BERLIN 1, WHITE MOUNTAINS 0, OT: Emily Roy scored on a two-on-one breakaway 70 seconds into the 7-on-7 overtime period to lift the Mountaineers.
“Savannah Stone played really well off the bench as a defender,” said WM coach Jeannine LaBounty. Alyssa Mendez had two big saves. Liv Scalley transitioned the ball well. Adri continues to be a strong defender. Abbie McCusker adjusted to a new spot on the field and made a huge difference at the mid position.
“And Jen [Fowler], she’s just so good in the goalie position. On her toes, commanding her circle. Berlin took 26 shots with five missing wide, so Jen saved 20/21 shots at goal. To have a keeper go 95% is pretty impressive especially given the forward attack of Berlin.
“I’m proud of my kids and the way they take the field and keep fighting.”
