NORTH EASTON, Mass. – Heading into the postseason, Oliver Ames first year head coach Abby Tepper was ready to switch things up.

The Tigers had won just two of their final fives games so Tepper elected to meet with her captains and come up with a formation change.

The change worked as Oliver Ames put in a strong performance and came away with a 2-0 win over Durfee in the MIAA D1 South Preliminary Round. The Tigers will now take on #2 Walpole.

“We knew [Durfee] would be scrappy, we knew they’d be playing hard,” Tepper said. “They just won their league [Big 3] so we knew they’d be pumped. We had a really good practice yesterday. We’ve changed our formation three times now for the postseason. This one I think is clicking so hopefully third time is the charm.”

Tepper elected to go with four defenders instead of the three that the Tigers had deployed throughout the regular season. Tepper brought Sydney Hedrick, who had played forward during the regular season, to the back line. That switch limited the visiting Hilltoppers to just a single shot on goal throughout the entire game and limited offensively opportunities beyond that.

“Sydney has been playing forward this season, she’s one of the changes in the formations,” Tepper said. “I sat with the captains [Kendall Clifford and Katie Davenport] and told them I wanted to change the formation. I wanted to collaborate with them. Sometimes I can’t see or hear things that they can on the field.

“Katie mentioned having Sydney on defense. Sydney has played defense in the past, she knows the position and she talks a lot so it adds even more leadership. I think it helped us a lot today and having four in the back helped instead of three, which we used to have.”

Oliver Ames nearly got on the board less than two minutes into the game off a penalty corner. Sarah Stevens dished the ball out to Dimitra Efremidis, who chipped her shot but the ball looped off the crossbar and stayed out.

While the Tigers controlled the majority of play, thanks in part of Davenport and Hedrick thwarting any Durfee attack, it took until the midway point of the first half for Oliver Ames to break through.

It looked like Durfee had stopped another Tiger attack and tried to clear the ball but Efremidis positioned herself well and took position of the ball. She ripped a shot into the area where Cristina Boudreau deflected the shot perfectly into the back of the cage to make it 1-0.

The Tigers registered one more chance with just over seven minutes to play in the first half, again using a penalty corner. Stevens dealt the pass to Kendall Clifford but her shot went just wide at the far post.

Early in the second half, the Tigers had to do without Clifford after an injury. Five minutes later, Durfee found its best chance of the game. The ball was knocked into the attacking area for the Hilltoppers and freshman Julia Kelly had an open look from in close but OA goalie Katie Vamosi came up with a point blank kick save to preserve the lead.

Just over five minutes after that save, Oliver Ames field hockey was able to get its second goal of the game. After Durfee’s goalie made a diving save to deny a chance at the near post, the ball popped out to Sarah Stevens on the right side of the area. She quickly centered it back to the middle where Efremidis swatted it in for a 2-0 lead.

Efrremidis finished with a goal and assist in the game.

“I was really proud of her, I even talked to her after the game about it,” Tepper said of Efremidis. “She’s one of those players that always keeps her head in it, she’s always in the zone. You watch her, she’s constantly in the zone and you can’t get her out of it. She’ll go from end line to end line, she plays 100%, I love it.”

Even with Durfee pushing numbers forward over the final 10 minutes, the Hilltoppers were unable to register a serious scoring chance thanks to Oliver Ames’ defense.

Next up, the Tigers will travel to #2 Walpole on Friday at 4:00. The Porkers are the defending D1 South Sectional champions and have been, historically, the top program in the area.

“I told the girls after the game that nothing negative can come out of our mouths – we’re going in and going to play our best,” Tepper said. “We’ll bring it to practice tomorrow and then we’ll go into Walpole believing we can win that game.”

NORTH EASTON, Mass. – Oliver Ames senior Dimitra Efremidis thought for sure that she had tied Wednesday evening’s division matchup with King Philip, but with 14 minutes to go her shot through traffic rang against the inside of the post and sliced across the face of the goal.

