CC took advantage of their speed, strength and more finely tuned stickwork trouncing Bedford Wednesday 14-1.
The Patriots controlled the game from the outset, as freshmen Hannah Dudley wonthe draw control, ran the field and placed a well aimed shot to the top corner. CC never looked back. Scoring came fast, frequently and by many as Emma Mahoney (3 goals, 1 assist) & Becca Olsen(3 goals led the Patriots while Lexi Goodhue, Hannah Dudley & Jenna Carlton all contributed as well. The Patriots worked methodically running plays around the 12 and 8 meter before dumping feeds into big spaces and making accurate shots on goal. Meanwhile the Buccaneers struggled having difficulty winning draw controls or taking advantage of any possible ground balls turn overs. At the half CC lead 12-0.
The Patriots eased back for much of the second half but still maintained offensive pressure and ball control on their opponent. While CC’s defense of Johannah O’ Neil (3 ground balls, 1 caused turnover) Lucy Fell, Halle Burns, Madeline Leahy and Brianna Stout negated any scoring opportunities by Bedford, the Patriot offense added goals by sophomores Lexi Goodhue and Catherine Gouchoe.
Coach Morrison utilzied his entire bench and continured to have his team work plays and stall to eat up the clock as time ran down.
"It was a solid game for the team today" said coach Paul Morrison "The starters took control of the game from the onset. Our reserves got plenty of playing time. It was nice to see Catherine Gouchoe (2 goals) and Mirada Gaehede both score their first varsity goals."
