The field hockey team played their hearts out on Nov. 1. The team beat Mountain View High School by a score of 3-0. Mountain View played very well against the team, owning the shot totals 14-3.

“It was very tough,” Stafford coach Robin Woodie said. “The athletes are very talented and skilled. They give it their all. We knew that it wasn’t going to be easy, and the girls were prepared.”

Playing Mountain View brought a little extra to the table, especially when it was for the 5D Regional Championship trophy. The coaches and players knew that they’d have to bring just a little more when they played them.  

“They’re all very athletic, and they’re all are very good players and have played with for a long time,” said Hannah Lansford, senior left forward. “They’re very athletic and competitive.”

Games played against Mountain View often finish up with a memory that the seniors will never forget.  Mountain View games are exciting and nail-biting every time because no one knows what will happen next.

“My greatest memory against Mountain View would be the second time when Morgan got the game-winning goal, and she just whipped around with the biggest grin on her face, and she just started sprinting at us,” said Kinsley Greenlaw, senior center defender.  “They’re not a bad team. They’re a good team.”

This year’s set of four seniors have definitely encountered multiple occasions versus their in-county rival.  Both teams have had many great matches between each other in recent years.

“Every game that we go into against Mountain View, is a tough game, but it’s one of the most enjoyable ones because it’s always good competition,” said Morgan Arthur, senior right midfielder. “It makes us really come together as a team and realize the importance of working with each other, rather being individual.”

Next up for the team is a home matchup against the Region C runner-up Stone Bridge Bulldogs this Tuesday, Nov. 6, at 5:30 p.m. The cost is $10.

“The atmosphere is very team-oriented, and we always work to play together because we know that that is something that we have to do in order to win against a team like Mountain View,” said Sharia Hughes, senior left defender.
