WOODSTOCK — Stonington High’s Elizabeth Morrison scored three goals and the Bears’ field hockey team closed the regular season with a 7-0 ECC win against Woodstock Academy Tuesday.
Morrison has 24 goals this season. She already owns the school record for goals in a season with 28 in 2011. Her 24 goals this season is the second-highest in program history. Billi-Jo Schacher had 23 in 1987.
Morrison also owns the school record for career goals at 77. Kathryn Tabor, who graduated in 1995, is second with 42.
Morrison scored 12 minutes into the first half. She added her second goal about 2 minutes into the second half and another about 9 minutes into the second half. The third goal was on a penalty stroke.
Meg O’Lari opened the scoring for the Bears in the first 3 minutes, finishing off an assist by Tia LaFrance Boyce. Molly Crowley’s goal less than a minute later made if 2-0. Morrision scored with an assist from Boyce and Megan Dreher closed out the first half scoring about 14 minutes in.
Dreher also scored in the second half.
“We are still trying to get ready for the state tournament,” Stonington coach Jenna Tucchio said. “We are still working on our passing game and making sure we are attacking the right areas.”
Stonington (14-2, 13-1 ECC) finished with 28 shots, while the Centaurs (2-14, 2-12 ECC) had four. Bears’ keeper Annie Knizeski finished with four saves.
Stonington, which lost in the Class S title game last season, will find out its pairings in this year’s tournament on Friday. The Bears will be hosting a home game on Tuesday.
