Girls Varsity Battles EIL’s Best

Gabby Gutman ’11

BCDS Girls SoccerThis season Girls Varsity soccer had their in league season opener against a team that continued through the EIL and NEPSAC tournaments last year, Newton Country Day. Despite all the fear and anticipation before the game, when the starting eleven stepped on the field it was gone. We all realized we had grown as a team, and we could to better than our 6-0 loss to Newton Country Day last year. After a hard fought 80 minutes of play, the score came down to 3-1 Newton Country Day. The defense put up a great fight, and sophomore Carly Furr had a great shot from the left side going right past their goalie. Along with Carly there were some great plays being made by the defensive line, and sophomore Olivia Dynan played hard until the very end of the game.

Unfortunately, the weeks competition did not get any easier with Pingree two days later. Pingree is another strong team in the EIL: going undefeated last year in league play and going on to the EIL tournament. We were afraid that the usually strong Pingree squad would make it hard for us to prove how far we had come since last season. In the first five minutes of the game, we scored. The Pingree bench was in automatic shock, and none of the players on the field could believe it either. With all this excitement we played a great half of soccer, only allowing one goal to be scored. At half time everyone was so happy; we were tied with the defending EIL champions. In the second half both teams came out wanting the win, and unfortunately Pingree was able to get in another two goals. The final score was 3-1 just like the Newton Country Day game.

Beaver Country Day SchoolThe last game of the week was against LCA. We were all craving a win, which we needed to boost our morale and prove to ourselves that all the hard work we were putting in could pay off. We got off to a bit of a sloppy start, but we prevented them from scoring. At half time, the game was tied 0-0. At the start of the second half everyone was extremely motivated. We had some great shots by junior Emily Meltzer and freshman Tess Anderson ’13, that just barely missed the net. The final score was 0-0.

We are looking forward to a great season with many wins on our record!
