Scarsdale Ties Mamoraneck 0-0
Kudos to Rapid Fire's goalie Emily Knapp for shuting out the Tigers.
It was a busy afternoon for Raiders goalie Emily Knapp, who made 18 saves. She had excellent support from a persistent defense that kept clearing the ball a second before the restless Tigers were able to get a stick on any deflections.

Disney Field Hockey Showcase
February 6 - 8, 2009
Congrats to the Disney Showcase Elite teams that had an outstanding tournament. Our Elite U16 team was undefeated. We were the only team to score against the eventual pool winner (who had 15 goals and only one against). Unfortunately, this 1-1 tie kept us from winning the U16 pool. And our Elite U19 team finished second of seven in our pool and we were the only team to score (twice) against the pool winner in an exceptional and equally matched competition. Congratulations again to all our players!
