Girls varsity field hockey secures the win over EGR 2-0

Fresh off of its State Championship from last year’s season, Forest Hills girls varsity field hockey team has started their 2018 season off strong. They’ve had a total of five games and those have been against Dexter, Cranbrook, Marian, Sacred Heart, and big time rival, East Grand Rapids. The field hockey team now has a record of 3-2 and has been moved into Division 1.

The Forest Hills field hockey team consists of girls from all three Forest Hills schools, Rockford, Grand Rapids Christian, and Grand Haven. This year’s team has a variety of talent on both the offensive side and defensive.

Last night, Forest Hills battled against rival East Grand Rapids on the road to play their fifth game of the season. The game against EGR was expected to be more difficult because of the fact that the Pioneers are the biggest competition for Forest Hills this season. However, that was not the case, as the FH offense put its best foot forward and kept the ball on the side of the EGR goal for the majority of the game.

Forest Hills applied constant pressure on the Pioneer defense, taking 15 shots on goal and making 2 of them. FHE senior Rain Tarango scored the first goal, followed by FHC senior Madisyn Bunke scoring the second.

Defensively, FH kept the ball out of scoring position and helped the team to secure the big win over EGR.

The 3-2 record for FH is a valiant start on the road to States yet again. They face off for their next games on Saturday, September 8 against both Mercy High School and Hartland High School at Forest Hills Central.
