MANCHESTER — Burr and Burton field hockey defeated Woodstock 2-1 on Tuesday.

Woodstock started the scoring when Norah Harper scored off a pass from Sophia Yates and Natalie Parent with a little over eight minutes left in the first quarter.

BBA’s Maggie Crabtree scored on an assist from Annabelle Gray on a penalty corner two minutes later.

Gray scored early in the third quarter off a cross from Perrin Marion to give the Bulldogs the lead.

Mac Thuermer had two saves for BBA, Woodstock’s Audrey Every saved seven shots.

BBA dominated a large portion of the game, (eight penalty corners to Woodstock’s three), but Woodstock definitely had some good chances as well. Lauren Barrows at center back and Katie Crabtree at sweeper kept the Woodstock attack from amounting to much. As evidenced by the scoring, Gray was instrumental in making things happen in the offensive end, as was Perrin Marion.

BBA’s record is now 7-5-1. They play again at noon on Saturday at Bellows Falls.
