Game Summary

The 2017 season kicked off under clear skies against a quality opponent in CHS. Led by the ever dangerous Ranita Muriel 19′, CHS looked to counter attack quickly and exploit any open space in our defense. The back four led by sisters Maise and Caroline Smith 19′ were able to contain CHS’ counter by keeping the defense compact, and thwarting their chances on goal. Both teams played to a draw by the end of the first half. The second half saw the game open up, giving Puerto Rican international player Veronica Garcia 18′ space in the mid third to maneuver and find angles to pass and dribble. Kaitlyn Suller 22′ and Ellery Finn 19′ worked to move up and down the touchlines to provide pressure on the ball when needed in defense and fill the open spaces in attack to provide passing options. CHS goalkeeper Soph Luft 18′ was strong the whole game coming off her line and stopping shots we put on frame. Persistent work to get in behind CHS’ defenders by forwards Liz Roach 18′, and Elise Namnoum 19′ paid off to help create goals for Veronica Garcia 19′ and Alaina Vermilya 20′. The game was a nice example of two teams working to play good combination passing soccer. We are on the road this Wednesday at MacDuffie School, hope to see you there!
