Mohawk Trail Regional High School held East Longmeadow High School without a shot but was unable to score on any of its own five shots, so the two teams played to a scoreless draw in independent field hockey action Tuesday in Buckland.

Mohawk goalie Isis Moon did not have to make a save to earn the shutout, which Mohawk coach Alina Schmidt attributed to her team’s work on defense in practice.

“Our focus coming in was to just try and execute what we’ve been practicing and that’s something that happened,” she explained. “There was so much intensity in the way everyone was playing today. Everyone was pushing each other and the effort was great.”

Both teams had a goal called back, Mohawk in the first half, East Longmeadow in the second. Both chances came on corner attempts when the ball failed to leave the circle before being shot into the goal.

Erin Thibodeau stopped five shots for East Longmeadow.
