Aug. 31, 2019 — Setting the tone

Yesterday was the start of field hockey in hockey-mad Pennsylvania, and, as such, a number of interesting inter-conference matches took place yesterday.

But none so interesting as when Millersville Penn Manor (Pa.) took on Villanova Academy of Notre Dame de Namur (Pa.) in a rematch of a game played exactly 365 days ago.

Both of these championship-caliber sides came into yesterday’s match having fallen short of their team goals in 2018, as Notre Dame fell out of the PAISAA Tournament semifinals, and Penn Manor lost in the PIAA 3A Tournament quarterfinals to eventual champion Hershey (Pa.).

Yesterday, Notre Dame got a 1-0 win on a second-half penalty corner shot by Riley Gillen. Penn Manor gave a good effort on the day, but could not find the late equalizer.
