When the Broadneck field hockey team found itself without a goalie at the start of the season, junior Alyssa Cranska quickly raised her hand to help out.

She's been turning back shots ever since.

Visiting Anne Arundel County rival Chesapeake yesterday, Cranska made 12 saves, and forwards Megan Hollerbach and Lindsay Rawley provided the offense in leading the No. 14 Bruins to a 2-0 win over the No. 7 Cougars.

Hollerbach was set up by Rawley late in the first half for the game-winner, and the two connected again in the second half - this time with Rawley scoring as the Bruins improved to 7-1 overall and 7-0 in county play.

Cranska, a converted defender, is the backup goalie for the Bruins' lacrosse team. She has appeared right at home in the field hockey cage.

"It's a lot of the same fundamentals, so I thought I should step up to help the team," she said. "I like it a lot. You use your feet more, and you're so much more into the game because there's so much time spent in the [scoring] circle. It's intense."
