Waldorf's Varsity Soccer Team traveled to Brooklyn, N.Y. to face the Berkeley Carroll School for their first road game of the season and the long bus ride took a toll. Despite a hard fought and even game, the ladies fell 01-03. The team is now 1-1 on the young season.
Berkeley Carroll struck first in the twelfth minute, but Waldorf answered two and half minutes later on an unassisted goal by eighth-grader Conchetta Bohm. Sophomore goalkeeper Marie Golebiewski kept the game close with six first half saves.
Waldorf found itself facing the second half without junior midfielder Mikayla Ver Pault who had to exit the game midway through the first half with an injury to the hip.
From the start of the second half whistle, Waldorf pressed Berkeley Carroll. The combination of senior forwards Sofia Trikas and Marianna Paone peppered the Berkeley Carroll goalkeeper with eight second-half shots and four corner kids, but Waldorf simply could not get the equalizer. Berkeley Carroll then took advantage of a late corner kick, scoring with 30 seconds remaining to put the game away.
"The team learned a valuable lesson about how hard it is to play on the road," commented head coach Kim Wyant, "and I was really pleased with the effort and attitude shown by all players."
