Dartmouth field hockey hopes dashed

Nov 5, 2019

The Dartmouth High School field hockey team’s championship hopes ended on Saturday after a last-minute defeat in overtime by Plymouth North High School in Plymouth, MA.

The Indians were behind 1-0 at halftime, tied it up with only six minutes to go, then ultimately lost 2-1 in overtime.

Field hockey coach Beth Arguin said that it was a “hard-fought game all the way to the end.”

“They had a great season overall,” she noted. “Can’t take anything away from all that.”

Arguin added that she had “a great group of girls.”

“They fought hard,” she said. “They’re a tough team.”

Some spectators pointed out that the Plymouth team had three boys, while Dartmouth had none.

“It does change it a little bit,” said Arguin. “But boys played field hockey years ago, so it’s nothing new.”

The coach noted that although the three seniors on the team will be missed, there will be a strong core coming back next season.

“I’m looking forward to seeing what they can do next year,” she said.
