Our first game! Nine new players! Double-header with WPI and UMass, playing 30-minute halves.
Sunny and warm with fans from far away! Rose's dad from Utah, Allison's mom from Colorado and her aunt, Hannah's family and adorable puppy Gus!
WPI is a new team this year, so we didn't know quite what to expect.
We wasted no time scoring goals! Rose's shot in the 3rd minute was saved but Sophie put in the rebound, and -- after Christyn's first shot went over -- Mari set up Christyn's goal in the 6th minute.
After WPI had a free kick and a corner, we had two corner kicks, followed by two shots by WPI saved by Hannah. Mel's shot in the 19th minute went wide but her goal in the 26th minute hit the upper right corner sweetly!
Only two minutes later Haley got on the score sheet!
At half time we spoke about making more diagonal passes and runs. Rose got us a goal in only 3 minutes! Then Allison from Caroline a minute later! Caroline almost scored right after that.
Maria, who just transferred to Dartmouth from Georgetown, scored twice in the span of about a minute, bringing us to 8 goals!
Julia D saved a shot from WPI in the last minute of play.
