POTTSTOWN >> After a year off from competition, the Pottstown field hockey team is back and trying to improve day by day. Norristown is in much the same boat, having played short-handed last season and with only two returning players.
Those two young and inexperienced teams met on Wednesday afternoon, with visiting Norristown winning 1-0 in the Pioneer Athletic Conference crossover game on a late goal by Alexandra Carpenter.
Taetum Robbins made 10 saves in goal for the Trojans (0-4 PAC, 0-5 overall). Alana Echevarria assisted on the goal with six minutes remaining in the match and the Eagles (1-3, 2-4) had an 8-0 advantage in penalty corners.
