BRISTOL - The Bristol Eastern girls soccer team led at halftime, but a pair of second half goals by Julia Sisti won Friday afternoon’s game for Berlin, 2-1.
“Berlin created extensively more chances.” Lancers coach Scott Redman said. “Eastern had a chance to tie it with three minutes left, but could not get on the back end of a cross as the ball glided through the box.”
In the 15th minute, Bristol Eastern’s Myah Croze scoresd off a cross from Sara Tyminski, with the play set up by Kailey Laprise, who played the ball to Tyminski.
In the 45th minute, Sisti dribbled by three Lancers defenders to score the equalizer, then a minute later she did the exact same thing to net the go-ahead goal.
Goalkeeper Lindsay Walsh made two saves for Berlin (4-1), while Karly Martin stopped nine shots for Bristol Eastern (1-3).
Middletown 6, Bristol Central 3: While the Rams lost by three goals at home, coach Ginny Godbout noted that, “The score does not accurately reflect the game played.”
Bristol Central had early looks and scored first, as Adalia Malick put in a nice shot from the corner. She also finished a beautiful ball from Faith Roy, who played a great game on defense as well. Malick added an assist as well for a goal from Ashley Macdonald, who also played a solid game, Godbout said.
“Unfortunately, BC had a difficult time keeping up with Middletown at times and although Aubrey Kelley had 11 saves, it wasn’t enough to stop them,” she said.
