On another rainy afternoon, Dublin girls played a young team from Proctor Academy. Dublin’s starting players completely dominated the first 12 minutes of the game, sprinting out to a 8-0 lead and only allowing a couple of intrusions to the offensive zone. Center midfielder Stella Davis (Dublin, NH) won every draw she took, creating a lopsided field. Liberal substitutions occurred throughout the rest of the game, with many new players getting extended playing time. There were a couple of rough defensive moments in the first half, but the newer players settled down, started to see and understand their assignments and played a solid defensive game in the second half. As a result, Proctor Academy was never able to mount a significant challenge and a number of the Dublin starters enjoyed the second half cheering from the bench.
Emma Williams (Concord, NH) had her first career hat-trick and has now scored five goals in her last two games. Tatiyana Dunkers (Newark, NJ) scored her first goal of the year and All-Star defensive player Shaneil Wynter (Brooklyn, NY) moved up to attack for the last five minutes of the game and was able to put one behind the Proctor goalie. Other scorers for Dublin: Stella Davis (Dublin, NH) 2G, 1A; Sabrina Hayden (Marlborough, NH) 3G, 1A; and Bette Imhoff (Dublin, NH) 5G, 1A.
