Taft JV Girls squad improved their record today with a 8-0 win against Kent School. The first 20 minutes of the game saw a dominant Big Red, testing the Kent backline and goalkeeper early. Shots and 1v1 challenges came from feisty and opportunistic attackers Julia Low, Stirling Thompson, and Hollen Spain. Janse Schoonmaker and Reese Bragg were both forces to be reckoned with on the wing, as was a skilled and goal hungry Kate Vermylen. Taft was prolific today in their scoring with six different players contributing to the goal scoring. The Rhino’s first goal came from freshman Sam Ouellette who fired from way outside the 18 to the upper 90. Taft’s second goal came from veteran midfielder Kyra McNerney shortly after; McNerney displayed some deft footwork atop the 18 to lose her defender and launched a rocket into the side-netting. Hollen Spain was relentless up top for the Rhinos today, scoring two goals for the Big Red, helping solidify the Rhino lead. The second half was home to some truly inspiring defense spearheaded by Cierra Ouellette, Piper Desorcie, Blake Gray, Hannah Eliot, Leigh Root, and Reese Bragg. Eliot and Gray kickstarted our attack many times by deftly playing to feet, and distributing the ball upfield to the speedy midfield. There were some close calls where it seemed like Kent might find their way onto the scoreboard, but Annabelle Wyman’s calm, cool, and collected presence in the net was stalwart. She earned herself a shutout. Angie Han was firey on both sides of the ball today, making through passes, and putting up a fight in the midfield, thus squashing Kent opportunities. The second half found even more goals; Kate Vermylen and Hannah Eliot scored their first goals of the season. A fresh Reese Bragg, back from injury, was able to find the back of the net as well off of a Julia Low assist. Vermylen scored her second goal of the game and the season to close out the scoring on a beautiful Parent’s Day for the Rhinos. The Rhinos will be taking on Westminster away this Wednesday, November 1. Come out and support!
