Friday Night Lights Features Field Hockey and Football
This Friday, November 8, varsity field hockey faces off against Suffield Academy at 5:00 p.m. and varsity football kicks off against Hamden Hall at 7:00 p.m. on the turf under the lights. It will also be a Senior Day celebration for both teams with the field hockey ceremony beginning at 4:45 p.m. and the football one around 6:30 p.m.
There will be a pasta dinner offered for KO students from 5:00-6:00 p.m. in the dining hall. Food trucks will also be on campus for hungry fans (please remember to bring cash or credit card to order from the trucks). The forecast is set to be a chilly one so, in addition to Wyvern spirit, game-goers should bring a warm jacket, a hat, and gloves.
Director of Athletics Debbie Fiske said, “Our soccer games under the lights a few weeks back were a great success, with so many fans that came out to support our teams. I am really looking forward to this next round on Friday, featuring our field hockey and football teams. It will be another terrific night for our community to come together to celebrate athletics, support their peers and watch some great competition!”
Field Hockey is coming off of a big win from last Saturday, November 2, when they edged out Greens Farms in overtime with a final score of 1-0. Their hard work and dedication are showing more than ever in their play and with their 11-4 record, they are well-positioned to get a spot in the postseason.
Football comes into the weekend with a 2-4 record. The team cruised to a 55-0 win against Cushing Academy in early October, but fell just short of Dexter Southfield on Hewett Day (24-21) in what was a back and forth battle full of big plays between two good football teams. This season has been an exceptional showing of talent with a host of players stepping up to make big plays and push the competition.