That thin of a margin separated the Warriors and Tigers at Muscato Stadium, with KP holding on for a 2-1 victory. The margins are that thin in the race for the Kelley-Rex title as well, as the victory keeps the Warriors ahead of rival Franklin by a solitary point with just three games remaining in the regular season.

“I don’t have to motivate this group. They want it,” said KP coach Liz Hathaway of the team’s quest for its first league title since 2008. “We have that one loss on the season (to Stoughton) and they did not like it, so since then they’ve been on a tear. They know what’s at stake, I don’t even have to say it.”

Despite suffering a fourth loss in the past five games, first-year OA coach Abby Tepper was upbeat about the effort that the Tigers showed on senior night, pushing KP right to the final horn.

“This was one of the best games that I’ve seen them play so far,” said Tepper. “When we played Mansfield, we beat them but we had let downs, but this game I feel like they played the whole game and we had chances at the end.”

The Tigers had plenty of chances throughout an entertaining game that saw both teams create scoring opportunities. It was the home team that cashed in first with Kendall Clifford’s cross from the right tipped in at the near post by Cristina Boudreau, through the five-hole of KP goalie Abby Campbell (six saves), just seven minutes in.

KP nearly answered right back when a looping shot from Christina Hathaway was cleared off the goal line by Sarah Tetrault, who knocked the aerial ball down from shoulder height. A minute later and the Warriors did tie the game when OA goalie Katie Vamosi(six saves) was caught off her line and Alli Meehan found space to slide in a shot.

Vamosi would make amends two minutes later with a sliding save to stop Caitlin Donahue’s shot from distance. After OA had a tying goal wiped away for a whistle, Efremidis would be denied not once but twice by Campbell. The first was on a diving save down low to the junior’s right and the second when Campbell managed to get a stick to a high, dipping shot off a penalty corner.

“They have that beautiful aerial corner that we knew about,” said Hathaway. “Abby knew it was going to go there and she’s great at the aerials. She made a great save.”

The save looked even bigger with two minutes left until halftime. Again from a corner, KP worked the ball through the crease in front of goal and Elizabeth Furfari worked space in front to flick an off-hand shot inside the far post for what turned out to be the game-winner.

In the second half, OA pushed for an equalizing goal and the Warriors pressed to limit the space for Efremidis and the Tigers attackers to work in. Hathaway praised the effort of sweeper Emma Izydorczak and left back Kate Lindmark for closing up the space in front of goal and stopping the cross from the right that OA used to score the opening goal.

“We knew that we had to press them and try to keep Dimitra down,” said Hathaway about the defensive strategy. “We had to press and stop the cutters up the middle and their crosses from left to right are huge and my left back and sweep did an awesome job to get the ball out.”

The Warriors also created chances on the counterattack but were denied by Vamosi, who made four saves in the second half, and by defender Katie Davenport, who was a constant presence in the middle.

The Tigers had already seen a shot get tipped just wide of the post, smacking the boarding on the outside of the goal and sending up a premature cheer from the bleachers, when Efremidis got free in the left channel and fired a low shot that looked destined for the corner. The senior could not mark her final regular season game under the lights at Muscato Stadium with a goal, as the ball clanged off the post and stayed out.

“Hitting the post and tipping outside wide…that’s unlucky,” said Tepper. “I told them before the game to have each other’s back and give 100 percent and I’ll be proud and that’s what they did. From what I saw…they left it all on the field.”

The close call keeps KP in front by the slimmest of margins and the Warriors hold their own destiny. Win the final three games and they will be champions. “

King Philip (11-1-3, 10-1-2) will begin its final stretch at Taunton on Friday, before closing with Mansfield and Franklin. Oliver Ames (8-4-3, 6-4-3) will look to get back on track on Friday at home against Attleboro.

NORTH EASTON, Mass. – A biting wind was whipping across Muscato Stadium on Wednesday evening and blowing a cold mist around the field. Rather than having her team sit in the weather waiting for the start of the varsity game, first-year Oliver Ames coach Abby Tepper moved the Tigers inside to warm up.

