Injury to player postpones match Field hockey

October 08, 1997|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Last night's Severna Park-Annapolis field hockey match was postponed after Annapolis junior forward Caitlin Stone suffered a neck injury in the first half and was flown via helicopter to Shock Trauma.

"She was awake throughout and could feel everything. There was some numbness and a little tingling; it was precautionary," said Annapolis coach Stephanie Rowland-Hunt.

Stone, the Panthers' leading scorer with six goals and four assists, collided with a Severna Park opponent who had just sent a pass down the Annapolis end.

Players from both sides, parents and other supporters looked on with concern during the half-hour delay. During that time, the two teams decided to postpone the game and rescheduled it for Friday afternoon at 4, to be played in its entirety.

Severna Park, ranked third in the metro area, is 9-1 on the season and 1-0 in Anne Arundel's South Division. Annapolis is 5-2 and 1-0.
