On March 2, the Mustang Field Hockey team won their first game of the season vs. Fauquier 3-2, with Eleanor Gieser’s score with less than a minute on the clock. The girls traveled to Bealeton yesterday for a game against Liberty HS. They will play at home again on Tuesday against Kettle Run.
And the Justice High School Field Hockey is now 3-0 heading in the early part of their regular season, following up on their 6-0 season opening win over Annandale High School with a close, 4-3 victory against Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology on March 3 during the Wolves’ senior night. On Monday, the team extended its win streak to four games after escaping with a 1-0 road win over Hayfield High School. Junior Maria Papas is the leading scorer with five goals, followed by River Rupert and Samantha Schrecker with two goals each.
Out fast with a strong start, the Mustang Volleyball team is now 3-0 on the season.
On Thursday, the Mustangs took down Brentsville High School in three sets. On Monday the girls defeated William Monroe High School by a 3-1 margin in the largely empty new gym.
On Saturday, the Mustangs went 2-1 on the season with a 41-0 home-field win over Warren County Wildcats. The Mustangs pulled away early with a 55 yard touchdown run by Matt Teague, who later added two more touchdowns. Robert Silva scored another touchdown with a run, and two long passes from Evans Rice to Graham Felgar accounted for the rest of the Mustangs’ scores. Martin Craft went 5-6 on extra points.
Defensively, the Mustangs held strong with an overpowering effort led by Matt Teague on tackles. George Papadopoulos blocked a field goal attempt by Warren and Emmet Wood had a career first interception. The team has a bye next week and then travels to Central-Woodstock on March 19.
