The varsity girls’ soccer team defeated Abington Friends School 2-0 on Friday, October 13, 2017. Lauren Hanna ’21 and Alexandra Long ’20 each scored from 20+ yards in the second half to propel the Lady Cougars to their second Friends School League victory of the season.

“George School and Abington Friends were tied 0-0 at the half, though both teams earned solid opportunities,” said Head Coach John Stevens ’02. “The best chance in the first half came off the right foot of Ella Davidyock ’21—a laser beam that rattled the cross bar with twelve minutes to intermission.”

Ashleigh Curry ’20, Aislinn Carty ’20, Aisha Turner ’20, Lauren Scott ’20, and Mariam Somoye ’20 provided strong play throughout the game, while Miranda Buczek ’19 and Susanne Kowalska ’21, Caroline Eagen ’21, and Nikole Alexopoulos ’21 consistently created scoring opportunities.

All starting defenders, including Alexandra, co-captains Cynthia Menna ’18 and Julianna Caplin ’18 and Sidney Walters ’19 played eighty minutes for George School. Nora Greer ’19 earned her third shutout of the season.

The Lady Cougars will host Shipley on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.
