The Line Mountain field hockey team got off to a good start for the 2014 season, taking two victories in its own tournament held Aug. 30.

Line Mountain then kept the heat on the Braves’ cage and upped the tally to 2-0 when Kortnee Schwartz found the cage 9:30 into the second half. Scheib took an assist from Chloe Poltonavage 11:08 after intermission to make it
3-0.

The Eagles had 30 shots on goal and 17 penalty corners. Goalie Kate Campbell had a shutout.

Line Mountain 2, Bloomsburg 1. The match was as evenly played as the final score indicated, with Line Mountain finally capturing the win during the seven-on-seven sudden victory overtime period.

The Eagles tied it, 1-1, when Rachel Harner took a tip pass from Poltonavage 26:48 into the second half.
