MHS girls soccer team improves to 11-2-1

The Middlesex Lady Chargers soccer team improved to 11-2-1 after defeating Lancaster and West Point in recent action.

Middlesex dominated host Lancaster 8-0 on May 9. Emilie Smith scored 5 goals in the first half. The Middlesex defense was strong and sent great balls up front to the forwards to start the attacks, said Coach Eric Smith. 

In the second half Coach Smith moved people to different places and the game ended under the mercy rule with 14 minutes left. 

Also scoring a goal and 2 assists for Middlesex was Payton St. Louis. Cameron Ward scored and had an assist. Desiree Bagby had a goal. Brooke Daniel, Stacy Brandenberg and Lily Maydole each had an assist. 

Middlesex prevailed 3-2 against visiting West Point on May 14 during Middlesex’s Senior Night. Early in the first half West Point received a direct kick just outside the Middlesex box and a Lady Pointer delivered a goal in the upper right corner of the net. 

Soon after, Emilie Smith tied up the game with a shot over the keeper. Just before halftime, Emilie Smith made a one-touch pass to an open Lily Maydole who made a low shot to the left corner of the net for a 2-1 Middlesex lead.

“It took everyone on the field and bench to compete at this level,” said Coach Eric Smith. “Our subs were playing great and we needed to take advantage of situations that presented themselves to us.” 

Both teams were very aggressive and Middlesex went up 3-1 with a direct shot by Emilie Smith from 25 yards out. 

“My team was battling the heat and getting fatigued but we knew we could hold them off,” said Coach Smith.

West Point grabbed its second goal with a long ball to the back post. The Lady Charger keeper blocked it down but a Lady Pointer touched the rebound back into the goal. 

The last 7 minutes was a constant battle,

The Middlesex offense was controlled by great play from Emilie Smith and Lily Maydole. Midfield was controlled by Haley Revere and Payton St. Louis. 

The MHS defense was dominant with the back four of Faith Ketner, Taylor Witcher, Sarah Blake, and Desiree Bagby.
