Field Hockey End of Season 2022

In their first season under new head coach Alexandria Barna, the Madison High School girls’ field hockey team had one of their most successful showcasings in recent history. They finished with a record of 16-3-1, which marked their highest winning season since 2018, where they had a 16-3 record.

The Dodgers were nearly undefeated in regular season competition, with a 3-1 loss to Ridge being their only scratch in an otherwise perfect season. They then participated in the NJSIAA tournament, where they beat Mendham 4-0 in the North Jersey, Group 2 first round match, and Rumson-Fair Haven 1-0 in the second round. However, the team’s season concluded with a 8-0 loss against West Essex in the sectional semifinals.

Within the Liberty Conference, the Dodgers posted a 13-0 record, which earned them the conference title. The last time Madison won the Liberty conference was the 2019 season.

Junior Ally Brosie led the team in both scoring and assists, clocking 16 goals and 22 assists. In fact, she scored more goals in this season alone than she did in her freshman and sophomore season combined, as she had 15 career goals prior to the start of her junior year. 

Brosie scored the game-winning goal in the Dodgers’ North Jersey Group 2 game against Rumson-Fair Haven, a feat that got her a feature in the high school sports website

Also scoring double-digit goals were senior Chloe Niceberg and junior Megan Peterson, who have 14 and 10 goals respectively.

The defense was powered by the two goalies: sophomore Caitlyn Piotrowski and senior Hope Reilly. Piotrowski recorded 70 saves throughout the season, whereas Reilly had 20 of her own.

Next season, the Dodgers will lose five seniors: Chloe Niceberg, Hope Reilly, Sophia Fee, Jenna Powers and Shayne Carfano. All five athletes played field hockey during all four years of high school, and were honored on their October 19th senior day.
