BULLETIN: June 25, 2021 — Your national scoring champion strikes again

This afternoon, in her debut for the U.S. women’s indoor national team, Hope Rose, the graduating senior out of Harrisburg Central Dauphin (Pa.), kept on her torrid scoring pace, even on the hardcourt. She led the U.S. with seven goals in a 20-2 win over Guyana in pool play in the Pan American Hockey Federation Indoor Cup.

Ashley Sessa, who with Rose were added to the senior outdoor national team’s player pool just this week, knocked in five goals, while Elizabeth Yeager, who didn’t play a minute of varsity field hockey her senior year because her league was in COVID lockdown, added a hat trick. Ryleigh Heck, the Voorhees Eastern (N.J.) star who was the nation’s leading scholastic scorer in 2019, had a brace for the States, while Corinne Zanolli, the leading collegiate scorer from Stanford University, also added two. Madison Orobono, from your national champion North Carolina, had a single for the Americans.

The U.S. team, seeking a berth in the 2022 Indoor World Cup in Belgium, faces Canada this afternoon, then Argentina and Uruguay tomorrow. The Americans need to finish in either first or second in pool play to make the grand final on Sunday.
