Girls played a very athletic team from Stratton Mountain School this afternoon on a beautiful spring day. Dublin had frequent early control but unforced errors prevented efficient finishing. Draw control started to go SMS's way and they had a number of good offensive possessions. A late SMS goal made for a competitive 4-3 game at the half.
Dublin came out with greater offensive intensity in the second half, scoring nine goals in the period. A switch to Aggie Macy (Dublin, NH) at the center dot led to better draw control. As a result, Dublin had much better control over the flow of the game. The defense was excellent forcing four charges in the latter part of the game. A couple of tough calls led to free position goals to keep SMS within striking distance.
Scoring for Dublin: Bette Imhoff (Dublin, NH) 9G; Stella Davis (Dublin, NH) 2G; Sabrina Hayden (Marlborough, NH) 1G, 1A; Adunni Abrams (Brooklyn, NY) 1A; and Aggie Macy (Dublin, NH) 1A. Goaltender Amani Natson (Hillside, NJ) had seven saves.
