The Middlesex High varsity girls soccer team split a pair of matches last week defeating Northampton 1-0 and losing 3-0 to Northumberland.

Against visiting Northampton on March 28, the only score came on a direct kick by Lady Charger Emilie Smith. Smith shot from 35 yards out and the ball bounced off a Northampton player and went into the left side of the goal. 

There were few shots on goal from both teams in a very defensive game with a lot of control from both teams in the midfield. Middlesex keeper Jillian Solomon had 4 saves as goalie.

On March 29, the Lady Chargers faced visiting Northumberland for the third game of the week and second in two days. “We were very tired mentally and physically from the earlier games,” said Lady Charger coach Eric Smith. “We knew Northumberland was going to be the team to beat this year. We played with heart and we fared well under the circumstances.

“Their defensive was very strong and they played the ball well the entire game,” Coach Smith added. “It was a good learning experience for us and we know what we need to fix for the rest of the season.”

The Lady Chargers are at Northampton on Monday, April 9, at 5:30 p.m. On Friday, April 13, the Lady Chargers are at Northumberland for a 6 p.m. match.
