Greenwich Time: Sacred Heart Greenwich defeats field hockey rival Greenwich Academy in battle of unbeatens
This article originally appeared on the Greenwich Time website.
 
Neighborhood rivals Sacred Heart Greenwich and Greenwich Academy each entered their much-anticipated matchup unbeaten, while allowing only a handful of goals between them all season, so something had to give when the two field hockey powers met on Saturday. Setting the tone early with two first-half goals enabled the Tigers to emerge from the 2019 version of this always intense game with their perfect record intact.
 
Two-time defending FAA Tournament champion Sacred Heart held yet another foe off the scoreboard, shutting out host Greenwich Academy, 3-0, in a key league game. With the win, the Tigers raised their record to 10-0 and remained in first place in the FAA.
 
Should Sacred Heart win the remainder of its league games, it will earn its first ever FAA regular season title — a championship that has gone to Greenwich Academy in previous seasons. The Tigers will also gain the No. 1 seed and home field advantage in next month’s FAA Tournament.
