Bow 8, Keene 0

Key players: Bow – Cara Van Dyke (3 goals), Ashley Wallen (2 goals), Sidney Roberge (goal), Juliette Tarsa (goal), Leah Gallier (goal), Anna Zerba (assist), Lexi Insana (assist), Brylie Gelinas (assist), Lexana Farr (assist), Bridget Hilton (shutout as goalie)

Highlights:  The Blackbirds did a good job stopping many of the Falcons’ scoring opportunities before Roberge opened the scoring and Wallen added another goal off a ball from Zerba three minutes later.

Coach’s quote:  “Our defense did a great job distributing out of the back and making overlapping runs to get in our attack. Midfielders worked the ball in possession and our forwards did a great job checking back for the ball and making runs. Great overall team effort, the girls were on the front foot today and had to work for it as Keene never stopped playing.” – Bow’s Jay Vogt

Records: Bow 10-3-1; Keene 0-13-1
