AMHERST, N.H. — Mia Edmonds converted a penalty stroke with 2.6 seconds left in regulation, giving the Hanover High field hockey team a 2-1 win over Souhegan on Thursday afternoon.

Grace Coughlin put Hanover (2-0-0) on the board in the first half, winning a goalmouth scramble. The play began with a Gail Morse insertion into the Souhegan circle which Edmonds tipped in traffic, leaving Coughlin with the finish.

Souhegan evened the game in the third quarter and dominated play much of the second half. Defenders Emily Perras, Stella Pinto and Jess Lichtenstein held firm, and Reilly Loughman (nine saves) kept the Sabers quiet, setting up Hanover’s decisive goal against the run of play.

Hanover visits Merrimack Valley on Tuesday.

JAFFREY, N.H. — Ben Seiler scored all four goals for the Royals in a road loss to the Orioles.

Seiler scored the first two goals of the game, including a strike in the 28th minute on a feed from freshman Tanner Moulton. Conant scored before halftime to narrow the gap but Seiler answered in the first minute of the second half to put Mascoma (1-1-0) back in front by two.

Conant then erupted for four straight goals to take a 5-3 edge. Seiler added a penalty kick goal in the 67th minute but the Royals could get no closer afterwards.

“Conant woke up (in the second half); it was literally like playing a different team,” Mascoma coach Keli Green said.

Keeper Isaiah Hogan made 13 saves for the Royals. Green praised the play of midfielders Zach Thompson and Cole Moulton. Mascoma will visit Fall Mountain on Wednesday.
