The King Philip Girls Hockey Team came out on top in a hard fought battle, Saturday night, with Medway-Ashland, winning 4-1.
Olivia McCarthy opened scoring late in the first period, finishing off a rebound from a Katie Crowther shot from the point. Nicole Connor scored her first of the season 10 minutes into the second period. After receiving a pass at the point Connor moved to the center of the ice where she let a wrist shot rip that found the top corner of the net. Liz Furfari closed the second period with her 2nd goal of the season, driving hard to the net and slipping the puck between the goalies legs.
In a third period that had nearly as many penalty minutes as game minutes, Medway-Ashland brought the game within 2 goals, but that is as close as it would get. Furfari added her 2nd goal with three seconds remaining to seal the win for KP. Lili Potts had a great game in net to secure her 2nd win of the season.
KP moves to 2-1 on the season and takes on Ursuline this Wednesday.
