Field Hockey: St. Ignatius jumps out early to rout Marin Catholic

By Matthew Snyder

PACIFICA – Mired in a difficult start to the season, in which the St. Ignatius field hockey team lost its first three games without scoring a goal, head coach Maisa Badawy decided to devote significant portions of recent practices toward drills focused on finishing scoring opportunities.

That extra work paid off on a blustery Monday afternoon at Fairmont Park, where the Wildcats scored early and often en route to a thorough 9-0 non-league victory over visiting Marin Catholic of Kentfield.
