On a picturesque fall day Deerfield hosted Loomis Chaffee on Family Weekend. Loomis came out hard attacking both flanks with speed. The Deerfield team stood strong with a great defensive efforts by back Felicia Renelus ’17 and goalkeeper Valerie Hetherington ’19. At he half the score was 0-0. To start the second half, the Big Green continued to frustrate the Pelicans as they stifled their offensive opportunities while creating offensive opportunities of their own. Loomis opened the scoring when they squeaked a goal past DA in the 56th minute of play. Deerfield kept threatening in the attacking third, but could not put one away. Loomis capitalized on two more opportunities making the score 0-3. The team and coaches were very proud of the team’s effort, cohesion, and quality of soccer. We look to build on this performance.
