The Medfield Warrior Field Hockey team won a close game on Thursday over East Bridgewater 1-0.
After 23 shots and 20 penalty corners, Sophomore Collen Gair found the back of the net with four minutes remaining in the game to propel Medfield into the first round of the MIAA Tournament.
They will face undefeated 3rd seed Dover Sherborn on Saturday, Nov. 3 at 4 p.m. at Dover Sherborn High School.
Medfield dominated the game but the East Bridgwater goalie, Lindsey Wolfe, made save after save stopping 22 of 23 shots. Carrie Cook, Medfield's goalie, made the save of the game stopping an East Bridgewater breakaway in the first half.
Finally, after all the offensive pressure, Senior Captain Lilly Beardsley set up the goal by feeding it to Colleen Gair for the win.
Also having a great game was Senior Tori Brown at center mid. She was all over the field and handled the ball well and made some super passes.
Medfield has a road game game on Saturday but it won't take long to get there -- it's at 4 p.m. at Dover Sherborn.
