Cam­bridge-South Dorch­ester’s Brooke Wind­sor drives against North Dorch­ester be­fore scor­ing the game’s first goal Wed­nes­day, Sept 13. Wind­sor scored twice in the 4-0 vic­tory.

SHILOH — Cam­bridge-South Dorch­ester’s girls’ soc­cer team de­feated North Dorch­ester 4-0 Wed­nes­day, Sept 13, be­hind two goals from sopho­more Brooke Wind­sor.

Mor­gan Tracy and Emily Bro­hawn each scored a goal, both com­ing on as­sists from Wind­sor. The Vik­ings im­prove to 3-0 on the sea­son.

“Our pass­ing looked great to­day,” said Cam­bridge-SD head coach Ka­reem Otey. “We re­ally moved the ball around great.

“We re­ally had a lot of chances to­day, but it seems to hit ev­ery spot on the post and cross bar,” she added. “The girls did a great job out there. Brooke had an­other out­stand­ing game. She can do it all.”

Wind­sor scored in the fourth minute off a pass from Leila Robin­son. Wind­sor scooted the ball from her left to right foot, then drove a shot in­side the left post for a 1-0 lead.

In the 13th minute, Wind­sor drove a pass down the mid­dle to a streak­ing Tracy who split the de­fense and scored for a 2-0 lead.

The Ea­gles looked get on the board a few min­utes later when Des­tiny Lane found Kalifa War­ren in the mid­dle of the field. War­ren then sailed a pass to Ste­fani Lana­han who fired a shot, but Vik­ing goal­keeper Sab­rina McKelvey made the save.

In the 21st minute, Lana­han cre­ated an­other chance with a pass to Kyla Diggs, but Diggs’ shot was blocked by CSD de­fender Ha­ley Wright. Lana­han gath­ered the loose ball and shot, but Wright blocked the shot.

A long drive by Wind­sor in the 39th minute crossed the mid­dle and found the foot of Bro­hawn along the left side. Bro­hawn gath­ered the pass and shot into the back of the net for a 3-0 lead.

“We have a young team but ev­ery­one is re­ally gelling to­gether,” Otey said. “We had an en­tire month prac­tic­ing to­gether, and it re­ally helped us a lot. That helped build the chem­istry.”

In the sec­ond half, the Vik­ings had sev­eral chances de­nied by shots go­ing off the posts, and by the play of North Dorch­ester goalie Ni­cole Waples who made 14 saves on the day. Waples used to speed to re­trieve long passes in the goal box. Twice, Waples leap to stop a high shot.

Late in the match, Wind­sor found some open space and scored her sec­ond goal to give the Vik­ings a 4-0 lead.

The Ea­gles dropped to 0-3 but head coach Genna Hat­field is pleased with her teams progress.

“The team has a lot of new faces this year since we grad­u­ated a bunch, but the girls have been play­ing hard and have been get­ting bet­ter each game, each prac­tice,” she said. “They are work­ing to­gether as a team, and com­mu­ni­cat­ing out there. They are grow­ing each day.”
