Bergen County tournament
FIELD HOCKEY:Dwight-Englewood gets long-awaited county tournament win
|Dwight-Englewood senior Sydney Zahn.
ENGLEWOOD – It has been a rough few years for the senior class of the Dwight-Englewood field hockey team. Winning games has not come easy and the Bulldogs have not seen any success in the Bergen County Tournament with three consecutive first-round losses. With Monday’s game against Northern Valley/Demarest being their last shot to win a game in county tournament play, the Bulldogs relied heavily on senior leadership down the stretch to taste success. Do-everything senior Sydney Zahn scored the game-winner with 6:36 to play to give Dwight-Englewood a 2-1 triumph over fifth-seeded Northern Valley/Demarest in the first-round of the Bergen County Tournament in Englewood. Dwight-Englewood was in control throughout the first half with an early goal setting the tone. With two defenders on her, Emily D’Alessandro slipped a pass between them to Katie Anderson at the top of the circle. Anderson flicked a seeing-eye shot that got through a sea of players in front and passed a screened Demarest keeper to give the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead just over seven minutes into the match. MORE...
