N.H. Field Hockey: WMR Grabs First Win Over Profile
Sports Correspondent

WHITEFIELD, N.H. -- Two equally young teams were after a first field hockey win and White Mountains Regional came out ahead of Profile, 3-1 on Tuesday.

"A nice win and good to get some goals. Three different girls scored their first varsity goal," said WMR coach Jeannine LaBounty. "We changed our formation a little bit to try to get more shots off and had good pressure early. Genna Truland and Emily Galasyn were more consistent for us. Until today, we'd given up 140 shots on goal and Abby Towne saved 118 of them. This is a trial-by-fire season."

The Spartans went after the goal that ended their scoreless streak on a sixth shot with 11 minutes gone. Tristan Enderson picked the ball from a crowd and brought it down to the end line. She whacked it across the goal mouth where Molly Aldrich, playing with a broken finger, directed it over the line.

The Pats rallied for a run downfield that gained a corner.

Within six minutes of the first goal, the Spartans struck again. From outside the circle, Enderson sent the ball into Gillian McCreedy for a push to Truland and a touch to Megan Wright, who finished. Profile went right downfield again.

By halftime, the Pats had four shots and five corners forcing Abby Towne to make four stops, while the Spartans launched 20 shots and six corners. Franconia Jones made 18 saves.

Seven minutes into the second half, Truland whacked in a feed from Emily Galasyn just inside the circle for the 3-0 lead.

With 15:14 left, the Patriots' sixth shot turned into a first goal of the season. Paige Coyle banged it through. Elana Lloyd at right mid was after the ball to help carry it all game.

Towne collected nine more saves and Jones 12 more stops. Corners were 6-0 for the hosts in the second half.

"They came to the ball with force and that sort of surprised us a bit," said Profile coach Rick Simmons. "We've been playing with that defense attitude because we have no subs. So we set some goals to put a push at this time or that time and it seemed to work.

"We're still trying to work a lineup as they are too. We're trying to build the right side and the two key positions are Mora Peterson and Paige Coyle. If they can control that center and we did a better job in the second half. We don't lose heart."

Profile (0-3) hosts Berlin on Thursday while White Mountains (1-4) hosts Laconia on Friday.
