Palmyra raises its passing-game standard to defeat Warwick 4-2

Palmyra field hockey took home the win Wednesday from Warwick after ramping up its passing game to a more acceptable level.


That’s according to Mallory Hudson, Abby Bennett, and Jovie Weaver.


The three Cougars compared Monday’s game against Red Land to Wednesday’s game and gave their squad higher marks. The trio said neither were they satisfied with their focus against the Patriots, nor were they done working on making improvements.


Warwick just happened to be up next. And, while Palmyra sent paced balls, had their attack and middies running to space, and worked a few overlap plays mostly in the right quadrant of the turf, the Warriors stayed with them.


The Cougars were clearly not over Monday’s 1-0 overtime contest. The narrow win helped to motivate them, which led to them firing off a score in under 90 seconds.


Palmyra continued to find the cage in the subsequent quarters, scoring in the second, third, and fourth.


Warwick bookended its goals scoring in the first and fourth. The Warriors had a series of corners late in the fourth, and possessed the ball for nearly the entire quarter. But, their shots weren’t connecting with the cage.


Bennett also swatted away a chip shot, and rejected rebounded ground ball after ground ball.
