2016.10.17 Field Hockey: Briar Woods @ Woodgrove

Ashburn, VA (October 17, 2016) – All indications are that the inaugural first season of high school field hockey in Loudoun County will be seen as a huge success. The season will wrap up over the next two days with final matches played across the county. Hopefully, the trend of double-headers will continue next season.

The four teams playing tonight showed marked improvement from the first games played less than two months ago. The chance to see Briar Woods, Broad Run, Loudoun County and Woodgrove in one night was priceless.

Chas Sumser Photography was there to capture the action and posted a separate gallery of photos from each game.

Game 2: Woodgrove 2 - Briar Woods 1

In the nightcap, both teams were among the very best teams in the county. Briar Woods held a slim 1-0 lead at halftime, but Woodgrove came out with renewed energy and clearly had command of the field in the second half. A goal midway through, and a game-winner with three minutes remaining did the trick, and the result was a huge win for the Wolverines.
