Quakes Beat Panthers 6-1 [Brief]

The varsity women’s field hockey team started its season with an exhilarating win.
In their first game of the season, the varsity women’s field hockey team scored a decisive win against Pikesville High School.

On Thursday, August 29th, the Friends School varsity women’s field hockey team started off its season with a huge win against Pikesville High School! In a last-minute scrimmage, the Quakes scored six goals against the Panthers, while only giving up one. 

The team’s grit and aggression in the offensive circle led them to two goals in the first quarter, scored by Kennedy Stokes ‘24 and Samantha Wilkins ‘24. Going after the ball again and again, the team never gave up.

After a brief break between quarters, players maintained their high energy and cheered their teammates on. They scored another two goals in the second quarter, one by Laya Bubshait ‘25 and the other by Samantha. The team ran together and celebrated after every goal, before quickly resetting. 

At halftime, coach Schoen Oakes encouraged the team to maintain their vigor and drive in the second half. The team wanted to win badly, and you could tell. Despite players’ fatigue, they kept the ball on their offensive side for the majority of the third quarter, where Kennedy scored another goal.

After a few more shots, the team ended the game with their sixth and final goal, by Katherine Monk ‘24. When the buzzer went off, the hyped team ran to get their goalie, Hadynn Sund ‘27.

Although the team had a great win, players say they are still hungry, and determined to win many more games throughout the season.
