MHS girls play hard, show improvement

Members of the 2019 Middlesex High School varsity girls soccer team include, front row from left, Karime Juarez, Lakin Millen, Sarah Blake, Faith Jones, Anabelle Hall, Arviette Underwood, Marissa Halbig, Natalie Cutler, Madysen Davis and Adrienne Galloway; back row, assistant coach Claire Evans, Addie Ott, Stacie Brandenburg, Delaney Ruark, Danielle Jones, Payton St.Louis, Allison Blake, Devon Cooke, Amber Daughtry, Faraja Washington and head coach Eric Smith.

The Middlesex varsity girls soccer team fell to Northumberland twice and West Point in recent action.

On May 8 a strong Northumberland team defeated the Lady Chargers 3-0. The Lady Chargers played very well the first half with some solid performances from everyone on the team, said Lady Charger coach Eric Smith. 

The second half was still a balanced game but Northumberland capitalized on some mistakes. 

“We really showed that we had gotten better this year,” said Coach Smith.

The Middlesex defense was led by Karime Juarez and Sarah Blake. The offense was led by Payton St. Louis and Marissa Halbig.

On May 10 Northumberland triumphed 7-0. “We knew this was going to be a hard game to play because we were down three key starting players and we only had three substitutes on the sideline,” said Coach Smith. “Friday was hot and attrition and lack of depth got to us quickly. Our girls did what they could against a quality team, but Northumberland was really on its game and it seemed like every shot went in for them. We took this one on the chin and learned a lot during this match.”

Middlesex’s defense was led by Sarah Blake and Natalie Cutler. The offense was led by Delaney Ruark and Madysen Davis.

On May 13 Middlesex lost at West Point 4-0. “It was a good game from both squads,” said Coach Smith. “The score doesn’t show how well we played against one of the best teams around. Our girls were really aggressive and played some very good defense. We had some good runs and shots on goal but could not find the net.” 

The Middlesex defense was led by Sarah Blake, Karime Juarez, and Natalie Cutler. The offense was led by Delaney Ruark, Marissa Halbig, and Devon Cooke.

The Lady Chargers played their last regular season game on May 14.
