Varsity Soccer - Girls vs. Berkshire School
Event Type: Regular
Date: October 12, 2011
Event Recap:
The Loomis Chaffee girls soccer team lost 1-0 to the Berkshire School on a second half goal by junior Murphy Newman. The Pelicans dominated the game and outshot the Bears 26-6, but could not find the back of the net.

Loomis dictated play in the first half with much of the possession and attacking opportunities. Senior captain Bre Derella (Glastonbury, CT) helped control the midfield, switching the point of attack and creating numerous opportunities to get in behind the Bear’s defense.

With a 0-0 score at halftime, the Pelicans were confident entering the second half and continued to press. A quick counterattack by the Bears and miscommunication in the Pelican defense led to the lone goal of the game. With 30 minutes left in the game, the Pelicans pushed numbers forward and created several more opportunities to score, but the Bears’ defense held on to the lead.

For the Pelicans, it was a disappointing loss. “Give credit to Berkshire”, said Coach O’Brien. “They were a physical team and worked very hard. Unfortunately, we had one breakdown defensively which led to their goal. Again, we are creating a lot of opportunities in front of the net, but we have to have the urgency and composure to finish”.

Up next, Loomis returns home for a 3:00 pm kickoff against Deerfield Academy on Saturday, October 15th.

The girls varsity soccer team earned a 3-1 win over Founders League foe Westminster on Saturday night. The 7 p.m. game under the lights at Westminster avoided the predicted rain and rewarded the Pelicans for focusing not on the weather, but on what they could control, which was their play.

The Loomis Chaffee girls soccer team opened the season on Saturday with a 6-0 win at home against Class A opponent Convent of the Sacred Heart.
