Field Hockey avenges playoff loss against Newport Harbor

By Robbie Loeb

After getting knocked out of the CIF playoffs last season by Newport Harbor, the varsity field hockey team got their revenge in a 4-1 win on Thurs., Sept. 8.

Last year’s 0-1 overtime loss came in the semifinal round. Newport scored in the final seconds, eliminating Harvard-Westlake after their undefeated league season.

“Because they beat us last year, we definitely had a lot more spirit and conviction when we played them,” Taylor Lee ’13 said. “I was nervous because our team still had a few kinks, being new and everything, but I thought the game came easy because we played really well together.”
