Severna Park High School’s field hockey team is off to an impressive start.
Monday night’s 1-0 win over Broadneck capped off a 3-0 opening stretch of the 2013 season for the Falcons. Earlier this season, Severna Park topped Harford County field hockey powerhouse Fallston 2-0, and Bethesda Chevy-Chase 1-0.
Jessica Valvano’s second-half goal sealed the 1-0 victory over Broadneck Monday night, The Capital Gazette reported.
Last year, Severna Park started off the regular season with a loss to rival Broadneck. Monday night’s victory gives the Falcons the start they need if they expect to once again be a contender for the state title.
The Capital Gazette reported that Monday’s game was a defensive battle between the county rivals, which is a trend that has continued throughout the opening of the 2013 season for the Falcons. Severna Park has yet to surrender a goal in its first three games.
The Falcons next matchup comes on Wednesday at Northeast High School.
