FIELD HOCKEY

SUNBURY -- It was the second game-winner this week for a player with the last name of Halloran, as Jamey Halloran's unassisted goal early in overtime gave Shikellamy a 2-1 overtime win over Southern Columbia in a Heartland Athletic Conference cross-over victory Saturday.

On Tuesday, Bailey Halloran scored the only goal in Shikellamy's 1-0 victory over Danville.

Preceeding Jamey Halloran's tally, Courtney Hummel scored unassisted to give Shikellamy (2-3) the halftime. Southern (1-3) tied the game midway through the second half on a goal by Taylor Hoffman.

"Jamey carried the ball down the field to score the winning goal, and Caroline Stepanik worked the ball down the field numerous times to keep the ball on the Shikellamy offensive side," said Braves coach Holly Zimmerman.
