CC took on the Reading Rockets in Concord and avenged last year’s loss with a 13-6 victory. Captain Becca Olsen started the scoring 2 minutes into the game as CC carried the play from the start and methodically built a 6-0 lead through the first 20 minutes of play. Reading finally got on the board to make 6-1 with 4 minutes to play in the first half before CC put two more in the net to make it 8-1 at the half. CC combined strong defense, including an interception by goalie Conley Ernst behind her own net, with efficient and balanced offensive possessions leading to 7 different players scoring for CC through the first half.

Reading scored first to start the second half to make it 8-2 before CC’s Allie Barrett and Emma Mahoney scored to make it an 8 goal lead just three minutes in. The teams traded goals for the remainder of the day before the game finished at 13-6. CC’s offense was led by Allie Barrett with 4 goals and Emma Brandhorst with 3. Conley Ernst and Kayla Milofsky combined for the victory in net, and Hannah Dudley and Johanna O’Neil combined for 9 ground ball pick-ups. 

“That was an important win for the team” said Coach Paul Morrison. “To come out and take charge from start to finish against a team that we lost to last year is a good foundation for us to build success on as we go forward in the season.”
