Fri, 10/04/2019 - 8:15pm

Brooklyn Gaghan scored two goals as the Winthrop Ramblers went on to defeat the Boothbay Region Seahawks, 4-1, in field hockey at Perkins Field Friday, Oct. 4.

The game was tied at the half, 1-1, with Boothbay’s Chloe Arsenault scoring after her first shot was blocked by the Winthrop goalie. Arsenault’s goal came about 15 seconds after Gaghan had given Winthrop the 1-0 lead.

The Seahawks, now 5-5, played well against the South region-leading Ramblers, now 12-1, despite having no bench players.

Winthrop’s Hannah Duley made it a 2-1 game with a goal at 17:57 and the Seahawks couldn’t mount any offense in the second half as the Ramblers played well defensively. A goal by Maddie Perkins at 4:13 and Gaghan’s second goal at 2:16 provided for the final score.

Boothbay, currently in sixth place in Class C South, is scheduled to host Mountain Valley on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 3 p.m. in a make-up game postponed on Wednesday. The Seahawks will wrap up the regular season next week with games at Spruce Mountain on Wednesday, Oct. 9; at Oak Hill on Monday, Oct. 14; and at home against Dirigo on Wednesday, Oct. 16.
