Kellie Ryan scored the game winning goal in last season's State Championship, and she has no signs of slowing down. Ryan scored her first goal 40 seconds into the game, with a beautiful reverse chip shot into the bottom right corner. Ten minutes later she would return the favor to Nicole Berube, who assisted on Ryan's first goal, as Berube put one away. Ryan would score her second with 15 minutes to go in the game, assisted by Bri Salanitro. Salanitro also picked up a goal, unassisted. Gilford had three other players score, Cloe Boucher, Laurel Gingrich, and Sydni Lehr. Gingrich, Emily O'Connor, and Laurel Normandin each picked up an assist on the afternoon.
Scott lifts Stevens past Kearsarge
Senior Captain, Elyse Scott netted a hat trick and an assist, as Stevens beat Kearsarge 4-0. Scott impressed last night, not only with her goals and assist, but her ability to move the ball up the field quickly, she is fast, strong, and is, of course, an offensive threat. Sophie Foote scored the other goal, and goalie Tess Whitney picked up three saves on the night.
Although Kearsarge was outplayed most of the evening, they did have a shining gem amongst their team, back-up goalie Marissa Pickman. She came on at halftime allowing one goal, which was by a stroke, and making 17 saves on the night.
