The Deerfield Girls Varsity Soccer team hosted a talented Milton team on a beautiful Saturday fall afternoon, their first home game since the fall of 2019. After a tough 3-0 defeat on Wednesday, the girls came into Saturday’s game with something to prove and it showed from the first whistle.
Solid team defense was on display throughout the game which generated a couple of excellent opportunities for DA to find a goal in transition only to be denied by some excellent saves by the Milton keeper. With the score tied at 0-0 and less than two minutes to play, ninth grade goalie Ellie Schiller ’24 made two incredible saves to keep the visitors off the score sheet. At the end of the 80 minutes the teams remained tied at zero. It was an entertaining afternoon of soccer and both teams put on a great performance!
