Valley Sports Report
SPENCER Senior Kiera Benjamin and 8th-grader Rihanna Lawrence each scored their first career goals to lead S-VE to it first win of the season, a 2-1 decision over Newark Valley here Tuesday afternoon in Section IV, Division III field hockey action.
The girls had a great rebound from our disappointing loss last night, said longtime coach Maggie Childs, whose Lady Panthers dropped a 5-0 decision to Marathon at SUNY Cortland Monday.
It was an excellent game, as we passed the ball well and had a lot of hustle even after a long game yesterday, she noted.
I was pleased with the play of all the girls and I believe everyone stepped up their game which paid off in a win, added Childs.
Benjamin, who hasnt played field hockey since her freshman year, and Lawrence both found the net in the first 30 minutes to help S-VE to a 2-0 halftime lead.
S-VE, now 1-4, returns to action Friday when it hosts Marathon.
