On Tuesday, November 14th the Hingham Field Hockey team traveled to Canton for their Final Four tournament game against Redding Memorial. In fourth place, Hingham went against the number one seed, playing to fight for a spot in the Championship. 

This season, Hingham Field Hockey has broken all records by advancing past the second round of the Division 2 Tournament. Hingham moved up a division from the 2022 Field Hockey season, creating new competition. With new additions and returning players, Hingham almost went undefeated. With five winning allstars, Ryan Hallisey, Sienna Brackett, Lauren Armstrong, Haylen Wilson, and Lily Samoska, Hingham was predicted to be the Division 2 State Champions. The girls had an incredible season with eighteen wins, three ties, and one loss. 

Proud of her team, Coach Petrie has been coaching Hingham Field Hockey for many years and has never advanced further than the second round of playoffs. With her team’s accomplishments, she has been an incredible coach and has brought the girls extremely far. 

In the first half, Becca Kardoos, Hingham’s goalie, made countless saves and only let three of the seventeen shots on goal in the net. Kardoos played one of her best games all year and will return for her senior year in the 2024 season. During the first half, Hingham let in three goals, but played breathtaking defense and made it a hard fight for Redding Memorial. In the second half, Hingham unfortunately let up 2 more goals but had five shots on goal against Redding. Hingham also blocked up six out of the seven corners throughout the game, and three offensive corners themselves. Right forward, Sam Ruddick stated, “Redding Memorial was an amazing team and they played well. I am so proud of the whole team and will miss practicing at the Hingham turf every day.”

With a devastating loss, Hingham Field Hockey’s season came to an end but achieved many accomplishments and broke many records. The Red Army made an appearance at the Final Four game in Canton to support their friends and schoolmates. Forward, Emily Kiernan stated, “I am very sad that the season is over. The girls on the team are so welcoming and the whole team feels like one large family. Redding Memorial was an amazing team, but I am so excited for the 2024 season!”

The Hingham Harborwomen’s season sadly came to an end with a 5-0 loss. The team made it through four rounds of the tournament and will be back even more powerful next year.
