Hanover Survives Atlee in Field Hockey....

A quick start, a long time of defense, and a second wind.

That was the winning formula for Hanover at home Wednesday evening as they defeated Atlee in field hockey.

A 2-2 tie was not settled in overtime, and Hanover won 2-1 on strokes.

The Hawks scored both their goals within the first ten minutes of regulation, holding a 2-0 lead at halftime.  But the Raiders (7-2, 9-3) came out with a much higher level of energy and intensity, scoring early in the second half, then tying the game in the final 10 minutes, forcing extra time.

It was the Hawks with the surge in overtime, spending most of the period in their offensive zone, but unable to score the winning goal.

The Hanover win gives Lee-Davis an advantage in the Capital District regular season title race with two weeks left in the schedule.
