Morrison lifts Bears to win


STONINGTON — Elizabeth Morrison scored on a 2-on-1 breakaway early in the game for the first and only goal in the Stonington High field hockey team’s 1-0 non-league victory against Branford Saturday.

Morrison’s goal came 3 minutes, 38 seconds into the contest.

Stonington’s Molly Crowley made a steal in the defensive end and passed to Morrison at midfield ahead of all the Branford defenders. Morrison sped up the field, passed to Casey Williams in the scoring circle and then received a pass back from Williams before she beat Branford goalie Jessie Severino for the goal. It was Morrison’s team-leading 15th goal.

Stonington improved to 9-1, while the traditionally-strong Hornets fell to 5-7. Each team had one goal nullified during the game.

“Branford had a goal off a penalty corner when one of their players sent a high shot just under the top post,” Stonington coach Jenna Tucchio said. “The referee called it a ‘dangerous shot’ and nullified the goal because the shot was from too far out to elevate the ball that high. We also had a goal waved off when Laura Hultgren scored off a penalty corner. The official said the ball never left the circle. We’ll have to look at the film for that one. It was quite a good, back-and-forth game. We had three or four breakaways after the first score.”

Stonington outshot Branford, 16-12, and held an 8-6 edge in penalty corners. Severino made 15 saves for Branford; Annie Knizeski made 12 for the Bears’ shutout.

“It’s always a good win to beat Branford,” Tucchio said. “There record is not what it usually is, but they come from a strong conference (Southern Connecticut Conference). It’s difficult to hang on defensively and hold them scoreless after you score so early.”

Stonington plays at East Lyme 3:45 p.m. Tuesday.
