Oct. 27, 2017 — Friday Statwatch for games played through Oct. 25

Good morning, and welcome to Friday Statwatch. Today, we take a look at what’s become my favorite statistical category since I started compiling national field hockey statistics a few years ago. That category is the 100-100 Club, which recognizes players who are not just good shooters, but who are excellent in the execution of set plays and pass plays in order to shake free teammates for easy goals.

This year, the 100-100 Club could nearly double in size. What had been a four-player group at the start of this season got its fifth member, the magician from Mount Joy Donegal (Pa.) Mackenzie Allessie, earlier this season, and just got its sixth member this past week thanks to a six-goal, two assist effort from the fine senior midfielder from Virginia Beach Frank W. Cox (Va.), Leah Crouse. Note that, in the below table, Gabby Andretta of Summit Oak Knoll (N.J.) is just four goals and two assists from joining this outstanding group (red = active players):

*– six-year varsity numbers

This being The Score-O Decade in American field hockey, it’s not surprising that we’re seeing more and more responsibilities for both scoring and setting up goal-scoring embodied in one person.

And, like we mentioned about the teams that had 68-goal scorers on their teams last week, those teams tend to be successful. All six of the 100-100 players (as well as Andretta) have won at least one state championship, and, with health and a little luck, the three actives could be on the way to the finals in their respective states.

So, here’s this week’s field hockey statistics from available sources. This includes, amongst others, amongst others, Advance Media, PennLive.com, LancSports.com, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, PhilaFieldHockey.com, and the Washington Post. It also includes data from the easy-to-use MaxPreps.com reporting tool, and I encourage readers to contact their coaches, athletic directors, and student managers so that they may register for and use the MaxPreps.com platform, and we encourage you to get your fellow teams as well as perhaps your conference, league, or your state governing body to enter field hockey information there, so that we can aim for as complete a statistical picture of the country as possible.
