Sacred Heart Greenwich’s 2019 field hockey team will long be remembered by the school as the squad that made program history.

Years from now, Sacred Heart alumnae will look back on the 2019 team that accomplished a first — capturing a long-awaited title.

Scoring two-second half goals, top-seeded Sacred Heart Greenwich put the finishing touch on a brilliant season by winning the NEPSAC Class A Tournament with a dramatic 2-1 victory over third-seeded Tabor Academy in Sunday’s championship game at The Rivers School.

The triumph gave the Tigers their first NEPSAC championship trophy.

“It’s amazing, it’s something we’ve always dreamed of,” Sacred Heart senior co-captain/defender Sydney Gallop said. “Everyone wanted to win for the seniors and for each other.”

Tigers junior Beth Yeager, the team’s leading goal-scorer, tallied the game-winner with 1:21 remaining in the second half.

Sacred Heart drew one of its 20 penalty corners and capitalized on its final one of the game. Caroline Nemec crossed a short pass to Yeager, who was positioned in the circle on the right side. Creating a bit of space for herself, Yeager drove a hard shot past Tabor goalie Christine Steege that banged the back of the cage, giving the Tigers a 2-1 advantage. Senior midfielder Morgan Smith also assisted on the tally.

“It was nice to finally put one in,” Yeager said. “We had a lot of corners in this game, so it was so satisfying to get one in at that moment. Winning the title is indescribable, it’s one of the best feelings I’ve ever had.”
