FR Wins Field Hockey Tournament
Forbes Road survived an eventful journey September 7 to Big Spring, shutting out Bishop McDevitt and then the host Bulldogs to win the Big Spring tournament. “We were waiting to leave early and had no bus, so we ended up a bit late,” Cardinal coach Carol Cline said. “Then when we got closer there was a detour. We had our hearts set on winning this gold medal, so we hoped our day didn’t progress as such. Once we got off the bus we were anxious to play and the kids did an outstanding job.” Kiersten Cline led the charge with 5 goals and 3 assists, while teammates Brittany Truax (3 goals), Shania Gelvin (1 goal, 4 assists) and Malea Truax (2 goals, 1 assist) were also dominant for the Cardinals (4-0). Forbes Road outshot its opponents 74-2, forcing Bishop McDevitt goalie Emily Dempsey to save 37 shots in game No. 1. Olivia Hall saved the only shot on net she faced all day.
