After a tough lose to St. Joseph’s of Maine, the first time in four games, the Castleton field hockey team bounced back to start a new winning streak. The Spartans returned to their home field the following weekend to blank Becker 2-0. Junior Carolyn Griggs scored both goals for Castleton in the first-half off from two Kayla Blank penalty corners.
Four days later, it was Blank who led coach Tammy Landon’s squad to victory against New England College. The junior scored Castleton’s two goals in the first half giving the Spartans a 2-1 halftime lead. The Spartans’ defense and goalie Trisha Clark held the Pilgrims to just three shots in the second half for the win.
Castleton defeated North Atlantic Conference opponents Lasell and Wheelock 3-2 and 6-0 respectively this past weekend to continue its momentum. With the wins, Landon’s team leads the NAC standings with a 3-0 conference record and 7-2 overall. The Spartans next host Elms in a conference match-up Saturday
