Girls' Varsity Soccer
vs Berkshire School
Score/Result: 1-3 L
Saturday, September 22, 2012
Taft suffered a disappointing game against The Berkshire School on Saturday, September 22, 2012 on Taft’s campus. Despite composed play and lots of offensive opportunities, Taft could not find the back of the net and loss 1-3.
Taft opened up the scoreboard midway through the first half when Shelby Meckstroth ’13 received a pass from the left side of the field. Meckstroth would quickly turn to find a sprinting Peyton Swift ’15 up the right sideline. Swift would beat a defender and finish a shot to the far post earning her first goal in a Taft jersey. Although Taft outshot Berkshire and put significant pressure on their back line, they were unable to find the net again as Berkshire scored 3 unanswered goals. It was a frustrating day for the Rhinos, but the squad will need to move forward in preparation for two tough matches next week. The first is at Rye Country Day School on Thursday at 4:30 PM and home against Loomis Chaffee School at 2:30 PM.
