It was stellar defense, again, the helped Bohemia Manor push past cross-county rival North East in field hockey for a 1-0 victory to remain undeafeated with a record of 5-0. In fact, in five wins this season, the Eagles have only surrendered one goal.
For much of the game, the Indians were on the offensive in Bo Manor territory, but block after block, steal after steal and errant shot after errant shot took their tool of North East. The frustration mounted to the point North East standout Paige Buckworth slammed her stick to the ground after a missed shot. The disappointment reached it peak when a shot found the Bohemia Manor goal with a loud thud, only it was preceded by a referee's whistle for a violation.
Chani Samans scored the only goal for Bo Manor at 5:47 in the first half. Defense ruled the game from there on. Previously undefeated North East dropped to 3-1. Eagles coach Ashley Christy said she wasn't surprised to be sitting at 5-0 at this point in the season. "The drive that these girls have, nothing they do surprises me," said Christy. "Our goal was to take every game as it came, so now we will work on Patty Mill next."
