Girls - November 1, 2013 - Danvers 2 Marblehead 1
# 9 seeded Danvers traveled to # 8 seeded Marblehead Friday afternoon for a first round matchup in the Div. 2 North section of the State Tournament. Danvers had just beaten Marblehead a week ago 4-3 on the same field to capture the N.E.C. Small crown. Danvers came out very flat and had trouble managing much offense. It was Marblehead that got on the score board 17 minutes into the match on a 30 yard direct kick, beautifully place into the net. Danvers struggled offensively as Marblehead did a good job at marking the Falcon scoring tandem of Kylie Plaza and Shannon Pohle. "The first half was frustrating. We weren't passing the ball and we were getting beat to the ball all over the field. Mablehead was beating us physically and we didn't handle it well and tried to rush everything." Danvers continued to struggle deep into the second half. Although the Falcons managed to shut down the Magician offense, it couldn't muster up it's own opportunities either. It wasn't until there were under 5 minutes to play that Kylie Plaza found the back of the net off of a direct kick from defender Cate Raftery. The goal seemed to ignite the Danvers offense and it resulted in 5 corner kicks in overtime. However, all were well defended by the Marblehead defense and the game went on to penalty kicks.
Falcon goalie Leah Ciampa saved Marblehead's first shot and Delaney Zecha connected giving the visitors the lead after one round. After Marblehead and Falcon defender Nicole Belanger both scored in round 2, Danvers remained up by a goal. The Magician's third shooter basted a ball upper left and put the pressure on Danvers Courtney Arnoldy who calmly scored as well keeping the edge with Danvers. Leah Ciampa made a diving save on Marblehead's 4th shooter leaving it all up to junior Emily Murphy. Murphy made hers sending the Danvers bench into a celebration with the 2-1 win. "This was a really tough one. We didn't play particularly well, but a lot of that had to do with Marblehead playing well. I'm proud of the way our girls never gave up though and fought to tie the game in the waning minutes. Leah was fantastic for us during the shootout and all 4 of our shooters stepped up for the team."
Coach Hinchion was pleased with the play of defender Becca Horn and midfielder Courtney Arnoldy. The Falcons will travel to # 1 seed, Wilmington on Monday, time TBD.
