Athletics Update: Impressive Week for Field Hockey

With a pair of games against talented opponents on the docket, it was a big week for Belmont Day field hockey. The team opened their week at home against an experienced BB&N squad and battled to a 1-1 tie. BB&N scored early and held off a frantic Belmont Day attack in the final minutes to hold onto the draw. Aria Goodpaster pushed across BDS’ lone goal with four minutes remaining in the contest. In a game where defenses shined, Belmont Day was anchored by Audrey Chuang who received support from Laurice Bandar and Nina Cohen-Perlmutter. Also of note was the play of Simone Pattisal who was active on the wing and helped move the ball up the field into the attacking zone.

The following day, Belmont Day welcomed Austin Prep to campus. In another evenly matched game, the Blue & Gold scored first and never looked back. Aleta Sandoski put AP on their heels after ripping one in on the opening drive and Belmont Day continued to apply pressure for the entire game. In the second frame, Aria Goodpaster added her second goal of the week and Olivia Garrity finished off the scoring late in the game to secure a 3-1 win. Once again, Audrey Chuang was a rock on D and was supported by Olivia Dawson and Siri Paulson. The team will look to keep it rolling next week against Fay.
