Fair Haven Field Hockey Comes Up Short in Field Hockey Title Match
Fair Haven's outstanding run came to an end on Saturday as the Slaters fell to Montpelier 1-0 in the Vermont Division III Field Hockey championship game at Moulton Winder Field at the University of Vermont.
For the #1 ranked Solons it was their first field hockey championship since 1995.
The only goal Montpelier needed came off a penalty corner in the first half. Finley Torrens-Martin fed Milou Haegens who put the ball into the back of the cage for a 1-0 lead.
Fair Haven freshman goalie Tori Kelly was under heavy pressure the entire contest but did her best to keep the Solons from scoring more often.
Alana Williams was credited with a couple of defensive gems for the Slaters.
Fair Haven ends their solid season with a 9-7-1 mark. The Slaters are certainly a program on the rise and one to keep an eye on in the coming years.
Montpelier finishes 13-4.
