Varsity Doubled Up in Road Loss

Varsity Doubled Up in Road Loss

Harvey’s girls varsity soccer team scored a season-high three goals, but it wasn’t enough in a 6-3 loss to The Williams School on the road Thursday, Oct. 7, in New London, Connecticut.

The first half was all Williams as the hosts scored four unanswered goals and led 4-0 at halftime. Harvey goalie Ash Champlain not only had to spend the first half battling the Williams offensive push but also the blinding glare from a low sun.

The second half was a different story as Harvey outscored Williams 3-2 with junior Juliet Jaques leading the way on offense for the Cavaliers. Juliet scored Harvey’s first goal at the 44th minute and picked up her second score later at the 63-minute mark. In between Juliet’s goals, ninth grader Lila Leibowits collected a goal in the game’s 50th minute. Harvey would have had a fourth goal, but it was negated by a contested penalty.

Ash finished with an impressive 18 saves. Several other Cavs made important contributions. Sophomore Grace Alpern stepped up to mark a Williams player head-to-head, helping to shut down a number of breakaways. Senior Sofia Munoz, playing as stopper for the first time, got a number of key touches that played in Harvey’s favor. Junior sweeper Liz Hurley blocked several attempts on goal. Sophomore Lucia Menn provided control up and down the line and kept the offensive plays moving while sophomore Nora Jobe returned from a recent injury to play a strong defensive game and provide an extra body.

Despite the loss, Harvey coach Sarah Zeigler was pleased with the way her team performed. “The Cavaliers played with heart,” said Coach Zeigler. ”The other team and their coach commented on the level of sportsmanship displayed by Harvey,” Coach Zeigler added.

Harvey at 0-3-0 hopes to get into the win column when the Cavs go up against Watkinson in Hartford, Connecticut, Wednesday, Oct. 20.
