The Bears traveled south on Wednesday to take on the Milbrook Mustangs. The cool temperatures appeared to have no effect on the Bears as the Bears took control of the game from the start. Bear’s midfielder Eloise Morrow ’14 launched a pass up the left side of the field to forward Emily Walsh ’16, who, with a little fancy footwork and a high hard shot, found the back of the net just 10 minutes into the game. Minutes later, it was Emmi Graebner ’14 who converted a goal after a pass in front of the net by midfielder Kylie Wilkes ’16. The Bears would add one more in the first half, when Erin Dillon ’17 ran onto the ball and maneuvered it skillfully around the Mustang’s keeper. The Bears ended the half with a 3-0 lead.
In the 2nd half, Lauren Henman ’14 tried her hand out on the field as Mia Vantine ’16 took on the responsibilities of netkeeper. The Bears came out strong once again in the second half. Just 2 minutes in, Henman found the back of the net after Wilkes ’16 slotted a pass between 2 Mustang defenders. Henman ’14 wasted little time in her new offensive role -powering another shot past the Mustang goalie only minutes later and earning her 2nd goal of the game. The Bears continued to control the tempo. Andrea Cass ’17 tapped in her first goal of the season after converting a beautiful cross from Graebner ’14. Annie Hubbard ’16 also notched her 1st goal of the season after converting a scramble in front of the net with a shot into the top right side of the net. The Bears closed out the game on top by a score of 7-0.
