Koa Corner - Field Hockey Blog

This fall Koa hosted the First DMV Club League! Teams from all over the DC/Maryland/Virginia area came out to compete for the title of DMV League Champions! Koa entered teams into the u12 and u14 age divisions. All the hard work that these girls put in throughout the season really showed in their games each week. Thank you to everyone who came out to support our teams! We are so proud of all of our Koa players!


U12 DMV Champions!

The U12 club team played their best game of the year last week to take home the DMV Fall League Championship. U12 faced Metro HC Blue, a team that was undefeated during regular season play. Koa pulled ahead early in the game, entering halftime up by a score of 1-0. Koa scored again at the start of the second half to make the score 2-0. Unfortunately, in the last 10 minutes of the game, Metro HC came back with two goals, evening the score at 2-2 at the end of regulation. This lead to a shootout, with each team submitting three players to take on the goalies in a 1v1 shootout. At the end of the first shootout, the score remained tied, with each team having 3 goals. The game then went into sudden death shootouts, with Emi Hakutani scoring the game winning goal, resulting in another championship trophy for Koa!
