for our op­po­nent. vou can­not let them turn, can­not let them win the ball out of the air, and you have to pres­sure fiUsW, sHFRnG RU WK­LUG EDOOs. We did that today.”

The Hat­ters out-shot the aistrict 11 school 16-0. An­other ob­jec­tive was to win both halves and they ac­com­plished that with two goals be­fore and after the break. It was se­nior Tory Ad­lam who FORsHG WKH fiUsW KDOI wLWK D goal in the 29th minute and opened the sec­ond half scor­ing in the 49th minute with her sec­ond goal of the night.

“We joke around about Tory’s sig­na­ture chop,” Lam­plugh said. “She did four of them against one de­fender tonight. Some­times Tory needs a buildup, but when she is hun­gry there is not much that is go­ing to stop her.”

Ad­lam used the pass­ing of her long­time team­mates Mary Kate Bate­man and oam­sey Mc­Me­namin to con­tin­u­ally cre­ate chances. Her team­mates since youth league days found Ad­lam’s IHHW DnG wLWK D TuLFN fiUsW step, the for­ward fought off de­fend­ers with reg­u­lar­ity.

“We have a lot of chemisWUy Rn DnG RII WKH fiHOG,” AGlam said. “They are my best friends. In mid­dle school we had two years where went un­de­feated. M. K., oam­sey and I also play club to­gether too, so wH GHfinLWHOy KDYH D ORW RI RS- por­tu­ni­ties to play to­gether.”

Mc­Me­namin’s goal in the 20th minute started the scor­ing and it was Melina Larouche’s nifty an­gle at­tempt in the 78th minute that capped off the con­test. The Hat­ters (4-3-2, 3-2-2) know they will need more of th­ese ef­forts if they want to es­cape the dan­ger­ous Subur­ban One Con­ti­nen­tal Con­fer­ence with enough wins to ap­pear in the aistrict One play­offs.

“We took Eas­ton as any other league game and went hard,” Ad­lam said. “Our league is weird right now be­cause you can­not take any­one lightly. Even the bot­tom team can beat the num­ber one team. We have to take it one game at a time.”
