One year ago Gilford Field Hockey traveled to Winnisquam to play a game under cloudy conditions and the teams played to a 0 - 0 tie. Fast forward to Tuesday September 10, 2013. Under similar weather conditions Winnisquam and Gilford faced off and at the end the teams played to another 0 - 0 tie. Both years the goalies stepped up big and received very good support from their halfbacks.
Both offenses had their opportunities and the defenses again and again rose to the occasion. The game was highlighted by the passing of Winnisquam's Erin McNamara and Rachel Willcutt while Kayla Orton led Gilford's defense.
