Nearing the close to its 2022 season, the Revere High School field hockey team has made significant progress with a number of younger players receiving a lot of game time. That was the case last Friday night at Saugus High School, where the Patriots fell short in a close 2-1 contest. The defeat dropped Revere to 4-8-2 overall on the season with season-ending games against Northeast Metro Tech and Lowell scheduled for this week.
Senior captain Hana Aklog notched Revere’s lone goal in last Friday’s loss. Aklog’s tally came in the second half. The Patriots trailed 1-0 at halftime and surrendered the game-deciding goal by Saugus in the second half. Saugus scored the game’s first goal in the second quarter.
Under the guidance of Head Coach Briana Scata, Revere has gotten solid standout seasons from captains Aklog and Bella Stamatopoulos. The duo netted numerous goals and dished out a number of assists to lead the team. Their leadership kept the rest of the squad mentally strong throughout the campaign, according to the coach.
The Patriots have six seniors who will be graduating. They are Gwen Ke, Aklog, Dania Alvarez, Emma Cassinello, Ari Greenman and Alannah Burke. Nine varsity players will be returning next year, including Stamatopoulos, who is a junior.
