All three Niagara-Orleans League field hockey games were decided by the same low 1-0 margin this afternoon as Kenmore nipped Medina, Barker trimmed Newfane and Wilson edged past Roy-Hart.

Kenmore scored with just seven minutes remaining to improve to 2-6 as Medina slips to 1-7.

Jillian Moeller scored just two minutes into the second half to provide the margin of victory for Barker as Grayce Weller on defense and Katrina Clare on offense also had good games for the Lady Raiders.

Newfane goalie Mia Ludwig had a strong game making 13 saves.

Barker is now 6-1 and Newfane 2-6 in N-O action.

JoJo Turvey scored in the first half, off an assist from Olivia Mitchell, to lift Wilson past Roy-Hart.

Wilson regains the .500 mark at 4-4 while Roy-Hart slips to 5-3.
