Nearly two years to the day of their historic victory over Watertown, the Winchester field hockey team halted yet another long unbeaten streak by their Middlesex League rival.
Sophomore Shannon Miranda scored the game’s lone goal, assisted by junior Mia Legere and the host Sachems made the lone goal stand up for a 1-0 victory Monday afternoon.
It was the first regular-season loss for Watertown since Sept. 11, 2017, when Winchester dealt the Raiders a 3-0 defeat, ending a record 184-game unbeaten streak for coach Eileen Donahue’s program.
After that loss, Watertown closed the regular season with 16 straight wins, went 16-0-1 last fall (losing to Dennis-Yarmouth in the D2 state semifinals), and opened this season with 7-1 victory over Arlington, for 34 games without a loss.
“The goal came off a corner,” said Winchester coach Michelle White. “The pass was shot into the circle and tipped by [Legere] before [Miranda] put it in the net from the post. They got a little overly excited right away but then they were very good about their celebration.
“They beat an incredible team.”
