June 21, 2007 — Get your tickets now

Saw this on a preliminary field hockey schedule on the Internet yesterday:

Oct. 6, 2007 — Wyoming Seminary vs. Eastern at McAleer Stadium

What a match this should be. Wyoming Seminary, the defending Pennsylvania Class AA champions, has the best attacking midfield in the country with Kelsey Kolojejchick, Kat Sharkey, and Devon Gagliardi.

Eastern counters with the nation’s leading returning single-season goal-scorer in Jessica Allen, defensive stalwarts Melanie and Hannah Dawson, and goalkeeper Nicole Barry.

Oh, sure, there are other good matches this field hockey season. The Warwick Invitational (Lititz, Pa.), Sally Nyborg Memorial (Baltimore), the Falcon Classic (Hummelstown, Pa.), and Gateway Invitational (St. Louis, Mo.) will have their fair share of dream matchups.

But this one should be an amazing game. And two weeks later, Eastern ventures back to Emmaus (Pa.), site of the team’s only loss  the past eight years.
