It was a day that the word unbeaten streak could be associated with the sport of field hockey through out the South Jersey area. Before the Lady Crusaders from Bishop Eustace were hosting Cherry Hill West in a match up between the first and second place team, you couldn’t help but wonder if the Eastern field hockey team were going to set a new unbeaten record at 107. During this Olympic Conference National Division competition, Bishop Eustace showed by they was the team in first place by using a balanced attack shutting out the Cougars. Three different players scored for Bishop Eustace as the cruised to a 3-0 win.

Bishop Eustace continued to keep their divisional record clean of any loses. Already with the Olympic Conference National Division title already in their grasp, the Crusaders were looking for their tenth divisional win and it would occur on their home field. While Katie Licata’s ability of keeping Cherry Hill West scoreless, Bishop Eustace got goals from Annie Taft, Kelly Burke and Brittany Singer. The Lady Crusaders have one more regular schedule non-league competition against the West Deptford Eagles.
