The FCIAC Semi-Finals proved to be successful for the hardworking players of the Varsity Girls Field Hockey team. The team has been preparing for this huge win and is has finally reached the finals! Darien High School started off strong by scoring three goals within the first half. All goals were scored by senior Shea van den Broek, captain of the team.
