The Academy of the New Church hosted Germantown Friends School for the championship game of the Friends School League last Friday (11/1). With the warmer weather, there were plenty of fans able to support both teams.
The second half proved ANC to be the dominant team, with more possession and more shots on goal than GFS. Finally, about half way through, sophomore midfielder Kyla Rogers was able to -- not once, but twice -- rebound her own shot, and confidently scored into the back board. With GFS down, ANC had to keep possession and stay fearless to keep up their momentum. The Lions were unified and used every player to win this match with a final score of 1 - 0. Junior goal keeper Heather Schauder recorded another shutout for her first championship game.
Seniors Samantha Elsing, Myrta Asplundh, and Cheyanne Asplundh were very proud to win the first back-to-back championship by a girls sport for ANC in the Friends School League. The Lions are moving into the state playoffs with a 6th place ranking, and will be hosting Baldwin School on Thursday (11/7) with a start time of 3:00 pm. Come out and support!
The girls have advanced to the second playoff round, after defeating Baldwin 3-0 in the first round. Way to go!
