Pelham field hockey takes league title


In a fitting end to a brilliant regular season, Pelham varsity field hockey has taken a league title for the first time since 2007. With a victory against Harrison High School, the Pelicans finish the season with a 5-1 in league record, narrowly beating Rye’s 4-1-1 record.

A defensive end headlined by captains Lindsay McNamara and Grace Liberatore managed to shut out opponents a shocking 12 total times. Over 16 games, goalie McNamara has let in a paltry 6 total goals, for a goal per game rate of less than .4.

On the offensive side, Pelham was led by captains Lucy Conway, Madelyn Dunbar, and Jenna Letizia. Through the 16 games, they scored a total of 59 times, for more than 3.5 goals per game. This includes 5 separate games with 5 or more goals, and 3 games where they had 8 or more goals

Sometime on Oct. 18, Section 1 in conjunction with SW Boces will release playoff seeding, play-in matches, and as much of a playoff schedule that they are able to. With a 14-2 record overall, and a 11-2 record in-conference, the Pelicans are likely to secure a top playoff seed, and won’t need to play in a play-in match.
