Avon field hockey wins 10th game with shutout win over Simsbury

Avon’s Olivia Brown scored her fourth goal of the season Wednesday as the Falcons beat Simsbury, 2-0.

SIMSBURY, Nov. 4, 2020 – Kerry Karlin’s goal with seven minutes gone in the third quarter broke a scoreless tie and Olivia Brown added an insurance goal with 5:04 left in regulation as the Avon High girls field hockey team beat Simsbury, 2-0 on Wednesday at Holden Field.

The Falcons improved to 10-1 in this pandemic-shortened season and have won 10 or more regular season games in 12 of the last 14 seasons.

Karlin’s goal – her third goal of the season – was unassisted. Izzy Russo assisted on Brown’s goal that iced the game for the Falcons.

Avon High goalie Katrina Frez made five saves in net and worked with her defensive teammates to secure their seventh shutout of the season. Kaitlyn O’Brien made nine saves in net for Simsbury, which slips to 8-3.

The Falcons close out the regular season by hosting Simsbury again on Friday at 3:45 p.m. on the turf field outside Avon High.

Avon has five of the last six games against Simsbury dating back to 2015.
