Sacred Heart Greenwich shuts out visiting King in an FAA field hockey matchup

Sacred Heart senior captains Caroline Nemec and Erin Griffin have been instrumental to the team’s success.

The Sacred Heart Greenwich field hockey team posted its second straight shutout, defeating visiting FAA foe King School, 5-0, on Wednesday. The Tigers entered the game off a 4-0 victory against Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child, a team they beat at home on Saturday.

Against King, the Tigers scored four goals in the first quarter, then added a second-quarter tally. Delfina Gonzalez Lobo opened the scoring, tallying off an assist from senior co-captain Caroline Nemec. Freshman Ainsley Clough gave Sacred Heart a 2-0 advantage, scoring off a pass from Nemec.

Nemec then scored Sacred Heart’s third and fourth goals, making it 4-0. In the second quarter, Gonzalez Lobo sealed the Tigers’ scoring with a goal.

“Today’s game was a great game to help develop our skills by connecting our passes and moving together,” Sacred Heart captains Caroline Nemec and Erin Griffin said. “We were able to move the ball up and down the field both offensively and defensively.”

Said Sacred Heart coach Alex Gheorghe: “Now we are focusing on the Saturday game on the road against Milton.”
