The field hockey team shut out Fountain Valley High School today 5-0. The game keeps the team undefeated, marking its fourth win in a row and third 5-0 shutout in a row.

Team captain Mia Reilly ’18 attributes the win to an improved level of play.

“I think that because our team is lucky to have so many good players this year that we are able to play at a much more sophisticated level than last year which is why we keep winning and doing so well,” Reilly said.

The team will play Newport High School on Thursday at home. Newport won the CIF title last year and Reilly said she considers them to be the Wolverine’s biggest competition for the title.

The team hopes to keep improving game on game to continue its winning streak.

“This game we overall took too long getting our passes off and needed to dribble less so hopefully we improve on that going forward,” Reilly said.
