MARSHFIELD – The Twinfield-Cabot girls’ soccer team lost a pair of tight matches last week to Blue Mountain and Danville, falling to 0-4 on the season.
Jordan Alley scored a hat-trick to lead Blue Mountain to a hard-fought 5-2 road win over the Lady Trojans last Monday. Ginger Klarich and Aydyn Paige found the back of the net for the home team to keep the match at 3-2 at intermission, but Alley and the Lady Bucks would pull away in the second half. Keegan Tillotson and Karli Blood each scored a goal for the visitors, Kyra Nelson tallied four assists on the day, and Felicity Sulham recorded 13 saves in the win.
“I’m more worried about how this young team plays the game of soccer right rather than the outcome and I thought collectively there were a lot of good take-aways from the match. The girls did a really good job of keeping the ball on the ground and playing our game. I was happy to see Aydyn and Ginger get rewarded for their hard work with a couple of scores,” said head coach Seth Wilmott.
Lilli Klark and Lilah Hall tallied a goal and an assist apiece to lead Danville to a 3-0 home win on Thursday. The Lady Bears took a 2-0 lead into the break and Leah Klark (three saves) and the defense would stiffen the rest of the way. Ida Astick made six stops for Twinfield-Cabot in the loss. Danville improved to 3-2 on the season with the victory.
“The girls played hard in another tough match. I’m hopeful that we will be where we need to be by the end of the season, but it’s going to take some time and some hard lessons for us along the way for us to come together,” said Wilmott.
The Lady Trojans will go out of division this week for another pair of tough match-ups as they hosted (Cabot Recreation Field) Enosburg on Monday and BFA-Fairfax on Friday.
