The weather may have been grey and rainy but that did not dampen the spirit of the Glenelg Country School field hockey team as the Dragons rolled out a second conference victory this week with a 3-0 win over Friends on Thursday.
Senior attacker Claire McAuliffe, Glenelg’s leader scorer a year ago, got the Dragons on the board late in the first half as she tipped a shot by senior attacker Sam Weinstein past Quakers’ goalkeeper Hannah Gartner.
Junior attacker Allie Pickens, a 2010 National Futures Tournament selection, scored an unassisted goal as she dribbled down field dodging Friends defenders and fired a shot past Gartner from the top of the circle to make it a 2-0 game.
Sam Weinstein then scored the final goal off a pass across the goal from senior attacker Abby Franklin. The Dragons (3-2 overall, 2-1 IAAM B Conference) held the advantage in shots on goal, 22-3, and in penalty corners,15-2.
Glenelg goalie Sarah Bates made two saves to preserve the shut out while Gartner was strong in the cage, making 18 saves for the Quakers (1-3, 1-2).
Glenelg CS has three home conference matches next week starting with John Carroll on Tuesdau afternoon.
