What the Madison High School girls field hockey team accomplished during the regular season was both rare and remarkable.
The team finished undefeated at 10-0. That’s impressive enough. More so, is the Warhawks won all 10 matches but shutouts, outscoring their opponents, 35-0.
When does that happen? As good as a defense plays, as the case with Madison, usually at least a fluke goal is scored in some manner. But not during the regular season against the Warhawks, who didn’t allow but a dozen shots or so in those 10 matches, and few penalty corners, as well.
With the regular season now complete and with stats like that, Madison will be a favorite to win region and state tournaments in the coming days.
We’ll see what happens.
