Lynnfield field hockey falls to Manchester-Essex in overtime of Div. 4 quarterfinal

MANCHESTER ― It was a defensive battle from start to finish Saturday night in the Division 4 quarterfinal at Hyland Field, but in the end the No. 7 Lynnfield field hockey team couldn't hold on long enough in a 1-0 loss to No. 2 Manchester-Essex.

"I could not have asked for a better performance from the girls, they played great," said Lynnfield coach Samantha Pindara. "They followed the game plan, executed how they needed to and stayed in the game the whole way. Sometimes, good teams score and that's what happened against us."

While the Pioneers didn't get any goals in the game, they did get solid performances from the likes of Jacqui Carbone, Catherine Sweeney, Lauren Grava, Charlotte Radulski and a host of others.
