As usual, Gilford started fast, as Nicole Berube assisted Jill Lachapelle two minutes into the game. Two minutes later Kellie Ryan found Laurel Gingrich, to go ahead 2-0. Four minutes later Berube scored, three minutes after that Berube assisted Gingrich, for her second goal of the game. 60 seconds later Berube picked up her third assist of the match, as Kellie Ryan netted her 50th career goal. Ryan scored as she did a reverse chip shot, as she put it just to the left of the goalkeeper. She could not have scored in a more perfect way, doing it at her homecoming, in her senior year. Maybe doing it in the State Championship as the game-winning goal, but she already checked that off last season. The goal was not overly exaggerated, as Ryan picked up the ball and ran it back to the 50. Even though the milestone is great for Ryan and deserves a big congratulations, she was way more concerned that the goal helped cushion Gilford's lead, and wants to move on to the next game, to make sure she gets back to the State Championship, so she has a chance to repeat before she exits Gilford Field Hockey.
To wrap up the first half scoring, Cloe Boucher found Ella Harris, as she scored her first varsity goal.
Four minutes into the second half, Berube found Bri Salanitro, to go ahead 7-0. 60 seconds later Berube connected again with Ryan, as she wrapped up the scoring, and finishing off the game, 8-0.
A big congratulations to Kellie Ryan for scoring her 50th career goal, congrats Kellie!
