University Liggett girls’ field hockey team hosted division foe Grand Rapids Forest Central last weekend.

It was a battle of two of the top three teams in the Michigan High School Field Hockey Association Division 2 standings.

Forest Hills Central held a 1-0 lead until the final seconds when the Knights were awarded a corner.

With no time left on the clock, Gabrielle Masi scored, forcing a 1-1 tie.

“It was a great game and exciting to the very end,” head coach Tamara Fobare said. “We caught a break and Gabby made it pay off with that very late goal.”

In other action last week, Liggett blasted Dearborn Edsel Ford 8-0 as Ania Dow and Megan DesMadryl led the way with two goals apiece. Other goal scorers were Ellene Bricolas, Jane Ninivaggi and Alexis Kmak.

Drawing assists were Masi, Dow and Kmak.

“The girls have been playing very well and doing the little things they didn’t do last year to win games,” Fobare said. “We have a big week coming up, so we have to be on our game. It’s great for the girls to be in this position.”

Liggett improved to 4-0-1 in Division 2 and 5-1-1 overall.
