If you weren’t there, you missed an awesome varsity field hockey game between Kenwood and Dundalk. Sophomore Becca Kavanaugh scored a goal in the first half to tie the game which helped to amp up the excitement of the game. Senior goalie, Amy Genovese, made saves that traveled 50 yards and turned the tide of the game. The game ended tied and went into triple overtime. Unfortunately, although Kenwood dominated 90% of the game, they weren’t able to get another goal to top Dundalk. The girls have four games remaining. You can see them take on Parkville at home on Tuesday. Good luck!
Kenwood fell to Lansdowne in double overtime yesterday. The team's only goal came from sophomore Becca Kavanaugh in the first half, tying the game at 1-1. Kenwood dominated taking many shots on goal but it wasn't enough to get past Lansdowne's goalie. After dominating both overtimes, Lansdowne won off of a fast break. Kenwood looks to improve its league record on Thursday, taking on Dundalk at home at 3:45pm.
Both the JV and Varsity field hockey teams were awarded with September's virtue of the month, dignity. The girls were recognized for their actions both on and off the field. In one week, the team learned how to play with dignity, respect for self, and respect for opponents. During a particularly tough game in which the score did not end in Kenwood's favor and a game two days later with a much different outcome-one which gave both teams their first win of the season, the field hockey teams acted in such a manner that coaches from other teams were impressed. The coaching staff is very proud of them. Great job Kenwood field hockey!
