TOPSHAM — Mt. Ararat coach Kelly LaFountain talked about defending the far goal in the first half if her Eagles field hockey team won the coin toss.
With rain drenching the field by the second, and the goal area becoming as slippery as an ice hockey rink, the Eagles decided to shoot toward the “muddy” end first.
The strategy nearly backfired.
Edward Little cut Mt. Ararat’s two-goal lead in half with 10:05 remaining in regulation, and had several chances to tie things up. But the Eagles held on for 2-1 victory in KVAC action Thursday.
