For the first time in several years, University Liggett girls’ field hockey team beat city rival Grosse Pointe South.

The squads met last weekend at South and in the end it was all Liggett as the Knights won 4-0.

Gabrielle Masi scored the lone goal in the first half and Ania Dow made it 2-0 midway through the second stanza.

The 2-0 lead was stretched to 4-0 when the visitors scored twice in the final four minutes. Kaitlyn Vreeken tallied the first goals and Allison Stapleton netted the final goal with exactly two minutes remaining on the clock.

“The girls played very well today and they worked very hard to earn this victory,” Liggett head coach Tamara Fobare said.

South head coach Millie Tompkins wasn’t pleased with her Blue Devils.

“We didn’t do a good job today and it was evident in our play,” she said.

The Knights dominated the game from the opening play and never let up until the final horn sounded.

The Blue Devils have dominated this season, but now evened their record at 1-1 against city rivals Grosse Pointe North and Liggett.

Earlier in the week, Liggett lost 1-0 to Saline to send its record to 3-1 overall, while Grosse Pointe South is 2-1.
