MONDAY NEWS: Field Hockey Starts, NBC12 and WHAN Radio Join Forces for High School Football Fridays!

The 2013 Field Hockey season officially got underway Monday with three county teams facing early road tests.

The Atlee Raiders, looking to rebound from a 10-7 season, fell behind early at Mills Godwin, but tied the match with 14:52 to go on a goal from Hayley Anna and took the lead once and for all with 3:10 to go on a goal from Jasmine Zollar as Atlee held on for a 2-1 victory.

Meanwhile, Hanover started on the road against perennial power Midlothian, falling 3-1 in a hard-fought match. Patrick Henry traveled to Azalea Avenue and came away with a season opening 2-1 win over Henrico. Two of three victories for Hanover County to open 2013.

Lee-Davis looks for a measure of revenge Tuesday afternoon when they open their season hosting Douglas Freeman, the team that eliminated their from last year's Central Region tournament, at 5pm. We will LIVE tweet from the L-D/Freeman showdown!
