Kila Hancock and Caroline Kolk each scored three times Tuesday to lead East Chapel Hill’s scoring in an 8-0 shutout of the Falcons.
Sasha Bull and Jordan Metzbower each scored one goal as the Wildcats (7-1) extended their streak of wins against fellow N.C. High School Athletics Association members.
Kolk, one of whose goals came off a penalty stroke, led the scoring with four points total, adding an assist to her tally.
East Chapel Hill never allowed Jordan a shot on-goal, though the Falcons did get a chance inside the penalty circle at least three times in the second half.
Never miss a local story.
The Wildcats tried a total of 24 penalty corners against Jordan, while the Falcons were awarded just two, both late in second half with East already ahead 7-0.
Winners of seven straight N.C. Field Hockey Association state championships (the NCHSAA doesn’t conduct a state tournament in field hockey), the Wildcats haven’t lost to an N.C. public high school since a 2-1 loss to Carrboro in 2013.
East’s lone loss so far this year came in a 3-2 overtime match with Providence Country Day in the championship finals of the Play 4 The Cure invitational tournament Aug. 29 at Cary Academy.
“It’s hard for me to imagine any program going undefeated through an entire season,” East Chapel Hill head coach Susan Taylor. “But that’s a good thing for the girls. It helps keep them grounded, and it helps them to realize that every team is out to get us every time we play.”
East Chapel Hill won’t play again until it hosts a rematch with Jordan on Monday.
The East junior varsity also won with a shutout Tuesday, winning 5-0 at Jordan in a match that preceded the varsity on Barringer Field.
