Middlesex scored two second-half goals last Friday to beat Northumberland, 2-0, in varsity girls soccer.
The Lady Indians took 12 shots on goal with sophomore forward Tahi Wiggins and freshman forward Alice Sisson taking four shots each.
Sophomore Annie Newsome led the defenders, while sophomore Alex English and junior Shannon Baker anchored the midfield.
“We are a young team and learning to play as a team,” said coach Mark Fridenstine.
The Lady Indians have only two seniors, five juniors, five sophomores and three freshmen on the varsity team.
Leading the forwards are senior Tiffany White, junior Hannah Loving, freshman Alice Sisson and Wiggins.
Fridenstine’s midfield includes senior Elana Wilson, juniors Lauren Suchan, Shannon Chapman, Hannah Allison and Baker, sophomores Addie Swisher and English and freshman McKensey Smithart.
The defense includes junior Shelby Sprague, sophomores Erin Burgess and Newsome and freshman Grace Emminizer. Swisher and Burgess are goalkeepers.
On Monday night, the Lady Indians scored three goals in the first half and withstood a late Caroline High School attack to win, 3-2. Suchan, Loving and Wiggins scored for the Northumberland.
The Lady Cavaliers banged two shots off the posts and couldn’t cash in on a late penalty kick after a Northumberland handball in the box. Northumberland’s backline, anchored by Sprague, Newsome and Emminizer were resilient in their defense late in the match.
The Lady Indians open Northern Neck District play tomorrow, March 31, at Essex.
Coach Lisa Roman suits up six sophomores and 11 freshmen on the JV team.
Roman’s offense includes freshmen forwards Cameron Lewis and Chloey O’Bier and sophomores forward/midfielders MacKenzie Osborne and Daisy Ramirez.
