Oaks Dominate Walsingham

DSC_5521The Oaks dominated possession with crisp passing and defeated Walsingham Academy 3-0 Friday as Virginia Sanford scored a pair of second-half goals.

In the second half, the ball rarely crossed into the Walsingham offensive side and, when it did, Jessie Cavolt was stalwart in goal.

Collegiate scored in the first half when Natalie Kanter pressured a Walsingham defender into an own goal on a corner kick by Sarah Smallets.

The score remained 1-0 with the Oaks controlling play until late in the second half when Sanford was knocked down in the box and converted a penalty kick.

Minutes later, Hannah Beale found Smallets who put a pass through for Sanford to poke into the goal.

The Oaks, ranked tenth in the region, play Atlantic Shores at home Tuesday at 5:30.
