Apr 27 – JV Girls LAX results

The JV Girls Lax team beat Miramonte last night 15 – 3, to continue their undefeated-in-league-play streak. League record: 8 wins, 0 losses. Highlights: An even wider range of players earned hard stats: 13 in all, (in the Campo game on Tuesday, 10 different players earned hard stats), including another new player to score her first goal of the season – #31 Sophie LoughranSmith. #53 Melanie Toth had an especially quick-thinking goal after picking up a saved-by-Miramonte’s-goalie penalty shot that bounced back onto the field. The team had a very high number of assists this game: 7 + 1 feed (not an official assist because goal-maker took too many steps before shooting), whereas they’ve been averaging only 2 assists per game. This shows further development in working as a team, under Coach Emily Hook’s guidance. Other stats makers were: #15 Ellie Higgins‘ 4 goals + 2 assists, #4 Caith Wright’s 2 goals + 3 assists, #39 MacKenna Mullins‘ 1 goal + 1 assist, #35 Allison Roullier’s 1 goal + 1 assist, #18 McKenna Koepke’s 1 goal, #29 Holly Fleischmann’s 1 goal, #33 Piper Keeley’s 1 goal, #46 Elena Fromer’s 1 goal, #47 Kate Anderson’s 1 goal, first half Goalie Kate Hansen’s 5 saves (including 3 against penalty shots), for a 71% success rate, and second half Goalie Mollie Nelsen’s 4 saves, for an 80% success rate.

Next game: Tues., 5/1/12 Alhambra @ home. 5:30 game start.

APR 25 – JV Girls LAX Results

The JV Girls Lax team beat Campolindo at home last night 13 – 5, to continue their undefeated-in-league-play streak.  League record:  7 wins, 0 losses.  Highlights:  The entire team shows steady improvement, and is gelling as a team, under the leadership of 1st year (to AHS) coach Emily Hook.  9 different players scored goals/assists, including 3 players who scored their first goals of the season:  #18  McKenna Koepke’s 2 goals, #35 Allison Roullier’s 1 goal, and #41 Mollie Nelsen’s 1 goal, (who’s usually our goalie).  #48 Kate Hansen was in goal first half, with a stellar first time performance:  5 goalie saves, (including 3 against penalty/free shots), for an 83% success rate.  Other stats makers were:  #15 Ellie Higgins‘ 5 goals, #4 Caith Wright’s 2 goals, #39 MacKenna Mullins‘ 1 goal, #45 Blake Balfrey’s 1 goal, #47 Kate Anderson’s 1 assist, #10 Bella Gotts‘ 1 assist, and second half Goalie Mollie Nelsen’s 1 save. The JV offense continued to dominate on draw controls, and #45 Blake Balfrey spiked up in causing a change of possession back to AHS, by winning ground balls.
