Acton-Boxborough Girls Soccer Falls To L-S
The Colonials lose 2-0 to the Warriors.
Hannah Rosenblatt is only a freshman, but she is certainly playing like a seasoned veteran.
The striker netted all of her team’s goals Thursday afternoon helping lead the Lincoln-Sudbury girls soccer squad to a 2-0 victory over Dual County League-foe Acton-Boxborough.
“I’m really pleased with how she has progressed,” said Warriors head coach Kate Berry. “We knew she was a skilled player who had a lot of potential. And I feel as though every day in practice and every game day, she’s been that much better. I feel as if she’s a player who is starting to settle down and get comfortable with the girls she is playing with.”
With the victory, L-S remains undefeated at 5-0. A-B, meanwhile, falls to 3-4-1 on the season.
“I’m disappointed by [the loss],” said Colonials coach Lee Billiard. “I mean, they had three shots the whole game and we conceded two. I felt we played a lot better than we’ve done recently. We had a better performance and it kind of sucks we are walking away losers from that game because I thought we deserved something out of it, to be honest with you.”
Rosenblatt broke the egg shell ten minutes into the game. She fed a perfectly timed pass to a streaking Madison Acton, who dribbled the ball down to the left side of goal and blasted a laser shot. Colonials goalie Ellen Conway dove to stop that shot, but Rosenblatt rushed in to bury the rebound.
“She has the confidence and wherewithal to go to goal now,” said Berry. “So that’s nice.”
A-B applied offensive pressure in the last five minutes of the first half with Maya Jarostchuk, Kayleigh Sye, and Jennifer Bebe working effectively on the right side. But A-B would come up empty.
The Colonials would continue to press starting the second half, and from the left side of the field, Jarostchuk placed a beautiful cross intended for Alex Spangler, but Warriors keeper Katie Sia was able to intercept the ball.
The sealer would arrive at the 52nd mark as Leah McCullough booted a long direct kick into the goalie box. The ball came off of Conway to Rosenblatt, who headed it home.
