Trojanettes win Division II Field Hockey title!
Citizens Voice

Nanticoke Area's field hockey season began with hopes of getting postions settled and working on improving on its third place finish from 2008.
On Wednesday, the Trojanettes ended the regular season with even better results than they had planned - a Division II title.
Liz Dougherty scored on a rebound in the second half, lifting Nanticoke to a 1-0 victory over Abington Heights for the Division II championship. The Trojanettes are 9-5-1 and went undefeated against division foes.
"To be honest, this wasn't a main goal because we were worried about positioning and getting people settled," Nanticoke coach Lori Dennis said. "I am so proud of this team because they stepped up and surprised a lot of people.
"The girls were on the same page with each other and they supported each other and that went a long way for us."
Kati Nearhouse assisted the game-winner, while Alex Gorski made one save in goal for Nanticoke. Abington keeper Megan Conaboy had eight saves in goal for Abington.
"We still need to work on our agressiveness," Dennis said. "We didn't play our best today and they didn't come off celebrating. Abington totally took us by surprise."
