Game 1: Northwest Jaguars best B-CC Barons

The formidable Lady Barons soccer team had a tough season opener Tuesday night, falling to the Northwest Jaguars 2-1.

The first half saw both teams trading possession for 25 minutes with no serious scoring threats by either team. The Jaguars started the scoring with a run down the side of the field, followed by a cross into the box and then a crisp shot into the goal with 15 minutes left in the half. Ten minutes later, the Jaguars took advantage of a high ball landing close to the goal, punching it in for a 2-0 lead. Barons’ playmakers Caroline Flibbert and Clare Edelstein both had shots on goal but couldn’t find the net.

The Barons came out fighting in the second half, and within two minutes took a shot on goal, followed by Olivia Siegel earning a corner kick. Sophia Wallach took the kick, lofting it right to Flibbert who headed it over the goal. Overall, the Barons offense was a bigger presence in the second half, with shots by sophomore Emma McMillian, senior Georgia Tinsley, and junior Lili Barrett. At the 18 minute mark of the half, Maya Gutman received a pass from Caroline Ward and found herself open – firing a shot from the 30 that went over the head over the goalie and into the net. The Barons were not able to find the net again, leaving the contest at 2-1 Jaguars.

Newcomers McMillian, Samaya Bernardo, and Jessie Gomez made their varsity debut and contributed to the offense, defense, and midfield respectively. Next up for the Lady Barons: Saturday afternoon at Gaithersburg. Go Barons!
