Game Summary

After a long bus ride and short warm up the team got off to a fast start against perennial class C contender MacDuffie. Ellery Finn 18′, Veronica Garcia 18′, and Kaitlyn Suller 22′ furiously patrolled the midfield to establish the game’s tone, and looking to connect early with forwards Alaina Vermilya 20′, and Elise Namnoum 19′. We were able to effectively spread out and fill the open spaces to circulate the ball quickly in the mid third. We found the open space behind MacDuffie’s tough back four, and were able to play crosses into the box, but to no result. MacDuffie’s ever dangerous Ana Ludkiewicz 19′ was a threat with the ball at her feet, and was cause for concern on the MacDuffie counter. Twin powers Maise and Caroline Smith 19′ combined with Amanda Gould 19′ to hold Ludkiewcz in check, and we had luck on our side as MacDuffie squandered their first half chances. The first half concluded with both teams at 0-0. The second half directive for us was to continue to put our stamp on the game. MacDuffie came out and were able to make that a difficult proposition for us. Mounting pressure midway through the second half made it necessary for Reagan Kerecz 20′ to come off her line to deny MacDuffie on a set piece from 25 yards out. Veronica Garcia traded chances with MacDuffie when her direct kick from 25 yards out just sailed over the bar. Lizzy Strapp 21′ and Bones Dunn 21′ were motivators coming in and providing energy and support in the midfield. Liz Roach 17′ was superb in her efforts up front and strength when holding the ball for us. Gabby Garcia 19′ was rock solid on the right side of the defense and was instrumental in denying MacDuffie’s late threats. Both team’s ended the game spent of energy, and a result of 0-0
