Game Summary

Veteran coach Alison Croft brought her Gunners to town this past Saturday led by Guilford native and standout goalkeeper Catherine Lawrence 18′. We were able to control the run of play for the first half by being patient and cycling the ball from side to side until our opportunity to break The Gun’s defensive lines presented itself. Despite heavy pressure from Elise Namnoum 19′, Liz Roach 18′, and Alaina Vermilya 20′ up front, Gunnery’s captain goalkeeper Lawrence continually denied our attempts on goal and saw her team into halftime at 0-0. Alaina Vermilya 20′ broke the score open in the second half when she ran onto a perfectly placed pass from Ellery Finn 18′. From the top of the penalty area she unleashed a rocket to the upper left corner that Lawrence had no chance of saving. It was Veronica Garcia 18′ next to score quite possibly one of the prettiest goals we have ever seen. Liz roach 18′ collected the ball 25 yards out on the right flank. She floated a perfect ball over three Gunnery defenders directly into the path of an onrushing Garcia. From the top of the penalty area Garcia lept into the air and one time volleyed the ball with her right foot lashing it into the net leaving Lawrence with no chance. Gunnery never gave up and pressured our goal late necessitating a goalmouth collision between Gunnery’s Savannah Popick 20′, Reagan Kerecz 20′, and Anneliese Sonju 21′. In the end Kerecz 20′ made the save and sealed the score at 2-0. We go to Wilbraham and Monson on Wednesday.
