In the win over Kennedy, Emily Grahl and Olivia Haddox were credited with the goals. Grahl also earned an assist along with Janie Arand.
“On the first goal, Janie Arand held off a couple defenders while playing a beautifully weighted pass between defenders,” said Borgia Head Coach Grant Kang. “Emily Grahl received the ball facing the goalie, and made an accurate shot that beat the keeper. The second goal had Emily Grahl putting a pass across the six yard box, and Olivia Haddox finished it with a perfect strike to beat the keeper.”
Both goals came in the second half.
Emily Sisco made eight saves in goal to earn the shutout.
“Emily Sisco came up with some big saves, and out defenders were pressed hard by a very fast Kennedy team,” Kang said. “Importantly, every player on our roster played when we had something to win and something to lose. This experience should help us down the road when any player might be called upon to step into a pressure situation.”
Kayla Swanson made 10 saves for Kennedy.
In the loss to Rosati-Kain, Allie Wilson scored Borgia’s goal in the second half. Molly Arand assisted.
