Field hockey team falls in first round of state playoffs

The Lady Pats come up short against Ephrata in the first round of the field hockey state playoffs, with a score of 4-1. 

The first quarter was rough for the Pats, and it seemed to remain that way the majority of the game. With five minutes left in the first quarter, Ephrata banged in a goal to put its team up 1-0.

In the second quarter, the Lady Pats looked to get something going. This included Morgan Wood, a freshman, running the full length of the field to barely come up short of a goal because of a save by the keeper. With multiple Carroll corners, the ladies just couldn’t quite piece it together. With four minutes left in the second quarter, Ephrata put in another goal to make the score 2-0.

The third quarter the Lady Pats had nothing going, as the Ephrata goalie racked up several saves. It was mostly back and forth, and Ephrata ended up punching another goal in, with eight minutes left in the third. That made the score 3-0 going into the fourth.

The Lady Pats were looking for anything and everything to string a couple goals together, and Sienna Golden, a senior, tried to get that going. She knocked in a goal with 9:22 minutes left in the fourth. With time winding down, Ephrata struck the last blow by scoring again with five minutes left. This made the score 4-1. 

Time eventually winded down, and the Lady Pats were defeated. The final score of the game was 4-1, Ephrata.

“I thought it was a bad way to go out,” senior Beth Wineburg said. “I thought we could have played harder, but at the end of the day I couldn’t ask for a better group of girls to share that field with.”

Senior Sarah Wood echoed her classmate’s sentiment.

“Although we all wanted to win, I wouldn’t want to be on that field with any other group of girls,” Wood said. “This was an amazing season, and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.”

Beth Wineburg’s twin sister and teammate Laura Wineburg also was wistful about ending her Carroll field hockey career.

“I will always remember this team and these girls,” Wineburg said. “While I would have liked to go further, I am proud of our team and our season as a whole.”
