Holmdel defeats Rumson Fair Haven in Freshman Girls Field Hockey

Holmdel High School Freshman field hockey team (5 -6)played Rumson Fair Haven High School (RFH) at home today. Holmdel was able to come away with a win by out scoring RFH by a score of 3 - 0. Holmdel's defense was able to record another shutout.

During the first half both teams appeared to be evenly matched. The ball moved up and down the field and neither team had complete control of the game. At the end of the first half the score was still 0 - 0.

Not sure what the Holmdel coach told her team at half time but whatever it was it worked. The team that took the field for the start of the second half seemed completely different that the team that had played during the first half. Holmdel spent the almost the whole second half on offense. RFH only got close to Holmdel's goal a couple of times. Holmdel was able to turn RFH around at the half field on almost every break away. Holmdel was executing on their corners and by the mid point of the second half Holmdel was a threat to score on every posession.

Rumson Fair Haven had one of the nicest uniforms of every team that Holmdel has played this year. The purple with laid skirt uniforms looked like they were designed by Alexander Julian.

Holmdel Freshman Field Hockey team only has one more game left against Wall Township on October 23. This will give the team the opportunity to finish the year with a .500 record. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend.

I have really enjoyed watching the games this year. I am now looking forward to next year's JV season.
