Lady Trojans Fall to Fairfax
by Ken Brown
MARSHFIELD – The Twinfield-Cabot girls’ soccer team ran into a buzzsaw last week in Division III powerhouse BFA-Fairfax, as they continue to search for their first win of the season.
Ava Ardovino scored four goals for the second time this season to lead the Lady Bullets to a dominating 10-0 road win over Twinfield-Cabot last Friday. Ardovino was supported by a balanced attack with Adeleine Larose, Taylor Duquette, Paige Cargill, Anna Sargent, and Raegan Decker all finding the back of the net. Ida Astick was peppered with 24 shots on the day, stopping 14 in the loss.
“Carly Mancini, Alice McLane, and Aydyn Paige were solid for us in the middle against a very good Division III team and I’ve been very impressed with how they’ve performed for us this season. Ida played out of her mind for our defense and I couldn’t be more proud of her and how she played,” said head coach Seth Wilmott.
BFA-Fairfax improved to 5-1 on the season, with their only loss coming to a Division II Missisquoi Valley team that has six wins on the year. The Lady Bullets have made it to the division III quarterfinals three straight years and have outscored their opponents 38-4 in 2022.
“Fairfax is probably the toughest team we are going to face all season and I saw a lot of good stuff coming from our young team in this match. The girls were able to connect and play out of the back at times. There are certainly things we need to keep working and improving on, but I still think we are on track and we’ll learn valuable lessons as a young team playing against these bigger programs,” said Wilmott.
The Lady Trojans will look to get on track this week as they travel to Blue Mountain on Wednesday before hosting Winooski over the weekend.
