FRAMINGHAM – In the 20 years that Ellen Sowa has been coach of the Framingham High field hockey team, the Flyers have yet to defeat the Norwood Mustangs.
But yesterday, the Flyers defeated Norwood 2-1.
The game was a scoreless tie at halftime.
And then with 20 minutes left in the game, Framingham’s David Covarrubias scored to give the Flyers a 1-0 lead.
Norwood came back to score with about 11 minutes left, said Sowa.
“My team turned it up a notch and was playing awesome,” said Sowa.
With a little more than 9:30 left in the game, Covarrubias received the “ball off the insertion pas and passed the ball to Georgia Parker, who put what turned out to be the winning goal in the net,” said Sowa.
“We continued to play aggressive, and win the game for the first time in my Flyer coaching career,” said Sowa to Source.
Flyers goal Cameron Adler had 20 saves in the victory.
Sowa said Amy Phalen and Caroline Stacey had a “terrific game defensively,” said Sowa.
The Flyers next play the Warriors of Brookline High on the road on Thursday.
