Girls Varsity Soccer Strikes Again
by James Maguire on Friday, October 11th, 2013
With a record of 5-2-1, Girl’s varsity soccer is off to a great start. Led by senior captains Eliza Ticknor (I) and Chandler Quintin (I), the team has demonstrated strength during both practices and games since their pre-season at Team Prep camp. The team’s success is the result of a lock-down defense that has only conceded three goals in seven games. Incoming defender Brie Lawson (IV) has stepped up and become an important part of the lineup, contributing unwavering performances to the successful defense.
Highlighted by determination and relentless preparation, the “Wolfpack” is characterized by their grit and never-say-die attitude. They have four 1-0 wins, and a 1-1 tie. Because of these low scoring games, the girls have spent recent practices working on creating dangerous offensive opportunities. The girls’ one loss came against a high-powered Tabor team.
According to goalie Michaela Brickley (II), “Everyone works really hard and there is great camaraderie on the team.” This hard work is paying off. The Milton offense netted two goals against Exeter on Saturday, and Niki Young (II) has had a goal in five different games this season. She is ranked sixth in the ISL for points (goals and assists).
Girls’ soccer is currently ranked second in the ISL. Next, the team will face winless BB&N. Milton is in a great position moving forward this season, and appear to be one of the premier teams in the league. Fans can look forward to watching a great team this year, and cheering on at Nobles day on the last day of the fall season.
