Serving the scholastic field hockey and lacrosse community since 1998

June 20, 2021 — Half the usual

This time of year is not only the denouement of the scholastic girls’ lacrosse season, but it is also the time for the bi-state exhibition games between New Hampshire and Vermont.

Yeah, “games.” The lacrosse game between the New Hampshire all-stars and the Vermont all-stars took place yesterday with New Hampshire winning 19-5 over Vermont.

The field hockey game between the two states, however, is not taking place this year. Vermont has reportedly pulled out of the game, leaving the Granite Staters to organize a single senior all-star game this coming Saturday. The game, a fundraiser for a cancer facility, will take place at Amherst Souhegan (N.H.).

I’ve always been fascinated with the appearance of these two-state games on the schedule; they are unique in America when it comes to field hockey and lacrosse; no other state associations have all-star challenge games like this.

Hopefully, in a year’s time, the Vermont-New Hampshire field hockey will be held again.
