BRSTOL — What was supposed to be a busy final week of the regular season for the Newfound field hockey team, turned into a week with just one game.

The game came early in the week when the Bears took on Laconia and picked up a 7-0 win over the Sachems.

"We wanted to start quickly and that's exactly what we did," said coach Kammi Williams.

Newfound scored in the first minute of the game, with Tiffany Doan doing the honors for an unassisted tally.

The Bears then scored again on their first corner, as Doan finished strong with an assist to Maggie Bednaz.

"Maggie has shown so much improvement and consistency over the course of the season," Williams noted.

Freshman Isabelle LaPlume rounded out the first half scoring, giving the Bears a 3-0 lead heading to the break.

"It's difficult to pass when most of the game takes place in one half of the field, but we continue to press on working on our passing game," Williams stated.

Doan finished her hat trick on an assist from Kenzie Bohlmann to start the second half scoring and then Lindsey Lacasse pushed across the fifth goal for the Bears.

LaPlume scored the sixth goal and Bohlmann rounded out the scoring with the seventh goal as she continues to develop her offensive game.

"Laconia's defense had numerous saves on the goal line, their ability to defend the line was quite impressive," said Williams. "I truly appreciated their sportsmanship and their exuberance when they would make a great drive."

The team's other two games in the week were cancelled, finishing the season at 8-0 for the Bears. With the playoffs a bit unusual this year, the Bears were grouped in region four for Division III, putting them in a bracket with the three North Country teams, Littleton, White Mountains and Berlin. Each squad was randomly assigned a number and the Bears were given number four, meaning they will be at Littleton on Friday, Oct. 23, at 3 p.m.
