SCARBOROUGH—The Scarborough field hockey program has produced some great teams in recent years, but the 2012 edition is turning into something truly special.
Wednesday evening, in a Western Class A quarterfinal round contest against eighth-ranked Thornton Academy, the No. 1 Red Storm quickly served notice that it had no intention of repeating last year's painful first round ouster by racing to a 1-0 lead just 3 minutes, 25 seconds in when senior Emily Bunting scored on a rebound. Four minutes later, sophomore Kristen Murray scored on a penalty corner and with 12:54 to go before halftime, a goal by senior Elly Walker on a penalty corner ensured a healthy 3-0 advantage at the break. A second goal from Walker off a corner in the second half ended the competitive phase of the evening, but there was still once piece of drama remaining.
