B-CC girls varsity soccer team defeats Sherwood High School 4-0
 
On Tuesday, October 6th, the B-CC girls varsity soccer team returned home after a hard-fought victory 3 days earlier against Wootton to play against the Sherwood Warriors. As it turned out, you might call it the “one-touch-scoring” game. For roughly the first eleven minutes of the twilight match, however, B-CC had difficulty mounting a sustained offense. It was as if they had to find the “reset button” after their bruising match against Wootton, but eventually they found the button and pressed it repeatedly to launch dazzling drives by Levin, Doll, Gersh, Manson, Ward, Emden, Hucek, and Thorpe. At the 21-minute mark, Khanna sent a long cross to Hucek who parried it to Doll who, in turn, one-touched it into the goal. On a corner by Mesirow shortly later, Genova steered the ball to Manson who one-touched it into the net as well. The third goal came in the sixty-fourth minute when B-CC earned a free kick just outside the penalty area near the Warriors’ goal line. Levin sent the ball over a Sherwood wall to the far post where Doll – you guessed it . . . another one-touch – headed into the net. And then with 9 minutes remaining, Manson took a pass from Hucek and drove it into the box before crossing it to Kinsey Hoffman who delivered a brilliant one-touch into the net. Before the match ended, however, B-CC narrowly missed scoring yet again when midfielder Rebecca Wenker sent a lovely cross to Alex Emden who – what else – one-touched it just outside the goal post. A solid B-CC defense was mounted by Genova, MacRostie, Levin, Mesirow, Heaton, and Klontz, while goalies Konownitzine, White, and Jaffe combined to make 5 saves, a spectacular one coming late in the game by Jaffe who prevented a determined, onrushing Warrior from spoiling the shutout. In all, B-CC fired 12 shots, 8 shots-on-goal, and took 3 corners. Sherwood, for their part, took 8 shots and had 4 shots-on-goal.
