Hyde School – 1
MacDuffie School – 0
Even with a temporary bus break down and several team members still unable to take the field, the Hyde School Girls Varsity Soccer Team earned its second victory of the season Saturday September 18 at MacDuffie School.
Hyde was able to control the field for much of the game with Mari Barnett ’11 and Bryn Nolan ’12 moving the ball through the midfield. Though the halftime score was 0-0, Hyde had the upper hand as the teams moved into the last forty minutes of play. With 29:40 left in the game, Nolan, outstanding all game, hustled to intercept a MacDuffie goal kick, blasting the ball past the keeper into the upper right corner of the net, giving Hyde the only goal of the game. MacDuffie worked to earn a few fast breaks, threatening the Hyde lead throughout the final minutes of the game, but Caitlyn Colley ’11 and Marcy Altobello ’13maintained composure on defense to keep their opponent scoreless. Stand-in goal keeper Hope Eldridge ‘11 made the shut-out possible with 9 saves.
The WolfPack looks to continue to improve its 2-1 record and reconnect as a team, facing Lincoln School Wednesday September 22 at home.
