Game Recap

BCC Barons v. Walter Johnson Wildcats
October 10, 2017, Scheduled 7:15 p.m. kickoff, Actual Kickoff Much Later
Final Score: BCC 3, Churchill 0

Less than a week after beating the Winston Churchill High School Bulldogs in a close game that started scoreless in the first half but finished with the BCC Barons 2017 Girls Soccer team ahead 2 goals to none, BCC faced another top cross-town competitor, the Walter Johnson High School Wildcats. On the night that the Barons had selected as their “Senior Night,” the Seniors arrived at the game in style when they emerged from a Hummer limousine large enough to fit all 14 of the Barons’ Senior players. Like the previous three teams that BCC had played (Einstein, Wheaton, and Churchill), the Wildcats were trying to knock the Barons out of their 1st place ranking in The Washington Post’s AllMet rankings for Girls soccer – a position the Barons have held since September 26, 2017. Although the Wildcats had lost to Whitman by a score of 3-1 the week before, they also had limited the Churchill Bulldogs to a single score in the Wildcats 1-0 loss to the Bulldogs on October 2nd. The game saw the return to the field of all of the Barons’ Varsity players except Junior Defender Colleen Riley (#23), who remained sidelined due to injury.

Along with an overtime period in the JV game, the Senior Night festivities pushed the kickoff much later than originally scheduled, and by the time the Seniors and their parents cleared the field, the Barons only had minutes to re-focus on the game and warmup. The game began with the Barons kicking the ball back to Senior Caroline Ward (#19), who passed to Senior Alex Fine (#25), who cleared the ball to the Wildcat defensive half and then out of bounds. Both Ward and Fine have been sidelined for the season due to pre-season injuries, and the kickoff presented an opportunity to earn some game time on the field with their fellow Seniors. Senior Sally Egan (#99) started in goal, and it did not take long for Egan to show her defensive prowess when she made key saves at the 4th, 7th, and 11th minutes, among others, and also denied the Wildcats several other scoring opportunities by charging out to smother loose balls.

Like the Barons’ game against Churchill, the first half of play saw the Barons and the Wildcats pressuring each other’s defensive backline with long kicks up the sidelines and across the field. Senior Captains Avery Butterfield (#8) and Sophia Wallach (#17) and Sophomore Bea Houston (#7) fed the midfielders, including Senior Captain Morgane Dallaire (#22), Senior Maya Gutman (#24), and Sophomore Jessie Gomez (#5), and forwards, including Senior Captain Lili Barrett (#21), Seniors Julia Wilson (#11), Lilly Craver (#12), and Claire Edelstein (#13), and Juniors Shelby Fountain (#1) and Sarah Haas (#15) with overhead passes and precision through passes, but the Wildcats’ defense held strong. Outstanding defensive plays in the first half also were turned in by Junior Ardyn Kesterman (#18), Sophomores Greta Farkas (#4), Lane Lieberman (#10), Samaya Bernardo (#6), and Amelia Rehrig (#2), and Freshman Kelsea Petersen (#14). Like the Churchill game, the score at halftime was 0-0.

The first 10 minutes of the second half saw the Barons and Wildcats continuing to pressure each other’s defense with Edelstein, Barrett, Gomez, and Gutman keeping the ball on the Wildcats’ defensive half of the field for the first two minutes, Wallach sending a corner kick off of the Wildcat goalie’s hands that Wilson sent over the crossbar at the 45th minute, and Senior Carli Boyer (#0) making key saves on a Wildcat free kick and subsequent corner kick in the 48th minute. The Barons’ persistent pressure finally paid off in the 51st minute when Wallach sent another corner kick into the goal box that went off of a Wildcat head and landed at the feet of Gomez on the far side of the post. Gomez immediately popped the ball back towards the goal only to have it deflected off a Wildcat head towards the top of the box and land at Wilson’s feet where Wilson immediately smashed the ball off of a defender or two and into the net to make the score Barons 1, Wildcats 0.

The next 10 minutes saw BCC shots at goal by Haas on a breakaway at the 55th minute that the Wildcat goalie collected, Gomez a minute later that the goalie saved, and a long pass by Farkas to Craver that was sent wide of the goal at the 61st minute. In the 62nd minute, however, Farkas found Fountain who fed the ball to Haas for the Barons’ second goal, Barons 2, Wildcats 0. As the game entered the final 10 minutes of play, the Barons’ defense continued to hold strong, and in the 71st minute, Wallach sent a high kick from the left sideline into the middle of the box where Senior Natalie Labinger (#20) headed the ball over the goalie and into the net for the Barons’ third goal. Barons 3, Wildcats 0.

