HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. Scarsdales field hockey co-captains Kiki Yawer and Julia Mayer stood side by side after Mondays 0-0 tie at Hastings and agreed that the Raiders lack of scoring so far this season can be fixed.
Were getting the ball there, but we havent been able to make our shots, Yawer said. You dont have that many chances to score, so we have to be able to take shots when we have them. It just seems like we get the ball in front of the goal and then hesitate or dont make a good enough shot.
The Raiders moved smartly up and down the Burke Estate Field throughout the game and had 11 corners to just one for Hastings. But despite the opportunities in the offensive zone, Hastings defense and a slight hesitation on the part of Scarsdales offense extended the scoring drought.
Weve had two 0-0 ties, Mayer said. We have a good defense and we move the ball into position. Were just not hitting the shots we should hit. I think we can be more aggressive and the goals will come. But we have to score goals to win games.
The Raiders will get their next chance to score a goal and win a game today (Tuesday) at Pelham High School at 4:30 p.m.
