As the regular season winds down, it gives a team time to reflect on their season. Looking back on a few of those games, would the outcome of a game been different if the team ran their called play better? What ever the reason, field hockey is a game that’s played together as a single unit working towards a goal to win. This game between Cherry Hill West and Camden Catholic was about two teams headed into the upcoming tournament. Cherry Hill West and Camden Catholic had the chance to get ready for the start of the state tournament by giving several players a chance to play more minutes. Today, these two teams could not decide a winner as the two ended in a scoreless tie.

The Lady Lions had a four game winning streak snapped when they loss to Shawnee down the stretch of their season. That loss may have been the end to their winning ways, but it was good enough to qualify them for the upcoming tournament. For Camden Catholic, their winning ways included another Olympic Conference National Division title and the number one seed in the upcoming South Jersey Group 2 bracket. So with a position secured in the tournament, both teams would battle to tie as Camden Catholic’s Michele DePasquale and Cherry Hill West’s Paula Broussard both recorded shutouts in this game.
