In the first round of the Class B field hockey playoffs, the eighth-seeded Huskies fell to ninth-seeded Brewster 3-0 on Oct. 25. Brewster rode an early goal to the win, playing stout defense against a game Harrison squad to earn a hard-fought road win to kick-off the playoffs.

Harrison had trouble containing Ally Ferraro, who found the net twice, while her teammate, Payton Montague, picked up Brewster’s other goal. Despite their best efforts, Harrison’s attackers couldn’t put one past Brewster goalie Ava Faitakes, who picked up another shutout.
