Messalonskee field hockey cruises past Hampden Academy in Class A North quarterfinalAutumn Littlefield tallies hat trick for Eagles...“Definitely working together, passing, communication and our quickness,” Messalonskee head coach Katie McLaughlin said. “We like to move.”The Eagles’ strategy was pretty simple Wednesday: Dominate possession and take advantage of scoring opportunities. Messalonskee jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first half, with goals by Littlefield, Quirion and Rylee Poulin. The Eagles had a 12-2 shot advantage in the half, with a 7-1 advantage on penalty corners.“I think the really important thing that we focus on is making sure that we stay intense the whole time,” Littlefield said. “Make sure we continue to control the level of play in the game, make sure we don’t get too caught up in who we’re playing and just play the same way and play our game the whole time.” ... rterfinal/
