In Battle of Rams; Cony comes out on top over Bangor on Senior day

BANGOR – The Bangor High School field hockey team hosted Cony of Augusta today in its fourth consecutive home game. Unfortunately for the Bangor girls today was like the past three, all losses, as the Rams of Cony took home a 5-1 win over the Rams of Bangor.

Today was senior appreciation day for the Bangor girls and the parent's group went all out for the seniors to show the appreciation for all their hard work. In a very nice gesture, the Bangor seniors all had flowers for the Cony seniors.

Cony scored just one goal in the first half to take a 1-0 lead. The second half was different as they crashed the backboard of the cage four more times while holding Bangor to just one goal for the 5-1 win.

With the win, Cony goes to 8-4 on the season while Bangor falls to 5-7.

Julia Reny led the Cony girls with four goals and Faith Leathers-Pouliot added one goal.

Bangor's lone goal came with 3:07 left in the second half from Meaghan Caron with an assist from Kaylee Perkins. Caron brought the ball to the center of the circle spun and shot finding a wide-open cage to end the shutout.

Emily Douglas was in goal for Cony where she had two saves on six shots from Bangor for the win. Mackenzie Morin was in goal for Bangor and had nine saves on 17 shots from Cony.

Cony held the advantage in penalty corners 7-4.

Bangor will hit the road for its final two games. On Tuesday, Oct. 15 they will play at 6 p.m. in Brewer and on Wednesday they travel to Oxford Hills for the final regular-season game. Bangor currently sits in eighth place in the Maine Principal's Association, where the top nine teams make the playoffs. A win at Brewer next Tuesday could be crucial.

Cony will play next at Hampden Academy tomorrow at 6 p.m.