“I had them go into the team room before because they were sitting out watching the JV game,” said Tepper. “I usually try to give them a good pregame speech…I think they took it well.”

Whatever happened prior to the start of the game, once the whistle blew the Tigers were fired up and raced out to a 3-0 lead inside the first eight minutes. Junior Elizabeth Nuss scored two goals in that stretch and added a third with nine minutes remaining to clinch a 6-4 victory for the Tigers over division rival Mansfield.

“Liz is very quick,” said Tepper. “At practice I have her get on pads the whole time. We work all offense at practice because that’s what I knew and we do a ton of drills, a ton of tipping. She just knows to get on pads because I throw her on there all the time.”

Nuss was right on the pads of Mansfield goalie Molly Norton (six saves) just two minutes in to tap in a rebound after Norton saved two shots from the Tigers. Just two minutes later and Nuss scored from further away as her shot from the right side slipped through a traffic jam in front of goal and found the back of the net.

OA added a third in the eight minute when Sarah Stevens teed up Dimitra efremidis at the edge of the circle off a penalty corner. The senior buried the chance and forced the Hornets to take an early timeout.

“They came out strong, but actually we did too,” said Mansfield coach Theresa Nyhan. “The difference was the way they positioned the player in front of the goalie. It kind of threw us for a loop.

“It kind of threw our goalie off and then once we got that straightened out I thought it was a pretty even game. It’s just too bad that we started in the deficit.”

Katherine Vamosi made six of her nine saves in the first half and denied several Mansfield chances, but in the 13th minute the Hornets got on the board. Jill Hobaica was in the right place in front of goal to tip home a centering pass from Caitlin Whitman. The momentum only lasted four minutes before OA answered back on another long-range shot from Efremidis that snuck through a tangle of legs in front to make it 4-1.

With the lead, OA started to sit back a little deeper and Mansfield took advantage to get back into the game. A ball knocked in from the edge of the circle was tipped by Heather D’Amrab and flicked over the goalie’s pads by sophomore Maggie Danehy. Three minutes later and the lead was cut to just one when Whitman’s cross was redirected by Danehy into the path of Emily Ierardo at the back stick to tap in.

The scoring was not done with Sydney Hedrickredirecting Cristina Boudreau’s near post cross to widen the gap to two goals. Vamosi came up with a big sliding stop on Olivia Horn in the final seconds of the half to keep it 5-3.

“I think at the end of the first half we were back on our heels,” said Tepper. “We played with a lead and we weren’t playing aggressive… I told them that they had to keep the same intensity that they had at the beginning.”

The Hornets did come out of the break with renewed energy and eight minutes into the second half had cut the lead back to one. Ierardo was denied on a penalty corner by a point-blank save, but Mansfield kept the pressure up and Horn’s shot rebounded to the stick of Kristina O’Connell to make it 5-4.

OA did not sit back on the lead but continued to counter quickly and had several chances on the break. The Hornets continued to pressure and create openings in an entertaining end-to-end half.

“It was a fun game,” said Nyhan. “We needed enthusiasm and we brought it today. They played great, Oliver Ames played great…take away those first two, three goals and it was anybody’s game.”

With the Hornets chasing the tying goal, the Tigers were able to strike and put the game away. Efremidis had a restart on the left side and it was tipped Boudreau into the path of Nuss to close out her hat trick and seal the win.

“That was a reassurance one, for sure,” Tepper said. “But still anything could have happened in 10 minutes.”

Nyhan said, “I thought we had a shot but by that point, you know, we had key people who were tired and we just couldn’t quite pull the trigger. It was tough to do it at the end.”

Oliver Ames (6-0-3, 5-0-3) will try to keep the momentum going against Milford on Friday before having a week to prepare for the visit of Tepper’s alma mater, Foxboro. Mansfield (4-3-1, 4-3-1) will try to bounce back on the grass at Sharon on Friday.
