2014 JVB Highlights (Coach Adams)
Garnet Valley (4/8): Despite the rainy, cold weather for our first game, the JVB girls came away with a big 7-7 tie against Garnet Valley. Last year Garnet Valley was our toughest game so I certainly think this bodes well for the rest of our season! Christin Ealer came up with 5 big saves in goal during the first half to keep us competitive. Goals were scored by Kirsten Dirks (2), Paige Turley (2), Hope Skelly (2), and Ashton Bayle. I can’t wait to see how the girls do against Radnor on Friday!
Downingtown West (4/13): Today the girls started with a goal right off the first draw and they just kept on going in this 14-4 win against Downingtown West! Anna Hayden led the team in both goals (3) and assists (3) which is a credit to her value as a teammate. Emma Scudder recovered 3 tough ground balls and made it look easy on a field that was covered in tall, think grass. On the circle, Ashton Bayle came up with 3 consecutive draw controls in the second half. Overall, it was a great first win for the team!
Haverford (4/15): Building off of their win on Monday, the girls came away today with a big 17-1 win against Haverford! Stoga dominated ball possession from the beginning and scoring was spread out over 12 different players. Congratulations to Maddy Nikolic, Rachel Di Rico, Izzy Fialko, Emily Maneri, and Lexi Serafim for scoring their first high school goals! In addition, over 70% of our goals were assisted which was great to see. During the game, a lot of girls got the opportunity to play in positions where they don’t normally play which was also really fun to see. Great game ladies!
Unionville (4/21): Today was a tough loss for the girls. Although we led for the majority of the game, Unionville scored a late goal to go up 9-8. Unfortunately, time ran out before we could get the shot off to tie it. The girls are pumped to play them again later in the season though so we can win the next one! All of our players got playing time even with the close score. Rachel Di Rico had an awesome game on the defensive end coming up with 4 crucial ground balls and some big double teams to force turnovers. Hope Skelly led the attack with 4 goals and 1 assist. Other goals were scored by Izzy Fialko (2), Kirsten Dirks, and Paige Turley.
Garnet Valley (4/22): The girls bounced back from a tough loss the day before to beat Garnet Valley 9-5 in the rain. Having previously tied Garnet Valley in our first game of the season, it felt great to come home with the win this time! It truly was a team effort. Attack kept possession in their end and made the most of their opportunities; six of the nine goals were assisted. Julia Weiss (1 goal, 2 assists) and Anna Hayden (2 goals, 1 assist, 2 draw controls) led the attack while other goals were scored by Hope Skelly (2), Ashton Bayle (2), Emma Scudder, Paige Turley, and Lauren Cauley. On defense, Maddy Nikolic, Rachel Di Rico, and Caroline Buck helped hold Garnet Valley to only 2 goals in the second half. Collectively, the team forced 5 crucial turnovers in our defensive end. Great win ladies!
West Chester Rustin (4/24): Not knowing what to expect going into this game, the girls came out strong and kept up the intensity the whole game! Julia Weiss led the attack with 3 goals and 1 assist. In addition, Katie Chung scored her first goal of the season and Rosalynn Simmons had her first assist – congrats Katie & Ros! Other goals were scored by Caleigh Ford (3), Izzy Fialko (2), Margo Pancoast, Hope Skelly, Emily Maneri, and Paige Turley. Christin Ealer had 3 saves in cage to hold Rustin to just 1 goal. Way to go Stoga!
Notre Dame (4/29): Despite going down 2-0 to start the game, Stoga came back strong today to eventually beat Notre Dame 19-9! Leading the attack was Caleigh Ford (4 goals) and Paige Turley (2 goals, 2 assists, 4 draw controls). In addition, Erin Weeks and Caroline Buck scored their first goals of the season – congratulations girls! Kirsten Dirks also had a great game today on both ends of the field contributing two assists, 1 goal, and 2 caused turnovers. Christin Ealer came up huge today in cage making 9 saves which helped preserve the win. Awesome job Stoga!
Downingtown West (5/1): I was so incredibly proud of the girls today for so many reasons! Even though we won 8-2, I was more impressed by the teamwork and selflessness displayed on the field by every member of the team. We went into the game hoping to get closer to our season goal of having every girl on the team score. Despite having a lot of easy shooting opportunities, the girls did all that they could to help out the three remaining players who still need to score. Their teamwork paid off big time! When Taylor Heron and Ros Simmons scored their first goals of the season, you should’ve heard the roar from our sideline! Next week we just need one more girl to score to meet our goal. Other goals today were scored by Hope (2), Anna, Georgia, Izzy, and Caleigh. Thank you for being such a great team today ladies!
Radnor (5/4): We finally got to play Radnor after weather cancellations earlier in the season but it was well worth the wait! Although the score was tied 4-4 at half, the girls readjusted in the second half and worked hard for their 12-7 win! Leading the scoring was Anna Hayden with 3 goals, 1 assist, and 3 draw controls on the circle. Izzy Fialko also contributed at center with 3 draw controls and 2 goals. Other goals were scored by Hope Skelly (2), Paige Turley (2), Emma Scudder, Rachel Di Rico, and Lauren Cauley. On defense, Georgia McLoughlin, Emily Maneri, Julia Weiss, Maddy Nikolic, Kirsten Dirks, Rachel, Emma, and Izzy combined for an impressive 10 forced turnovers. Abby Deeter came up big in goal during the second half to make 4 crucial saves which kept us in the game. Great work Stoga!
Haverford (5/6): After a slow start to the game, the girls got their heads together and ended up beating Haverford 13-1. We went into the game with one goal in mind – get the last girl on our team who hadn’t scored yet to score. When Claire Marren finally scored in the second half, the whole team erupted in cheers! Congratulations Claire! I am very proud of all of the girls for working together as a team to help every field player on our team score at least once this season. Aside from Claire’s goal, other goals were scored by Sara Hole, Anna Hayden (2), Julia Weiss, Margo Pancoast, Hope Skelly (2), Paige Turley (3), and Kirsten Dirks (2). Christin Ealer was not scored upon in the first half and she made 3 great saves. Abby Deeter also contributed 2 saves in the second half. One more game ladies!
