Junior Becca Olsen collected four goals to help pace the CC Patriots (7-8-1)past the Bedford Buccaneers (4-9-1) 18-6 in Sunday’s makeup game.
After initially allowing two goals to the Buccaneers’ back on May 9th under threatening skies, CC poured on the offense with three goals in the next three minutes of play before the skies opened up resulting in a game postponement.
The Patriots picked up where they left off during Sunday’s makeup game dousing their opponent with eight goals to Bedford’s one.
Goals came fast and wide spread throughout the game from ten CC players including Kate Wyeth (3 goals), Allie Barrett (2 goals), Emma Mahoney (2 goals), Cassidy Hale (2 goals), Catherine Gouchoe (1 goal) Mirande Gaehde (1 goal) and Amelia Johnson (1 goal) and Johann O Neil (1 goal) while Sophomore attack Jenna Carlton led the team with 6 points on 1 goal and 5 assists.
The Patriots continued to show their balanced team approach on both ends of the field as junior Tessa Dibble, senior Lucy Fell, and freshmen Madeline Leahy and Briana Stout all made defensive contributions.
Barrett and O’ Neal supported the midfield play with a combined 7 ground balls. Conley Ernst minded net for the Patriots during the first half of play allowing only 2 goals, while Freshmen goalie Kayla Milofsky provided the same stubborn play in net the second half.
Coach Morrison- that win was much needed for the Patriots. "We are in a win or go home mode right now. If we want to make the playoffs we can't lose another regular season game. I thought Kate Wyeth led us again, and she has really picked up the team down the stretch. Jenna Carlton having 5 assists is a trend that the whole team needs to pick up on to make us more dangerous. It was great to see Miranda Gaehde, Amelia Johnson, Catherine Gouchoe, Tessa Dibble, and Kayla Milofsky make the most of their opportunity out there."
