The East Hampton field hockey team earned a key win over Southampton last week, emerging with a 1-0 road win in a game that helped it remain in the upper half of the Division II standings.

The Lady Bonackers sat in sixth place with a 7-3 record and 113.000 power points as of Tuesday morning. The top five Class B teams in Division II will make the playoffs, and the five teams sitting ahead of East Hampton in the standings were all fellow ‘B’ teams. There are 10 Class B teams and four Class C teams in Division II. The top two Class C teams will make the ‘C’ playoffs.

Hanna Medler was the hero for East Hampton in the crucial win over Southampton, which came into the game ranked lower than the Lady Bonackers. Medler scored the game’s only goal off an assist from Anna Hugo with 1:12 left in the first half. East Hampton had only two penalty corners and three shots on goal for the game, but made the most of its chances. Southampton, meanwhile, had 10 corners and eight shots on goal. Tia Weiss made six saves for East Hampton.

Back on October 2, East Hampton shut out Babylon, 3-0. Cate Wicker had two goals and an assist, while Olivia Jarrett also scored, and Medler and Olivia O’Neil each had assists. Weiss needed to make only one save for the shutout win.

East Hampton was scheduled to host Shoreham/Wading River (6-4) on October 9 and visit Greenport/Southold (1-9) on October 11 for a 4:30 p.m. game before traveling to Harborfields (7-3) on October 16 for a 4:30 p.m. game. The Lady Bonackers will close the regular season at Hampton Bays (3-9) on October 18 at 5:45 p.m.

Southampton

The Lady Mariners suffered back-to-back 1-0 losses last week that dropped them to 4-6 on the season and into 10th in the Division II standings. The 1-0 home loss to East Hampton on October 4 came a day after a 1-0 home loss to Bayport/Blue Point. The Lady Mariners played better in the loss to Bayport than they did in their first meeting with the Lady Phantoms on September 20, when they lost, 6-0.

“We had three corners and they had four so we paced with one of the top teams in the league very well and I saw a lot of improvement and things to be happy about,” head coach Jackie Trelease said. She pointed out that she is only losing one senior to graduation this year, so she was happy to see that kind of improvement from her young team. Southampton was scheduled to visit second-place Miller Place (9-2) on October 9 and host first-place Rocky Point (9-2) on October 11 at 6 p.m. before visiting Hampton Bays (3-9) on October 16 at 5:45 p.m. and closing out the regular season at Pierson (4-6) on October 18 at 4 p.m.

Pierson

The Lady Whalers have a losing record, but are still the top team in Class C within Division II, sitting ahead of Port Jeff (5-6), Babylon (1-10) and Greenport/Southold (1-9) in the standings. Pierson took a 4-1 home loss against Rocky Point on October 2, but rebounded with a 1-0 win at Port Jeff two days later. Additional information on those games was not available at press time.

Pierson was scheduled to visit Harborfields (7-3) on October 9, visit West Babylon (7-5) on October 11 at 4 p.m., host Greenport/Southold (1-9) on October 12 at 4:30 p.m., visit Miller Place (9-2) on October 16 at 6 p.m., and close out the regular season at home against Southampton (4-6) on October 18 at 4 p.m.

Hampton Bays

The Lady Baymen moved to 3-9 on the year after a 2-1 overtime win over Greenport/Southold on Friday. Sophomore Tara Brochu was the star for the Lady Baymen, assisting on the first goal for her team, scored 
by Kailyn Havens, and providing the winning goal in overtime. Hampton Bays was scheduled to visit Sayville (6-5) on October 9, host Babylon on October 10 at 5:45 p.m., host Southampton (4-6) on October 16 at 5:45 p.m., and finish the regular season at home against East Hampton (7-3) on October 18 at 5:45 p.m.
