after a 2-0 win over defending Nassau champion Manhasset on Tuesday afternoon October 8th. The Trojans had defeated the Indians 2-1 earlier this season and were looking for a regular season sweep of the Indians.
GC scored early when Melanie McHugh tipped in Michaela Bruno's shot off a penalty corner to open the scoring with 24:09 left in the first half. Three minutes later senior captain Tara DeAngelo, off another assist from Bruno, found the back of the goal to give the Trojans the 2-0 lead.
While Manhasset did have a few scoring opportunities, the Trojans' defense, including Brianne Griffith and Jackie Marino was, as usual, like a fortress that Manhasset had a hard time penetrating. Goalie Sabrina Milone made seven saves to preserve the shutout for the Trojans who will travel to North Shore HS in Glen Head for a 10am game on Columbus Day. Manhasset goalkeeper Jensen Polizzotto made eight saves in goal for the Indians. xxx xxx xxx
