    District III Quarterfinal Playoffs

    State College @ Lower Dauphin, Hummelstown, PA
    Wednesday, November 4, 2020

    The number 8 seed, State College Field Hockey (8-4-1), as the District VI Champion, traveled to Hummelstown to play the number 1 seed, Lower Dauphin Falcons (12-0-0) in the District III quarterfinals. State College had a slow start in the first quarter and was unable to connect on their passing game. Lower Dauphin capitalized on that opportunity and dominated possession. LD had 6 penalty corners in the first quarter and on one of those corners, with 10:03 remaining, Lauren Hunter scored on a shot to put LD ahead 0-1. Despite nine shots on goal during the first quarter, SC’s senior Goalkeeper, Bayla Furmanek, saved all but one of them, giving SC a chance to turn things around. In the second quarter, SC held LD to 4 shots on goal, but LD was able to capitalize on three of them. With 13:27 on the clock, Lauren Hunter passed to Emmy McCulley who knocked the ball in the cage. Then at 9:48 LD’s Alexa Shaffer scored on a penalty corner with an assist from Paige Bitting. The fourth goal of the game came when LD’s Abby Lauer scored on a shot in the circle with 3:46 remaining in the second quarter. After the half, SC began getting some traction while moving the ball and improved their energy on the field. They were also able to keep Lower Dauphin from scoring or even getting any shot on goal or penalty corners. Although SC was awarded two penalty corners during the third quarter, they were unable to convert. During the fourth quarter State College began passing more effectively, but still had trouble moving the ball into the circle. The final goal of the game came with 1:23 remaining. LD was awarded a penalty stroke and Paige Bitting scored on Fumanek who narrowly missed the ball to end the game SC-0, LD-5.

    Following the game, State College’s Head Coach Sharon Herlocher said, “I’m so proud of our 8 seniors and the way they led this team. They adapted and kept this team focused, growing and mostly caring for each other through a season filled with incredible uncertainty.”

    “Lower Dauphin is a strong program and undefeated for a reason. Our goalie, Bayla Furmanek, continued to be a rock for us and gave us a fighting chance. We just had a difficult time getting our attack going. We had moments, but not enough to really compete tonight. Our program is growing and playing in games like this makes us stronger.  We’ll learn from it. It was a great season, one that was filled with memories to cherish forever. Thanks seniors.”

CD continued to work the ball up the field and near the end of the third quarter, CD earned a penalty corner and Hannah Guarante inserted the ball to Hope Rose who scored with 2:34 remaining.

    State College v Cumberland Valley, SCAHS North Turf Field
    Wednesday, October 21, 2020

    State College Field Hockey hosted Cumberland Valley on the SCAHS North Turf on Wednesday night. This was a rematch against CV as one of only two teams SC lost to earlier this season. From the beginning of the game both teams fought to control the ball with a fast-paced attacking game and strong ball movement. After battling for control in the first quarter, CV was the first to strike when, with 11:30 remaining in the second quarter, Alyssa Hoffman scored on an assist from K.K. Sauve to put CV up 0-1. State College quickly answered as Maddie Tambroni drove a hard corner shot toward the goal. The ball was deflected by CV’s goalkeeper, Grace Meinke, and State College’s Maddy Shomo, as she has several times during the season, deflected the ball into the cage to tie the game 1-1. Despite SC’s ball movement and strong defensive play during the third quarter, with 4:12 on the clock, CV’s Taylor Whitehead passed the ball to teammate Ami Mattingly who scored again to put CV up by one.  SC continued to fight and dominate possession during the fourth quarter when finally with only 2:45 remaining in the game, Rebecca Bonness drove the ball into the circle and scored on a powerful reverse shot to tie up the game 2-2. At the end of the fourth quarter the game remained tied and went into a 15 minute, 7v7 OT. Both teams had opportunities to score during OT, but SC dominated play and had 6 shots to CV’s one shot. At the end of regulation play, neither team was able to score and the game ended in a tie, SC 2 – CV 2. SC had 7 penalty corners, 12 shots on goal and 7 goalkeeper saves to CV’s 9 penalty corners, 9 shots on goal and 10 goalkeeper saves.

    SC Field Hockey played against Carlisle High School and dominated possession as they began the first quarter. With 10:15 on the clock, Emma Barlett passed the ball to a wide-open Rebecca Bonness who drilled a shot into the cage for the first goal of the game. Although Carlisle had trouble moving the ball past the 50 yard line, it wasn’t until the second quarter that State College scored another goal, when Rebecca Bonness hit a long reverse shot into the top of the goal at the 12:05 minute mark to put SC up 2-0. The third goal was scored by Maddy Shomo after a corner was called at the end of the third quarter. Maddy scrambled for the ball after the corner began and knocked the ball into the cage after it rebounded off the Carlisle goalie, Olivia Renault’s, pads. Calisle fought back but was never able to stop State College’s passing game and with 13:29 on the clock, Phebe Herlocher drove the ball to her teammate, Jena Zeiler, who redirected it into the goal. State College dominated the game with 17 shots on goal and 14 penalty corners and although they had several more opportunities to score, were unable to convert and ended the game with a final score of 4-0. State College is now (2-0) for the season and will play Newport for their Senior Day on Saturday, October 3 at Memorial Stadium.

    State College v Chambersburg, State College, PA (Season Opener)

    September 28, 2020

    SC Field Hockey played Chambersburg High School at the newly renovated Memorial Field for State High’s season opener. This season’s biggest change, in addition to the restrictions due to COVID, is the move from two 30-minute halves to four 15-minute quarters by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Field Hockey Rules Committee. 

    Chambersburg came out strong in the first quarter and with 12:19 remaining in the first quarter, number 23, Ashlyn Barton of Chambersburg, scored the game’s first goal. State College fought back, and Olivia Miller tipped a shot from Rebecca Bonness into the goal at 8:34 to tie the game 1-1. State High turned up the heat in the second quarter as they battled Chambersburg for possession. Rebecca Bonness had a strong shot on goal that was blocked by the body of a Chambersburg player and was awarded a penalty stroke, so with 4:17 remaining in the second quarter Rebecca Bonness scored on the stroke to take State College up by one.  State College continued to pressure Chambersburg’s defense and with 13:13 remaining, Phebe Herlocher hit a hard shot to the back of the cage for State High’s third goal. Chambersburg tried to turn the tide, but was unable to stop the ball from moving through the center of the field and before the end of the third quarter with :26 seconds remaining, Maddie Tambroni passed the ball to Rebecca Bonness who scored her second goal of the game. It was 4-1 at the beginning of the 4th quarter and State College continued to improve their passing game around the struggling Chambersburg defense. Finally, at 8:15 Nicole Zeiler put the ball in the back of the cage to make it 5-1 for the final score.
