Hyde Bath – 1

Hyde Woodstock – 3

The Phoenix hosted sister school rival Woodstock during Fall Family Weekend this past Saturday.  Always a spirited contest, the Phoenix came out very strong and dominated the first half of the game.  Midfielders Cat Vidal ’12 and Rachel de Molina ’11 played aggressively and kept the action at the Woodstock end for most of the period. Bath drew several corner kicks and despite well placed balls from captain Sage Harris ’11, the Phoenix were unable to find the back of the net.  On the first of only two carries to goal, Woodstock was awarded a penalty kick for a charge in the box.  The ball sailed low and left of the keeper making the score 1-0 Woodstock.  Bath countered with several scoring opportunities but the remainder of the half was scoreless.  The Phoenix returned to the field determined to even the score which they did when striker Courtney Durepo ’11 stuffed the ball in the net on a close range shot inside the box.  With the game tied, Woodstock began to find its stride and the momentum clearly swung in their direction.  They scored on two outside shots, one of which was a direct kick, to win the game 3-1.  It was an excellent effort from both teams.

Hyde – 1

Greely – 1

On a blustery Head’s Holiday, the Phoenix took to the turf to face one of the strongest soccer programs in the state.  The team came out firing and took the lead early.  With only 6 minutes gone by, Amy Ginsberg ’13 scored on a strong low shot with an assist from Courtney Durepo ’12.  The remainder of the first half was scoreless despite opportunities for both teams.  Keeper Mali Perry ’11 notched 6 saves, confidently handling all of her shots.  Greely’s fast outside mid-fielders were effectively shut down by Hyde with an outstanding effort by Emilie Rose ’11 who controlled Greely’s top player.  The second half was hard fought with standout performances by Andrea Snyder ’11 in the mid-field and Tandis Rafii ’12 in the back.  With only 15 minutes left to play, Greely broke through the defense and drew a penalty kick, tying the game 1-1.  Hyde worked hard to break it in the final minutes and was spared a loss with an outstanding diving save from second half keeper Laughlynn Bragg ’12.  The game advanced into two five minute golden goal overtimes, but both remained scoreless and it ended in a draw.
