|Score:||Berkshire 6 - Canterbury 1|
Berkshire traveled to Canterbury on Saturday to take on the Saints. It finally felt like a fall day in New England, and with the brisk air came a slow start to the game for both teams. Berkshire soon got into their groove though, and about eleven minutes into the first half, Erin Dillon ’17 perfectly placed a penalty kick into the corner of the net. Not wasting any time, the Bears tallied another a minute later, again with a goal by Dillon, craftily assisted by Moet Matsuoka ’17. With time winding down in the first half, the Bears continued to push toward the Canterbury net. The persistence paid off for Sarah Rogers ’14 who followed her own shot to put in a rebounded ball and give Berkshire the 3-0 lead. Not to be outdone, the Saints snuck one in before the half was over, closing the gap to two goals.
The Bears came out in the second half with a 3-1 lead but still hungry for goals. Mia Vantine ’16 replaced Lauren Henman ’14 in goal, and Henman made an immediate impact on the field when she made a nice though pass to Emmi Graebner ’14 for an assist and a first goal of the season for Graebner. Madison Heilshorn ’16 also recorded her first goal of the year on a beautifully placed penalty kick after a Canterbury handball in the box. Henman continued to play well and rocketed a shot in for Berkshire’s sixth goal of the game. The final score was 6-1 Berkshire.
Berkshire travels to Millbrook on Wednesday for a 2:30 game.
