This past Monday, with a 2-1 win over Woodstock, the SHS Field Hockey team beat out East Lyme for the title of ECC Champions.

Although the Bears have fewer losses than the East Lyme Vikings, the ranking for the ECC’s goes by a point system where a win is 2 points, a tie is 1 point, and a loss is 0 points. Because last week’s game against the Vikings went into overtime, the Vikings still gained a point for the tie after 60 minutes were played, even though they ended up losing. This caused them to have one more point than the Bears, which the Bears made up with their win against the Woodstock Centaurs on Monday.

The game was very close with Ellie Korinek scoring the first Stonington goal halfway through the first half of the game. Then in the second half, the Centaurs came up with a goal that tied the game, which was later made up by Miranda Arruda on a stroke with around 14 minutes left in the second half. The final score was 2-1, which led the Bears to their 32nd ECC Championship in the past 34 years.

The goal by Arruda in this game moved her up to third on the school’s all-time scorers list, behind Molly Crowley and Elizabeth Morrison. Along with this achievement many other SHS players were recognized for their ability with All-ECC awards. Miranda Arruda, Colette Dreher, and Maddy Cassell all received First Team All-ECC; Jillian Holland and Casey Boumenot received Honorable Mention awards; Daisy Williams received the Scholar-Athlete award; and Sarah Flakus received the Sportsmanship award.

The Bears begin their run in the state-tournament starting next Tuesday with a home game.
