In a reversal from the day before, today's game against Proctor Academy JV was played in sunny, dry weather that was 30 degrees warmer. Dublin controlled from the start due to solid defense all over the field. Our offensive execution was hindered early by a number of dropped passes due to sticks that had tightened up as they dried from the previous day's weather. Despite the drops, the girls battled to retain possession. Midway through the first half, we started to roll offensively.
We built a significant lead at the half. The second half featured a number of newer players getting extended playing time. Their teammates cheered on newbies Emma Williams and Madeline Pastan as they both had multiple scoring opportunities that they just missed finishing on. Amani Natson was again outstanding in goal making several spectacular saves and taking a shutout into the last five minutes of the game.
Scoring for Dublin: Adunni Abrams (2G); Stella Davis (1A); Hope Fowler (1G); Sabrina Hayden (3G,3A); Bette Imhoff (5G); and Fiona Johnson (1A). Amani Natson with 9 saves.
