Atholton and Marriotts Ridge took another step closer to a share of the Howard County field hockey title when they defeated Reservoir and Howard, respectively, on Monday. Because of weather conditions, both games were played on artificial turf fields.
Each team has one regular-season game left on its schedule, as does Glenelg, which is also tied for first in the county. All three teams have 9-1 records.
Atholton 11, Reservoir 0
Reservoir goalie Connie Chung turned back 25 shots, but Atholton managed to score 11 goals.
Jen Bleakney led the way with six goals and two assists.
Caroline Blalock had a hat trick as Marriotts Ridge defeated Howard. The game, originally scheduled for Oct. 10, was pushed to Monday due to wet field conditions. Monday's rain caused the game to be switched to artificial turf.
Goals: MR — Caroline Blalock 3, Joan Condron, Maddie Courtney. Ho — Allyson Sloan, Maddie Land.
Assists: MR — Maddie Courtney 2, Bailey Souder. Ho — Zoe Summa.
