Girls fall short to Deerfield...
The day way gray and cold, the field was wet, and the mood was blah. The soccer for the most part was good as Suffield dictated much of the play, but as sometimes happens, the team that controls the play does not win the game. Such was the game today. Our passing and communication was good. Our defense held tough against a strong front three with speed that could cross the ball well. Our offense got off 14 shots on the day, but they either went high, or right to the goalie. Deerfield took a 2-0 lead in the first half on two nice goals. Suffield kept working hard and scored with 6 minutes remaining as Emma Winiarski took a ball off a throw in, dribbled past a defender and tucked the ball in under the crossbar and over the hands of the goalie. We continued to push, but were not able to tie the score in the waning moments. The travel portion of our season is over as we play host to our final two games of the season. Next up is a 3:15 tilt vs. Pomfret on Sanderson Field.