The Barons defense finished the game strong with solid defensive performances by Senior Kat Albus (#3), Edelstein, Kesterman, and Bernardo in the waning minutes. Final Score BCC 3, Wildcats 0.

Game Recap

BCC Barons v. Churchill Bulldogs
October 4, 2017, Scheduled 7:15 p.m. kickoff, Actual Kickoff 7:20 p.m.
Final Score: BCC 2, Churchill 0

Just two days after beating the Wheaton Knights by a score of 7-0, the BCC Barons 2017 Girls’ Soccer Team traveled to Potomac to face the Winston Churchill High School Bulldogs. BCC had just claimed its 7th win of the season with no defeats and was ranked 1st in The Washington Post’s AllMet rankings for Girls soccer. The Bulldogs entered the game ranked 4th in the AllMet with 6 wins and one loss (by a score of 2-1) to Thomas Wooton High School. Fortunately for the Barons, key players Captain Avery Butterfield (#8), Junior Sarah Haas (#15), and Sophomore Samaya Bernardo (#6) returned to the lineup after recovering from illness and injury, but Junior Defender Colleen Riley (#23), who was critical in the middle on defense against Wheaton, was sidelined due to injury.
The first half of play saw both the Barons and the Bulldogs pressuring each other’s defensive backline with long kicks up the sidelines and across the field. The Barons defense, led again by Senior Goalkeeper Carli Boyer (#0), held strong with Junior Bernardo stuffing two Bulldog attacks in the opening minutes and Senior Captains Butterfield, Morgane Dallaire (#22), Sophia Wallach (#17) and Senior Kat Albus (#3) clearing long balls to midfield and feeding Senior Captain Lili Barrett (#21), Seniors Clare Edelstein (#13), Julia Wilson (#11), and Lilly Craver (#12), and Junior Sarah Haas (#15) with through balls and overhead looping passes that led to several scoring opportunities but no goals. The scoring opportunities included one in the 16th minute when after several crisp passes, the ball end up at Edelstein’s feet in the box, but the Bulldogs’ goalie snagged Edelstein’s line drive shot. In the 18th minute, the Barons again had a scoring opportunity when they received a free kick just outside the Churchill goalie box because a Churchill defender held Edelstein, preventing her from tracking down an overhead pass from Wallach that would have left Edelstein one-on-one with the Churchill keeper. The Churchill wall was able to block the free kick out over the end line, and on the ensuing Baron’s corner kick, Wallach crossed the ball to Wilson on the far side of the goal, but Wilson’s shot was blocked by what appeared to be a Churchill handball that was not called. The remainder of the first half saw another free kick for the Barons, this time for a Churchill handball that was called approximately 10 meters outside the Churchill goal box, but Senior Maya Gutman’s (#24) shot just missed the goal. Despite the scoring opportunities, neither team was able to notch a goal in the first half, and the BCC cheering section, which appeared to be both larger and louder than Churchill’s, was left nervously wondering what it would take to break the deadlock.
The second half started with the Bulldogs pressuring the Barons’ defense for the first three minutes, and the Barons looking a little cold, but by the 50th minute, the Barons had warmed back up and were dominating with ball possession, long kicks towards the Bulldogs’ goal, and controlling the middle. At the 51st minute, the Barons were awarded a free kick from approximately 40 meters out that Wallach put into the goal box but a Churchill player headed over the end line for a Barons corner kick. On the corner kick, Wallach sent the ball in the air towards the goal box, where it landed between the Bulldogs’ defenders and bounced into the net for the first goal of the game – score BCC 1, Churchill 0. Just two minutes later, the Barons scored their second goal when Gutman passed the ball to Barrett, who dribbled past a Churchill defender and then drilled the ball into the top, left corner of the goal to make the score BCC 2, Churchill 0. The remainder of the game included additional BCC pressure from Haas, Barrett, Craver, Edelstein, Junior Shelby Fountain (#1), and Sophomores Jessie Gomez (#5), Amelia Rehrig (#2), Greta Farkas (#4), and Lane Lieberman (#10), and rock solid defense from Butterfield, Albus, Wallach, Sophomore Bea Houston (#7), and Freshman Kelsea Petersen (#14), but no goals from either team. Final score BCC 2, Churchill 0!
