Game Summary

Once again the rain broke just in time for us to get a match in. This time is it was Berkshire who came to play on our home turf. Fresh off a frustrating loss the Saturday before we flew out of the gates and were able to put Berkshire under immediate pressure. Caroline Smith 19′, captain Maise Smith 19′, Julia Luciani 19′, and Anneliese Sonju 21′ stepped up to mid field and denied Berkshire ample operating space, and giving Ava Strohmeyer 21′, Amanda Gould 19′, captain Elise Namnoum 19′, and Lizzy Strapp 21′ the ability to get compact and win loose balls in the midfield. Once consolidating possession we were able to get the ball to Alaina Vermilya 20′ and Claudia Luciani 21′ who did good work to get behind Berkshire’s back line. Despite it all we struggled to really generate any major threats on goal, and by the end of the first half we were tied 0-0. The second half was a better affair as we were able to create better chances on goal as Brooke Delorey 20′, Illi Grossman 22′, and Nora Griffiths 21′ all had near misses that could have turned the score card in our favor. The Berkshire defense was strong though and in the end all we could manage was a 0-0 draw. KO next!
