Raider field hockey gets fourth win on the season

The Middletown field hockey team picked up its fourth win of the season Thursday at Spring Grove, 2-0.

The Raiders stand at 4-10-1 on the season.

Paige Burger scored her first career goal vs. Spring Grove, and Marie Schopf scored minutes afterward on a breakaway, her fifth goal this season. Both goals were unassisted.

Goalkeeper Natasha Manfred didn’t touch the ball the entire game, according to head coach Sierra Lenker.

The team lost a hard-fought game to Bishop McDevitt on Oct. 1 in overtime, 2-1.

The game was scoreless until Middletown’s Fairnoh Koleh assisted Kiley Stoltzfus with 5 minutes left in the game.

McDevitt tied it up with 1:42 left to play, sending it into OT, and McDevitt scored less than 2 minutes in.

Manfred had 15 saves, and defender Morgan Pacheco had a few saves as well, Lenker said.

They lost 3-1 at Wyomissing on Monday despite dominating the stats in shots and offensive penalty corners, Lenker said.

Kiera Guckavan scored her sixth goal of the season.

The team was scheduled to play Milton Hershey at home on Tuesday and then York County School of Technology at home on Thursday, their last game of the season.
