The Whaler field hockey team picked up their first win of the season Saturday afternoon with a 2-1 victory over Martha’s Vineyard. Nantucket head coach Dan Weber praised the defense of Mayson Lower, Abby Mason, and Aubrey Connors.

“Those three have a bunch of experience and they know where to be,” he said. “They know how to cover for each other. It is reassuring to have those three back there. It makes me feel really good on a regular basis.”
He said this trio makes it easier for his team to transition to offense. Sam Zadroga scored Nantucket’s first goal while senior captain Audrey Manning scored the eventual game-winning goal. The Whalers had a 2-0 lead at one point before the Vineyard scored a late goal.
Weber said he liked how both of his team’s goals were scrappy goals in front of the net. He and assistant coach Elizabeth Baraldi preached to their team between the first and second quarter to work the ball inside more. The Whalers maintained possession for most of the opening quarter, but kept their play to the outside without many threatening chances.
“I don’t think we came out exactly how we wanted but we ended up playing really well and kept the pressure on for most of the game,” Weber said. “The girls did a really good job of making the corrections we wanted them to make. I didn’t think we were bad in the first quarter, I just thought we were that much better in the second and third quarters.”
The Whalers travel to Monomoy to take on the Sharks Monday, September 19 at 4 p.m.
