EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — On Sept. 12, the Mainland Regional field hockey allowed 10 goals to powerful Ocean City, the No. 8 team in the state. But that was an anomaly for the Mustangs' defense. In Mainland's six other games, the defense has allowed just three goals while posting three shutouts.
The defense and midfield came through big time on Wednesday night in the annual "Pink Game" against Egg Harbor Township, holding the host Eagles without a shot in the second half while holding on for a 2-1 victory.
