Behind two goals from senior Stephanie Lane, the Greenwich Academy hockey team posted a 4-2 win over Choate Rosemary Hall Wednesday at Chelsea Piers in Stamford.
The win marked the Gators’ first win against Choate in more than 10 years and raised their record to 2-1. Lane, who scored three goals in the team’s first game of the season, gave GA a 1-0 lead when she scored with 21 seconds remaining in the first period. The Gators took a 2-0 advantage on Lane’s tally with 14:30 left in the second period. After Choate knotted the score at 2 on two straight goals, Greenwich Academy took the lead for good at 3-2 with a second-period goal.
Senior Grace Schulze’s goal off a breakaway gave the Gators a two-goal cushion at 4-2 with less than four minutes remaining.
“It was a great goal,” GA assistant coach Erin Brawley said. “She deked the goalie and put the puck away. It was a really great goal.”
Senior Courtney DeNaut had 25 saves in goal for GA.
“They put a lot of pressure on us toward the end of the game and Courtney made some great saves,” Brawley said. “She stood on her head as always. She’s the backbone of our team. This was a phenomenal win for our team, which received contributions from everyone.”
Greenwich Academy travels to Millbrook School on Saturday.
