The Mustangs field hockey team closed out their championship regular season on Thursday with their 10th win.

C. Milton Wright shut out the visiting Cobras in an Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference nondivision game. CMW won the Chesapeake Division, while the Cobras were Susquehanna Division champs.

Abby Blair scored the game’s lone goal off an assist from Erin Cowie with 9:23 left in the fourth quarter.

The Cobras, who were missing two regular starters, had their best scoring chance in the first half. Paige Stanley had a hard drive on the net, but it was turned away by Mustangs goalie Phoebe Hennessy for her only save of the night.

“We had a couple calls that didn’t go our way tonight, but the girls fought through to come out on top,” C. Milton Wright coach Kelsey Lovelace said. “Our defense held Harford Tech to one shot. Super proud of this group of girls to finish 10-2. We are now shifting our focus [to] playoffs, which is something the girls have been looking forward to since day one.”
