TAUNTON, Mass. – Oliver Ames won both meeting with Taunton during the regular season. but Taunton turned the tables in the postseason to even the the season series. First, Taunton won the coin toss on Tuesday (it was actually names picked out of a hat) so that Thursday night’s Div. 1 South playoff game, the first for Taunton in 27 years, would be at Aleixo Stadium.

Cheered on by a large, partisan crowd, freshman Alana Tavares scored her second goal in as many games (and second of the season) three minutes into the seven-on-seven overtime to break a scoreless deadlock and hand Taunton its first postseason win in program history.

“We came out with energy that I’ve never seen before,” said Taunton head coach Liz Hathaway. “They just wanted it. I think they wanted it more.”

OA coach Abby Tepper echoed Hathaway’s sentiments, giving credit to the desire and urgency of the hosts. “The fact that they were home,” she said, “they had the adrenaline, the crowd, the first time in 27 years, I mean that’s got to get them going and it did.”

The first attack of the overtime period went to OA, but the Taunton defense made the stop and quickly transitioned down the other end of the field. Senior Liana Duartebullied her way past three OA defenders to create the scoring chance and on the third rebound Tavares was on hand to knock in the loose ball.

“That kid is definitely a spark plug,” Hathaway said of Duarte. “She has the biggest heart and talk about wanting it…she definitely wants it.”

Taunton assistant Mike Fox, who took over for Hathaway after the birth of her child during the season, added, “Graduation is coming in June and…three very vital seniors in the program are leaving us to go forward in college and it was a nice opportunity to maybe have a freshman take that torch and start carrying it.”

OA senior goalie Caitlin Grant nearly kept out Taunton in overtime, sliding out and using her whole body to stop not only Duarte’s initial shot but also the first rebound. In fact, OA would not have even gotten to the overtime, if Grant had not come through with a kick save in the final seconds of regulation to deny Diana Brens off a Tavares assist.

Tepper said, “I told her before the game, ‘You’re a top goalie in the league and you need to play like that. Play on your toes, be ready,’ and she was ready. She had two saves before the goal went in, so not her fault at all. We just didn’t clear it off the pads quick enough.”

What made the victory even more impressive for Taunton is that the Tigers were playing without leading scorer Kya Enos. The senior forward was sidelined with a concussion and forced to miss the playoff game, but for Hathaway and Fox this was a sign of the team’s depth.

“That just goes to show how much they all want it and how much of a team sport this is, not just heavily relying on one player,” said Hathaway. Fox noted, “We spoke about how we could use her injury as a scapegoat and play down or as a springboard and play better and we saw how the girls used it for 60-plus minutes.”

It was a game that featured back-and-forth action, but few clear-cut chances for either team. In the first half, neither team was able to put a shot on target and the two goalies only combined for three saves in regulation.

In the 17th minute, Sarah Stevens set up Hannah Stryke, but the freshman’s first-time shot was just wide of the post. Ten minutes later, Taunton nearly created an opening goal with a straightaway shot by Cierra Bartel off a Brens pass that also went wide.

Defensively, both teams looked strong, despite the youth that both teams had out on the field. Taunton had sophomores Kathryn Robinson, Jocelyn Pagliuca, and Rylie Murphy at the back, while OA had freshmen Emily Han and Brynna Courneen making stops in the defensive unit.

Off a second half corner, Murphy blasted a shot that Grant blocked aside and off the post, but the official’s whistle called off the effort. Six minutes later, Taunton again had a good chance when Lauren Torres crossed for Brens but the senior was unable to get a touch to the pass.

The visitors were next to create chances with Maggie Woods got to a loose ball right in front but the shot missed wide and then Woods was fed by Stevens in front but her shot was kicked aside by Taunton goalie Emma Sheehan.

Jillian Pagliuca fired a long-range shot at the OA goal and Hannah Blackwell was open on the post but was unable to make contact and knock it in during the final, frenetic moments of regulation.

“I think they beat us to 50-50 balls and, as you can tell they wanted it more,” said Tepper, as the Taunton team and its fans celebrated after the game. “I think we were playing on our heels a little bit, we were reluctant, and they were aggressive.”

In the end, it was Tavares, who scored 64 goals for the lacrosse team as an eighth grader, that came through in the clutch with the winning touch. It was just her second career field hockey goal, but it was a memorable one, sending Taunton into the second round for the first time.

