Class A South girls soccer: Wozny’s strike lifts Hawks past rival Noble

For additional phots go to:

Despite its pressure against the defense conscious Knights, Marshwood found itself locked in a scoreless tie as time dipped under 10 minutes to play.

Elora Montogomery hit a crossbar and then, after a corner kick, the Hawks kept the ball alive in their end. A ball was centered from the left to inside the 18 and Wozny was there to strike the go-ahead score.

“There was a cross from outside the 18 and I simply tapped it back and I turned and I just shot, ” Wozny said. “Honestly, I was a little nervous because Raegan Kelly is a very good goal keeper. She is strong on top and on the ground. I knew it had to be a low shot in order to score. It tipped off her hands. I got lucky.”

“I saw a lot of people, a lot of legs,” Kelly said. “I saw her taking it and then I lost it, then I found it again.”

And nearly saved it.

Noble’s stellar defense, which is centered around the athletic Kelly in goal, also features Alicia Prak, Cassie Chabot, Brenna Frye and Emma Noel in the back. Their game plan was to let Marshwood penetrate deep into the Noble end and then defend and try for a quick counter strike.

Marshwood defended against the counter attack well.

In the first half, Kelly and company did a good job of fending off multiple attacks, most notably from Marshwood senior striker Marin Smith, as well as Casey Perry, Natalie Herbold and Angelina Bisson.

Bisson was involved in perhaps the two best chances, one in which she crossed the ball to Perry who put a shot on net inside the box that was knocked away by Kelly. It pinballed around the box before it was cleared.

The second one was a blast by Herbold from inside the 18 that Kelly knocked away and Bisson just missed putting the rebound in.

Noble had very few chances, but the two best were nearly money.

Sammy Couture, on a counter attack, crossed a nice ball from midfield that glanced off a Marshwood defender to Natalie Randall. Clavette alertly came out and got her hand on the ball as Randall tried to kick it in.

Couture also had a cross to Amy Fleming that the Marshwood defense, led by Katherine Page and Courtney Thim, was able to clear out.

“I didn’t realize how fast their backs were,” said Noble coach Mike Reil. “We couldn’t find a mismatch. We couldn’t put the ball in the net. … I felt like I overcoached. The kids played well, gave it everything they had. They never gave up.”

The Hawks, led again by the persistent Smith, had multiple scoring opportunities in the second half that Noble was able to stop until Wozny finally broke through.

“We knew coming in that Raegan’s their anchor,” said Marshwood coach Chelsea Watson. “She’s so athletic. We know we have to keep putting pressure on and hopefully we’ll get those loose ones in the box — finish one. It took almost the whole game, but all that matters is that you get one. Right?”

After that, the Marshwood did a good job of making sure the Knights didn’t get a good chance at an equalizer.

“I think the most important part is we kept pressure on them,” Wozny said. “We didn’t let them get the ball. We didn’t let them have space. We didn’t let them have an opportunity to score, get a breakaway.”

Marshwood plays at Bonny Eagle Friday night, while Noble goes to Gorham.

Person’s Goal Lifts MHS Field Hockey Past Noble

By Josh Seguin / Sep 25, 2017
NORTH BERWICK, Maine — After coming out with a vengeance early, the Marshwood High School field hockey team was shut down by rival Noble on Monday. In fact, at times, the Knights looked to be the most dangerous and likely to find a breakthrough in the waning moments of a scoreless game.
But at the end of the day, the Hawks proved to be the most resilient.
Leah Glidden fed an open Madison Person with just under seven minutes to go. Person had her first shot saved but gathered the rebound, maneuvered around the goalie and put it in to give her team its first lead. Marshwood withstood late Noble pressure and defeated the Knights, 1-0, in Class A South action.
“I kind of saw (Leah) coming and I know she has that fire in her eyes,” said Person. “She sent it in and I ran for it. After she saved it, I got it back, weaved around her and put it in. It was really exciting to get that goal because on a day like today you just want to go home and not see overtime.”
“Noble really bottled us up for a while, but I don’t feel we were playing our best,” said Marshwood coach Kristin Dupont. “There were times I felt like (Noble) was more aggressive to the ball and we were kind of hanging back. I felt the goal was about time, because we needed to be more aggressive to score; the girls went after that one.”
Marshwood improves to 5-3, while Noble falls to 2-7.
Although Marshwood started quickly, the Knights got the first opportunity when Mallory Feenstra got open but her shot went just wide of the cage.
The momentum quickly turned the other way as the Hawks dominated possession and created many opportunities. Corrin Hasty had a shot saved, Morgan Hasty sent a shot wide and Melanie Dube also had an opportunity, but the Hawks couldn’t find the net to take the lead.
Kassidy Lessard connected on a nice give-and-go with Aspen Dyer for the Knights with about 12 minutes to go in the first half but the shot went wide.
The best chance in the half was off the stick of Glidden, who weaved down the left wing, found space and sent a shot toward Noble goalie Kaylee Mayotte. Mayotte got a piece of it, had it go over her shoulder and it was pushed just wide by a defender.
Glidden created a good portion of the Hawk offense and she always seemed to be finding seams in the defense.
“Throughout the game I was definitely looking to get the ball up and send it in so our other forwards could get a touch on it and get a goal,” said Glidden. “It was nice to see it finally happen on the winning goal.”
“She is always going to be a playmaker for us,” said Dupont. “Leah has a little different game this year because she has to be that person for us, while last year she didn’t”
As the teams settled in the second half, the chances became few and far between. The Hawk goal came with 6:51 left, at a time the game seemed destined for extra time.
“I think our defense broke down a little bit,” said Noble coach Amanda Ledoux. “They had multiple shots and the girl moved around our goalie; we had no defender behind her.”
With 1:45 left, Emily Carleton had a low shot go off the post. It appeared to go in, but the whistle had blown for a penalty corner to be called. She also sent a shot just wide and Lessard also had a chance, but the Knights could not bury the equalizer.
“We had great shots and great shots to the corners,” said Ledoux. “We just couldn’t get a seam to get them in. We needed to get someone to post but didn’t at times.
“That hit the post,” she added of the apparent goal, “which was hard because we may have had the chance to get the rebound. It is the ref’s call at that point but I think they were better off calling it. That was a good game.”
Marshwood hosts Deering on Thursday looking to up its win streak to three. Noble travels to Scarborough on Wednesday.

Dear Marshwood Families,

This fall, the Boston Latin School is hosting 27  high school senior students and two teachers from Denmark. To enhance their cultural experience, they are looking to experience a rural educational setting in addition to the urban experience of Boston. Marshwood is honored to provide this opportunity and to welcome them to our community for three days.

They are scheduled to arrive in South Berwick on Wednesday, October 4th and will leave the morning of October 7th. During this time they will be visiting Marshwood High School classes and participating in our homecoming festivities. Since their goal is to learn about our local culture they would like to be placed in home stays for the three evenings that they are with us. If you would like to share your home with one or two Danish students for the three nights,  please let us know by emailing  your name, address, contact information, pets, number of students you may host, preference to host boy(s) and/or girl(s), and any further questions you may have. The requirements for home stays include a bed in possibly a single room, breakfast and evening meals, and transportation. Additional information and a detailed itinerary will follow. After school hours you are welcome to show your Danish student(s) around and introduce them to life in Southern Maine.

Thank you for helping make this experience a positive one for the Danish students and the Marshwood community.
