Congratulations to the Merchantville School Field Hockey team. It has been many years since our middle school team scored a goal and over ten years since they earned a win. This week they broke the curse, they scored a goal and came out with a 1-1 tie. Then, in their last game they scored another goal to secure a 1-0 win. They had one objective this season - to score a goal - and, they topped that. "A picture says a thousand words" and this one sure is proof! Such exciting and well deserved games for the students, coaches and school!
