Good Win for Girls JV...

Suffield - 2
Pomfret - 0

On a beautiful fall day, the girls rebounded from a short strong of losses to notch another victory as the seasons heads towards completion. It was a solid back and forth affair that pitted the improved skill of Suffield vs. a fast, streaking team from Pomfret. Much of the play was dictated by the Tigers, but Pomfret was quick to take advantage of any miscues, forcing our defense to be on their toes and communicate well. The first 35 minutes went scoreless, and the first 14 minutes of the second was the same. We had chances, but their goalie was up to the challenge...that is until Tayla broke open the scoring. A throw in from Anna Wilcox, a deft handle and a cross by Emma Winiarski to a crashing Tayla Zaidie put Suffield up 1-0. In short....throw,cross,crash,BOOM! After a Pomfret restart, Lilly Rotter got the second goal all on her own....A steal in the attacking third with room in front of her allowed her to carry and then shoot a beautiful bending shot from the right side that dipped in under the crossbar and into the left side netting. The abbreviated version....Steal, gather, carry, BOOM! Pomfret continued to battle and kept us playing both ends of the field for the remaining 20 minutes. Suffield came away with a hard fought and rewarding victory and the girls should be pleased with their success. Next up is the season finale vs Hopkins on Wednesday at home at 2:00 PM.
