The EG Girls Soccer team had a strong showing Friday night at home, beating Middletown 4-0. EG got just one goal off Middletown during the first half but scored three goals in the second half. Sophomore Abby Lewis scored three of EG’s four goals.
“Middletown put up a really good fight in the first half, but it felt great to connect on all cylinders in the second half, offensively and defensively,” said Coach Karen Lockhart.
Lockhart said the team has been focusing on “communication on defense and finding ways to be productive in the attacking third.”
She added, “I was also excited to see Abby Lewis score her first hat trick.”
Ava Simpson, a sophomore, scored the second goal – “a bullet from 30 yards out,” said Lockhart. Assists came from Grace Birkett, Izzy Gelzhiser, and Sydney Mendes.
