The Lady Warriors added to their win column yesterday as they defeated Wheaton 5-0. The Warriors were able to utilize the long passes to stretch Wheaton’s defense on their new fast turf field. This created the gaps in their defense that allowed forwards Lauren Turner and Capt Tarrah Welch to score in the first half. Great supporting play was demonstrated by mids Lauren Frank, Emily Kelley and Lauren Turner as they hustled to stop any forward advancement from Wheaton’s attack. In the second half, Sherwood slowed the pace by working the ball around with their passing game. Defenders Rose Gottschalk, Megan Carmody and Arya Sharma held the Wheaton attack from crossing the 50 yard line. Wheaton played a defensive game as multiple shots from Sherwood barely missed their mark. Eventually forward Carly Sefcik was able to score twice and Caitlin Ruane was able to collect a rebound of the Wheaton goalie’s pads for a quick flick into goal for the 5th goal. Congratulations JV.
