Bears top Rams in opener


STONINGTON — Casey Williams and Molly Crowley each scored a goal to help Stonington High’s field hockey team open the Class S tournament with a 2-0 win against Old Saybrook on Tuesday.

The third-seeded Bears (15-2) now move to the quarterfinals where they will face No. 6 Haddam Killingworth (13-4) in a rematch of last year’s Class S championship game. The Cougars beat the Bears in the title game.

Both of Tuesday’s goals came in the first half as the Bears dominated the No. 14 seed. Stonington outshot Old Saybrook 21-0 and held a 16-0 advantage in penalty corners.

“We controlled the ball pretty well for most of the game and put a lot of pressure on their penalty circle. Their keeper did a great job. Our goal is always to not give up any penalty corners and we didn’t,” Stonington coach Jenna Tucchio said.

The Bears got on the scoreboard with 14 minutes, 42 seconds gone by in the game. Williams was able to put in a rebound of a shot that came from the top of the circle off a penalty corner. It was her 11th goal of the season.

Crowley scored her 17th goal when she was able to control a rebound of an Elizabeth Morrison shot and put it past Old Saybrook keeper Jill Murphy. That made it 2-0 with 16:36 elapsed.

Stonington will host Haddam-Killingworth on Thursday at 3 p.m. In addition to beating the Bears for the Class S title last season, the Cougars also eliminated Stonington from the state tournament in 2009 and 2010. HK beat No. 11 Lewis Mills 1-0 on Tuesday.

“Our goal is to get back to the state final and you have to beat whoever you play in the quarterfinal, but having it be Haddam-Killingworth definitely gives us a little extra motivation,” Tucchio said.
