SHREWSBURY – The Shrewsbury varsity field hockey team had its season come to an end, Nov. 13, in the elite eight round of the MIAA state championship tournament. 

The Colonials headed north to Andover for this latest playoff game. After battling with the Golden Warriors, Shrewsbury ultimately fell on the wrong side of a 1-0 score. 

Eighth ranked Shrewsbury previously beat Durfee and Doherty High Schools in the Round of 32 and the Round of 16 respectively. On Nov. 13, though, they ran into an Andover team that had rumbled through the regular season on its way to the number one seed in the MIAA, Division I field hockey bracket

“Congrats on a great season ladies,” tweeted Shrewsbury High School Athletic Director Jay Costa after the game.
