Game Summary

We were right back at it Saturday with class C powerhouse Greens Farms Academy. In her first year with the Dragons, talented head coach Freya Coombs brought an organized and balanced team that focused on playing proper football. We started off strong, and within the first five minutes had a quality service across the goalmouth that we were unable to convert. GFA struck 20 minutes in first when captain Ella Murphy 19′ took the open space we gave her from just six yards out and buried it home to put the Dragons up 1-0. We showed great resolve and worked our way back. Just ten minutes later Ellery Finn 18′ hit a swerving corner from the right side that tucked into the goal just over GFA goalkeeper Samara Cohen 21′ to knot the score at 1-1. From there both teams worked to play to feet and find the weak spots in each others defenses. The 40 minute mark rang with both teams knotted at 1-1. The second half turned hot literally and figuratively. A humid and hot day made for a game of many subs, and they were needed as the ball played from end to end at a high pace. Ellery Finn 18′ was the hero of the day as she slipped in two more goals for an unbelievable HAT TRICK performance. Alaina Vermilya 20′ bombed in her first goal of the year to make it 4-2 Walker’s by the 80 minute mark. A great day of up and down soccer! Next match is Tuesday home vs. Hamden Hall, hope to see you there!
