Girls soccer advances to State A Final with shutout of Princeton

The girls beat Princeton 3-0 in the State A Semifinal and are one win away from a State title.

The girls’ soccer team has recorded their fifth shutout of the postseason with a 3-0 win over Princeton on Wednesday, November 4.  With the shutout, the team has not given up a single goal since the regular season.

The scoring got going 11 minutes in, as senior captain Sophie Roux gave the corner kick to senior Taylor Gelling, who headed the ball into the top left corner of the net for a 1-0 BSM lead.  The score would remain this way to the half.

In the second half, the Red Knights got a huge insurance goal a minute in, as junior Maren Noble scored from the 35 yard line to make it 2-0 BSM.  Ten seconds later senior captain Aleksa Tataryn, Ms. Soccer and potential Aspire Athlete of the Week, put a header into the net for a 3-0 BSM lead that they would never relinquish.

With the win, the girls move on the State A Championship Game for the fourth time in the last five years.  The team won back-to-back State titles in 2012 and 2013, both with wins over Blake.  The team will play rival Orono in the title game, who they beat 1-0 on September 8.
