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 field hockey, girls volleyball, and girls soccer teams played in the semifinals of the New England Prep School Athletic Council Class A Tournament on Saturday, with the field hockey team advancing to the tournament finals and the volleyball and soccer teams losing to Exeter and Nobles, respectively, to end their tournament runs. Field hockey fell to Hotchkiss in the championship game on Sunday.

Three Loomis Chaffee fall teams — girls soccer, volleyball, and field hockey — advanced to the semifinals of their New England Class A Tournaments with wins on Wednesday.

It was a successful weekend for Loomis Chaffee's fall teams. Four varsity teams earned New England tournament berths, and the girls and boys cross country teams raced to second and third places, respectively, at the Division I New England Championships on Sunday.

The girls soccer team has played some of its best games of the season in the last week as the team beat Greenwich Academy in a home game last week, won at Wilbraham & Monson on Saturday, and was victorious at Kingswood-Oxford on Monday. With three solid victories in the tank, the team looks to keep the momentum moving into Wednesday's match against Northfield Mount Hermon.

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.
