Norwood 6, Milton 2
Overall Game Summary:
Great start to the season, strong win against a hardworking Milton team. Controlled play most of the 1st half, keeping the pressure on Milton offensively. I thought we did an excellent job moving the ball up the field and transferring the ball. In the past, we have had difficulty executing offensively however today we passed the ball extremely well and when given the opportunity took the shot when presented. Overall, we have areas that need improvement but if we can continue to shot the ball like we did today, we should be able to compete with the best in our league.
- Allison Ryan – scored 4 goals. Put us up 2-0 and then scored our final 3 goals to help seal the win.
- Jenny O’Donnell – 1 goal & 2 assists – had a great game at right wing – her ability to distribute the ball and get her teammates involved while also getting herself involved was a huge reason why we were successful today
- Kayla Garczynski (1 goal), Sammy Hayes (2 assists) and Lauren Harrington - all 3 players had strong games controlling the ball in the middle and right side of the field
- Courtney Fernandes - solid effort in goal.
