Top-Seeded Soccer Team Cruises in Second Half

DSC_8374Junior Demetra Protogyrou scored on a rebound early in the second half and the Oaks dominated play the rest of the way, defeating Trinity at Meadow View, 3-0, in the VISAA quarterfinal game at home.

The Oaks were without three starters due to injury and began slowly. But the second half belonged to the top seed despite playing with a thin roster on a torridly hot afternoon.

Cameron Brown and Hannah Beale, both freshmen, scored for Norfolk Collegiate.

Keeper Jessie Cavolt was ever-steady in goal. Ann Burns Morrison and Beale had strong games in the midfield and Brown, Sarah Smallets and Sarah Smith each had chances on the offensive end. In the back, Natalie Batzel and Georgia Drinkwalter patrolled, limiting Trinity’s chances.

The team plays fourth-seeded Atlantic Shores at 4 p.m. Friday in Richmond. For more pictures from the game, to to Oaks Quarterfinal Win.
