Bears pick up ECC win


GROTON — Stonington High’s field hockey team got back on track with a 2-0 win against Fitch in an ECC match on Friday.

Stonington (8-1, 8-1 ECC) had reeled off seven straight wins to start the season before stumbling in a 1-0 loss to Killingly on Wednesday. Fitch dropped to 3-6-2, 3-5-1 ECC.

Molly Crowley and Elizabeth Morrison provided the offensive fireworks for the Bears. Crowley scored her 10th and 11th goals — second only to Morrison’s 14. Morrison assisted both goals.

Crowley scored her first goal with 3 minutes, 36 seconds left in the first half. Morrison took a cross ball from the left, was covered and passed left. Crowley rammed home a shot from seven yards out.

Crowley scored again 10:45 into the 30-minute second half. She got the rebound of a strong Morrison shot and deflected it in.

The Bears dominated the game, outshooting the Falcons 19-1 and gaining a 22-1 advantage in penalty corners.

“We spent 90 percent of the game on our attacking side of the field,” Stonington coach Jenna Tucchio said. “We managed to keep it on our side of the field.

“It was a very slow game — the grass was very long. I never thought I’d say we were adjusting to the grass, but we have a new turf field. Fitch is one of the few who don’t.”

Stonington hosts Branford today at 4 p.m.

St. Rock drove the ball from about 35 yards away in the center of the field.

Stonington finished with eight shots as the teams played through 20 minutes of overtime. The Bears did not have many other quality chances.

Killingly (3-7-1, 2-4-1 ECC-Medium) did manage 11 corner kicks, while the Bears finished with eight. Stonington keeper Will Iorio made six saves. Stonington (7-3-2, 4-2-1 ECC-Medium) travels to New London Wednesday.
