Deerfield faced cross-town rival Frontier on a beautiful balmy fall afternoon. The field was fast and allowed fast competitive game. Deerfield moved the ball down to the attacking end quickly and strong play from Willow Woodward ’22, Camille Glatt ’21 and Sophia Hamlen ’22 created a flurry of shots. The Frontier defense held tough, however; their goalkeeper came up with some key saves to keep Deerfield scoreless until 5:30 in the half when Bri Felice ’21 sent a beautiful pass through the defense into Kailey Smith ’22 who broke free and blasted a shot into the back of the net.
The second half saw some wonderful passing from Sara Ito-Bagshaw ’22, Kate Stenger ’22, Kaitlyn Kelly 22 and Lisa Ito-Bagshaw ’21. Camille Glatt scored off a pass from Sara Ito-Bagshaw just four minutes into the half. Just over 6 minutes later at 17:52, Kate Stenger scored her first goal of the season with Kaitlyn Kelly notching the assist. Sara Ito-Bagshaw ’22 rounded out the scoring with an unassisted goal with 5:00 minutes left in the game.
The Big Green will meet Frontier again this Friday for Family Weekend at home.
