    Miami just upset Stanford (ranked 17 in nation) in California in the first round of the NCAA field hockey championship tournament!! Miami will play Duke in Durham on Saturday. Paula Portugal is a one woman wrecking crew!

    Paula Portugal is one of the top players in the country based on stats alone. It's amazing she is only a junior and will be back next year even better! Congrats to players and coaches, first NCAA win in our second trip to the tourney!

    Great news! Tough road though, Stanford and then Duke? Even in field hockey they seem to stack the deck against us.

    Sweet 16!!  A few weeks ago we played #2 Duke and lost 2-0, so we should at least be familiar with them and know that we can play with them.  The ridiculously tough non-league schedule has certainly worked out well as we were not intimidated by Stanford and were used to playing against girls that good or better.

    This was the play-in game, fwiw. Stanford also was on the verge of not making it.

    Still considered NCAA tournament win though!

    Very true, but Stanford is a traditional powerhouse in women's field hockey. Beating them in the NCAA tournament even in an off-year for them is YUGE!!

    Anyone else think it's weird that Portugal is from Spain?
    :D

    Found out her name isMariona. By some accounts the beat player on the team. Tore her ACL and got a medical redshirt. They will be losing 1 starter and getting Mariona back next year. They will be even better.

    Miami was down 3-0 at half, but has fought back.  Now down 3-2 with 6 minutes to go.

    Duke won 4-2.  Great season.  It sounds like we could be back again next year.
  • Ended up going to the game at the last minute. The team put in a great effort. I don't know much about field hockey, but they certainly held their own against the #2 seed, and they never gave up. Duke seemed to get called for a number of fouls/penalties, playing a bit more aggressive. I believe we took 4 corners and scored off 2 of those, I don't think they took any. Pretty sure Miami parents/ families/fans outnumbered Duke fans, and we were definitely louder. Next year should be something to look forward to!
