The University Liggett girls’ field hockey team is off to a flying start after crushing West Bloomfield 7-0 last week.

Ania Dow led the way with three goals for the host Knights. Other scorers were Megan DesMadryl, Pasha Vrekeen and Jane Ninivaggi.

Two days later, the host Knights beat Farmington 5-3 as Dow once again led the offensive charge with two goals.

“The girls had a nice start to the year with two nice wins,” head coach Tamara Fobare said. “The seniors are really leading the way and I like the way our younger girls are playing, too.”

Maranda Saigh, DesMadryl and Ellie Withers also scored the Knights on a hot, humid Thursday afternoon.

“All the girls played well and played a lot,” Fobare said. “It’s so hot that it is important to give the girls water breaks. It’s important early in the season that the girls are ready to play.”

Liggett improved to 2-0 overall and in the Michigan High School Field Hockey Association Division 2 standings.
