Bill Iezzi: Bishop Eustace's Furey

Bishop Eustace field hockey coach Krissy Holak figured that the best way to contain Shawnee's top scorer, Becky Stiles, was with speed, not a double-teaming defense Tuesday. 

So the veteran coach had freshman speedster Sarah Furey mark Stiles, who had scored six goals in the first two games of the season.

Host Eustace upset No. 2-ranked Shawnee, 1-0, and Furey played no small part in the victory.

When asked how she thought she did against Stiles, she answered as though she were a senior: "She didn't score a goal," Furey said.
