Lebanon Federal Credit Union Presents Athlete of the Week, Ending Sept. 24

Forget merely smoldering. Where there’s smoke, there’s heat.

It may appear that she’s a glass of water, but Grace Francis and the Annville-Cleona field hockey are on fire.

This week, Francis and the Little Dutchmen stayed red hot. The junior midfielder tallied four more goals and an assist to spur Annville-Cleona to a 3-1 slate.

It all started with Francis’ goal during a 3-0 triumph at McCaskey on Monday. Then, there was the goal and assist during the Little Dutchmen’s critical 4-3 victory over Lancaster Mennonite on Wednesday.

On Friday, Francis netted a pair of tallies in Annville-Cleona’s 5-0 road blanking of Northern Lebanon. Finally on Saturday, the Little Dutchmen dropped a tough 3-1 decision at Bishop McDevitt.

Those three league wins pushed the Little Dutchmen to the top of the Lancaster-Lebanon Section Four standings and moved them to 8-3 on the fall campaign. Annville-Cleona currently stands ninth in the District Three rankings for an A classification which akes 16 teams for its postseason.

On the year, Francis now has ten goals and one assist.
