High School Sports Review: Chancellor Dominates James Monroe Dramatically For Battlefield Tournament Title | High school

0


Field hockey teams Chancellor and James Monroe left it all on the pitch in another classic clash between the top two teams in the Battlefield District.

This one took a little longer to find a winner. Two overtime periods and 11 rounds of 1-on-1 tiebreakers to be exact before the Chargers (16-1) take the upper hand to claim the district tournament title.

After the first two rounds of five shooters, the tiebreaker changes to a sudden win format. Goalkeeper Chancellor Regan Bestick opened the 11th round with a save, then twin sister Kaitlyn put her chance to win aside.

Regan Bestick, who finished with nine saves in regulation and overtime, put in the winning moment after saving seven consecutive 1-to-1 tie-breaking attempts by the Yellow Jackets (15-3).

After the scoreless game at half-time, Celie Constantine scored in the third quarter to give JM a 1-0 lead.

Chancellor’s Ella Newman tied at 1-1 midway through the fourth quarter, fending off a Lindsey Loar assist.

The tiebreaker first round ended 3-3, and it stayed that way throughout the second five-shooter series, setting the Bestick sisters up for their winning moments.

In Thursday’s semifinals, Chancellor sent Eastern View 3-0. Loar, Ellie Byram and Caitlyn Bergmann each scored assists for Byram, Ashley Coleman and Kaitlyn Bestick.
