CHS defeats Greens Farms Academy
The Christian Heritage School girls’ varsity soccer team traveled to Greens Farms Academy and earned a 2-1 victory on Tuesday for their annual early season matchup.
Early in the second half with the game tied at 1-1, CHS was able to win a free kick in a dangerous spot just outside the penalty area.
Natania Muriel was fouled near the corner as she received a throw in. On the ensuing free kick, Alex Angelini was able to whip a ball on frame that the GFA keeper initially saved as she looked into the sun, but Sarah Ramadanovic was able to jump on and put into the back of the net for her first career CHS goal.
That would turn out to be the game-winner as the CHS team was able to weather the ever-growing GFA offensive storm over the final 38 minutes.
CHS GK Ainiah Perretta ended with six saves in the second half alone and helped CHS earn the victory.
In the early going, CHS and GFA were able to trade shot for shot as each team looked to get the upper hand. It was in the 14th minute when CHS took the 1-0 lead on a goal by Muriel that was set up nicely by striker Mia Angelini and midfield Hope Krekoska.
CHS created a turnover as GFA was trying to build up out of the back off a goal kick. Hope Krekoska was able to win a 50-50 ball that she sent to Angelini at the top of the 18. As she tried to get past a defender, Muriel was there to fire home the shot to make it 1-0.
CHS was able to continue to apply pressure for the next 10 minutes, but it was unable to add to its lead.
GFA began to apply its own pressure and got the equalizer on a goal that was deflected and ended up in the back of the net in the 28th minute. The half would end at 1-1.
CHS is now 2-0 on the season and next travels to Middlebury to take on the Westover School.
