The Lady Warriors started their season tonight with an attacking game that didn’t let up. In the first half the Warriors used their hard passes to get by the Magruder defense into open space where the mid fielders took turns taking hard shots into the shooting circle. With 13 minutes left on the clock in the first half, Capt. Tarrah Welch sent a line drive from outside the shooting circle to right forward Caitlin Ruane who was waiting at the right post for a deflection into goal. Seasoned player Carly Sefcik followed it up with a well executed flick into goal from the top of the shooting circle to make the score 2-0. In the 2nd half Magruder regrouped and began forcing the Warrior defense on their heels. The Lady Warriors adjusted by changing the tempo of the game and began connecting their passes to create their opportunities to attack the goal. This led to 2 more goals by Lizzie Hermosilla and Lauren Turner. Magruder continued to turn up their attacking game and the Sherwood defense was able to hold them off. Great defensive play was demonstrated by Capt Ella Joliet, Rose Gottschalk and Megan Carmody forcing the Magruder attackers to lose the ball for turn overs. The night ended with a shot from the top of the shooting circle by Lizzy Hermosilla for a goal. Congratulations Warriors!
