On Friday, October 19th, the varsity field hockey team had their senior day game against Ridgefield on the DHS stadium. As it was their last home game for the regular season, senior day was celebrated. All the seniors received a bouquet of flowers just before the game began. Ridgefield put up a good fight, but Darien were able to come out on top with a 2-0 win.
The teams came out strong and were battling it out. Both defensive lines were being pressured. 12 minutes in to the first half the first goal was scored by junior Molly Hellmen. 15 minutes in to the second half senior Shea van den Broek scored the second goal. Darien held off the Ridgefield offense well, never allowing any goals to be scored.
“I think coming off the Wilton win was huge for us, and it helped to spark our offense at the perfect time as we go into post season” says Hellmen. Senior day wasn’t the only thing being celebrated!
Come support the girls in their next game on Friday, October 22. This will be the FCIAC quarterfinals, and it will be on the DHS stadium at 3:30.