“They’ve got to execute and they did,” said Fox, “but it doesn’t hurt to have home-field advantage and I think you can feel the energy especially when we got to overtime. The girls are pumped up, they’re in front of the student body, they’re in front of their families and friends, and it was a pretty special night.”

Taunton (11-7-1, 8-7-1), the No. 16 seed, will advance to face undefeated top seed Somerset-Berkeley on Saturday afternoon at 3:00. Oliver Ames finishes the season at (9-7-3, 8-6-2).

NORTH EASTON, Mass. – It was only five minutes into the game, and Oliver Ames had the ball in the attacking half for most of that time, but Tigers’ second-year head coach Abby Tepper didn’t like what she saw, and burned one of her timeouts.

“We talked about our body language, communication…it was the controllables more than anything,” Tepper said. “I thought it was important to call it that early, and it did turn things around. It was all about the controllables more than the actual tactical skills.”

The result of the timeout was a spirited effort from the Tigers, scoring four goals in the next 20 minutes and walking away from Muscato Stadium with a 5-0 decision over visiting Milford.

OA created two great scoring chances just moments after the timeout. Junior Kayla Lozzi fed Liz Nuss up the middle, but Milford’s Emily Haley made a nice defensive play just in front of goal. A minute later, freshman Hannah Stryke ripped a shot that was tipped by Nuss, but Milford keeper Paige Reisman made the stop.

The Tigers kept up the pressure, earning their third corner of the game just over the midway point of the first half. Freshman Emily Han connected with Sarah Stevens on the corner, who passed back to Cristina Boudreau. The senior ripped a shot from distance and found the back of the net to make it 1-0.

The goal seemed to give Oliver Ames more confidence, as they kept pressuring the Hawks.

Just two minutes after the opening tally, sophomore Maura Kiernan was in the right place in front of goal, getting a slid touch on Stevens’ long shot, deflecting it into the cage to make it 2-0.

“I think we started off a little bit flat and I had to call a timeout early on,” Tepper said. “We really want the players to lead, I think the captains are good leaders and they got everyone going. Once we started scoring, that kind of opened up the floodgates more for us.”

OA added another goal just a minute later, converting on another one of their eight first half corner chances. This time, junior Meaghan Rockey found Boudreau for a shot. With Stryke perfectly positioned for a screen, Boudreau’s shot found its way through traffic and into the back of the net.

The Tigers capped their first half scoring with just over five minutes to play in the first half. Boudreau carried possession up the right side of the field and then drilled a cross through the area to the back post. Junior Katie Bosse corralled the pass and then placed her shot into the back of the net to make it 4-0.

Oliver Ames controlled the second half as well, earning 10 corners and putting 11 shots on net, but only converted once.

Five minutes into the second half, the Tigers earned a penalty stroke when the ball was covered in the area. Lozzi took the shot and drilled into to the left side of the cage to make it 5-0.

Milford had chances on the counter-attack, especially with the speed of senior Shannon Cormier. But Oliver Ames’ defense played a high line and continually thwarted the Scarlet Hawks’ attempts to break out.

“For this game, we wanted our defense to be marking,” Tepper said. “Sometimes we have the defense go low and be ready to recover. But we wanted to mark this game and deny them, we wanted to stop the ball before it even got into our end. Our defense did a nice job of forcing them wide and keeping them out of the circle.”

The Hawks finally did break out in the 54th minute, registering their first chance on goal. Bella Gonzalez sent a pass in behind the defense that Cormier raced onto, but Oliver Ames goalie Caitlin Grant came charging out and made a sliding save, double stacking her pads.

Milford earned its first corner of the game in the final minutes but OA’s defense denied a scoring chance.

“I think we’re playing pretty well right now but I think the schedule gets a lot tougher next week with Foxboro and Canton,” Tepper said. “I think there are some games we could capitalize a bit more but the team chemistry is good and the morale is up.”

Oliver Ames field hockey (7-1-2 overall, 6-1-2 Hockomock) returns to action on Tuesday when Tepper makes her first trip back to her alma mater, Foxboro. Milford (2-7-0, 2-7-0) will try to bounce back when it entertains Attleboro on the same day.
