Field Hockey: Sleepy Hollow runs unbeaten streak to eight
SLEEPY HOLLOW — Pearl River coach Melissa Heyde has a distinct memory of playing Sleepy Hollow during her high school career at Somers.
"We were playing Sleepy Hollow and we beat them 15-0 for Liz Gnida's 200th win," Heyde said.
How times have changed. Teams can no longer assume that playing Sleepy Hollow will yield a victory. Instead, Sleepy Hollow has been collecting its share of wins and, in the process, resuscitated the field hockey program.
Senior Maggie Schnog recorded a hat trick yesterday as Sleepy Hollow closed the regular season with a 6-0 victory over Pearl River.
Sleepy Hollow concluded the regular season with a 9-3-4 mark and earned its second consecutive sectional berth. Sleepy Hollow went 5-0-3 in its last eight games, including a 3-0 win over Mahopac and a 1-1 tie with Putnam Valley.
"This has been a crazy four years," Schnog said. "Our goal our freshman year was just to score a goal. Now this is amazing.
"Today was bittersweet in that we're happy we're moving on, but we all love to play field hockey."
Before the game, Sleepy Hollow athletic director Chuck Scarpulla honored the seniors with a special ceremony. It was appropriate considering what has been accomplished by the 11 seniors: Anna Oliva, Lindsay Zekus, Angela Martello, Roza Moshi, Christine Angevine, Chelsea Schoen, Emma Venturini, Ashley DelMonaco, Aileen McGee, Melissa Smutek and Schnog. They started together as freshmen and won just one game.
"It was really nice," Moshi said about the pregame ceremony. "We're like a family and worked hard to get here."
Sleepy Hollow rebounded from what it felt was a sub-par performance in a 0-0 draw with Panas with two quick Schnog goals.
Sleepy Hollow earned the game's first penalty corner, and Schnog responded. She picked up the rebound of an Angela Martello shot and opened the scoring at the 2:30 mark. Jackie Mottola, who scored a second-half goal, fed Schnog for her second goal 59 seconds later.
"The last game we didn't play that well so the first goal got us excited and fired up," Schnog said.
Sleepy Hollow coach Kelly Cronin saluted her seniors late in the game, putting them on the field together for the final five minutes.
"We all really appreciate what coach (Cronin) did and has done for us," Moshi said. "We all think highly of her."
Heyde had high praise for Cronin, with whom she coaches in the Futures Program. Heyde planned on pointing out to her players what Sleepy Hollow has achieved.
"Kelly has such enthusiasm and knowledge of the game," Heyde said. "This is something we just talked about. She told me this is where she was three years ago. Seeing that keeps us going and hopefully we can do the same here at Pearl River.
"My girls worked hard this season, stayed positive and never gave up. From Aug. 28 to now, they are better players." (posted 10/25/06)
