Earlier in the week, the team lost to Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School, 4-0, and Walsingham Academy, 1.-0. The Oaks are 2-7-2 on the campaign.

The team plays St. Margaret’s at home at noon on Saturday.
The girls field hockey team dropped two games this week, 3-0 to Cape Henry on Thursday and 1-0 in overtime to Nansemond-Suffolk Academy on Tuesday.
The Oaks had the best of the play both in regulation and in overtime against Nansemond-Suffolk, but just couldn’t get the go-ahead goal.
The girls threatened late in overtime, then saw the game shift in seconds on a breakaway by Nansemond-Suffolk for a goal with 2:13 remaining.
On Thursday, seniors Blair Hurley, Carter Kennedy, Mary Liz Lentz, Jordan Sibley, Zooey Vooss, and Mary Douglas Wilson were honored.
They played hard against perennial power Cape Henry, holding the Dolphins scoreless until a penalty shot in the last two minutes of the first half followed by another goal with seconds remaining in the half.
“We wanted to take them off their game and mess with their flow. We did that with equal, if not even a bit more, possession time during the game,” said Coach Taylor Kelly. “The result was an early time out by Cape Henry with on-field player frustration as well as some frustration and concern from the sideline. I am not sure that they were expecting our level of play and resilience.”
