MANCHESTER, N.H. – The Londonderry Lancers continued their currently perfect field hockey season, defeating Manchester Memorial by a score of 2-0 on Wednesday.

Senior Courtney Shay scored both goals for Londonderry, one on each side of halftime. Senior Grace CHicko assisted the first half goal while junior Skylar Hamilton assisted on the second goal.

“Courtney’s going to start having a target on her soon because she really knows how to finish for us,” said Londonderry Head Coach Nicole Treadwell. “She knows when to step up and when I need her to. She’s just one of those kids who steps up under pressure and knows when she has to finish, she’s going to finish.”

Londonderry could have had a few more goals, but Treadwell was happy leaving with the win and a solid effort from her team that can be built upon.

Memorial came close several times as well, but Memorial Head Coach Meredith Doyle was a little more frustrated.

“We worked really hard, we just have to find a way to finish,” she said. “I think Londonderry did great getting the ball down the field fast, we have to do that ourselves.”

Memorial (1-5-0) will host Nashua North on Sept. 23 at 6:15 p.m. Londonderry (5-0-0) will play Dover that day at 4 p.m.

Gill Stadium also held a field hockey contest on Wednesday, with Concord (5-0-0) defeating Manchester Central (0-4-1), 2-1. In Division II, Derryfield (6-0-0) dominated Bow (1-5-0), 6-0.

In girls’ volleyball Central (0-5) lost 3-0 to Salem (5-0) in girls’ volleyball, Memorial’s matchup against Nashua South was postponed.
