On Monday, Oct. 13, the 7-2 Lady Wrecker soccer players proved their tremendous skills with a tied game as they took on the Wilton Warriors on Loeffler field.

The game consisted of strong defensive and offensive players from both teams, each player showing their tremendous strength by running up and down the field.

Captain Lauren Garcia, ’15, and Brynnly Marsh ’16, were key assets to the success of the game, utilizing their impressive skills to enhance other teammates’ performances and execute a goal with 20 minutes left of the game.

“I think we played really well as a team today and it really showed as we were trying to make good passes and get the goals,” Garcia said.

Addy Fowle, ’15, also showed strong defensive strength as the ball was kicked towards her but then bounced back to the opposing team member. She aggressively sprinted after the ball, successfully maintaining it and settling it back in Staples territory. However, her success wouldn’t be prevalent without her teammates.

“Lauren had a great cross to Brynnly and she headed it in perfectly,” Fowle said. “After we scored in the second half the tempo really was brought up and we started to play with way more intensity.”

The crowd’s energy was something that encouraged the girls as well explained Maggie Walsh, ’15.“After the goal was made, you could tell that defense wanted to hold up and offense wanted to do better. The fans help us push through,” said Walsh.

The girls take on Norwalk on Thursday at 4. With a crowd full of spirit and energy, the Lady Wreckers can prevail once again and hopefully pull out a win for a special senior day.
