The Lady Eagles continued their fantastic season this past weekend in Philadelphia, squaring off against the Philly Hawks and Boston Lady Demons.
After a bit of a late start, we took on the Demon/Hawks, in a high-scoring game that was neck and neck until the third quarter. Despite nearing thunder, we finished out the third quarter with a narrow lead, only to endure a perilously long gap before the fourth quarter with a show of lightning and impressive rain. But the long delay did not drag down the momentum, as we hammered in a couple more goals to secure the lead.
The Lady Eagles emerged victorious in our highest scoring game of the season, with goals from Molly, Mims, and Mariam – not to mention a hat trick by Baltimore’s Kristin Poti, earning her best on ground for the match. Strong play in the backline led by Bel and Ella and in the midfield by Kendall Jennings, Molly, and Alex allowed for good transitions up the field, creating many opportunities for the forward line.
The Lady Eagles continue to grow stronger as a team with each match, and we hope to carry this momentum into the final stretch of the regular season and into Nationals in October. Our next game will be August 25 in Boston, where will face off once again with the Boston Lady Demons and Philly Hawks. Then on September 8, we head to New York for the East Coast/ West Coast Showdown, which should be a fun and exciting day of footy between all the women’s teams on the East Coast and San Francisco. Stay tuned!
