With a few injuries and a talented Saint Marks squad as the opposition, the Lady Bucs field hockey team lost to the visiting Spartans 2-1. In the hunt for a playoff berth the Bucs looked to get a win against a Saint Marks team that has only lost one game this season.

From the start the Spartans were looking for the first goal. Poor midfield play in part of the first half by the Bucs lead to numerous Saint Marks chances yet goalie Rebekah Yanacek turned away all shots and had a stellar kick save at the last moment to keep the score at 0-0.

With a timeout by head coach Andrea Fleming the Bucs regrouped and would soon take the lead.

“I’m very happy with our intensity and skill level.” Head coach Fleming said.

With just under five and a half minutes remaining Destiny Sivels shot home a pass from Peyton Shockley to give Milford the 1-0 lead. That lead was extremely short lived. In less than a minute later the Spartans drove down field and the Spartans Jenna Fannon, got one past Yanacek and tied the game at 1-1.

The game would not be tied very long. With 2 minutes to go in the first half the Spartans would go up another, when forward Haley Schweizer scored off a penalty corner.

The second half was much of the Spartans attacking the Milford goal but they were unable to grow their lead. Milford would score another goal part way through the second half only to have it pulled back.
In the waning moments Sivels drove down field with her team behind her, yet time expired and Saint Marks were the victors.

“For a young team they played very well, never gave.” Fleming said. “They made some mental mistakes but I’m very proud and we are moving forward.”

Hoping for that playoff spot, the Lady Bucs next game is at Seaford on Tuesday, October 25 at 4pm.
