Game Summary

Walker’s produced a complete performance (an improvement even on the last game out against KO) to win in stylish fashion against a good physical Marianapolis team. Another shuffle in defense to cover an absent keeper and new strike partnership in offense saw Lauren Krupnikoff ’23, Gabi Valinho ’21, Heidi Burley ’22 and Paige Murphy ’26 interchanging short passes often to create scoring chances. Heidi Burley took one of those passes on a clean two-touch finish to open the scoring only to see Marianapolis tie the game before half-time from a long ball through the Walker’s defense. In the second half Walker’s continued to work hard to keep possession and fashion chances through a packed defense. After good work out wide Gabi Valinho finished superbly into the top corner from 22 yards out making it 2-1 and then again from the penalty spot after a hand ball to finish the game off at 3-1.
