Lincolnville co-ed soccer blanks South Bristol
SOUTH BRISTOL — The Lincolnville co-ed middle school soccer team racked up another victory, this time against a developing South Bristol team by a score of 9-0 at South Bristol on Wednesday, Sept. 12.
It was a rough first half for the South Bristol eleven with the Lynx jumping out to a lead with only 42 seconds gone when winger Griffin Dubrow intercepted a throw by the keeper and quickly converted it into a shot that sailed into the net.
That was followed 16 seconds later when midfielder Kara Andrews corralled a loose ball after Dubrow bounced a pass off of a Mariners player and immediately hammered it past the keeper.
There was a lull for almost seven minutes before Andrews sent in a corner from the right that winger Victoria Sparks deflected to striker Mikayla Talbot who alertly redirected it into the nets.
At the 16:09 mark, winger Liliana Palise sent a smooth pass into striker Roo Boetsch who fired home for the fourth tally.
The next goal was an own goal in the midst of a crowd that occurred when a Mariner defender tipped the ball into their own net.
Palise added an unassisted goal to her previous assist at 24:19, followed by the last goal of the half at 28:00, the second of the game for Boetsch.
The second half found things looking up for the Mariners as they only allowed two for the entire half. Both were scored by Colin Brandy, the first unassisted at 49:33, and the second off a pass by Jackson Strout with only eight minutes left in the game.
It was another strong showing by the Lincolnville booters, but due credit must be given the South Bristol squad which kept on pushing throughout the entire game.
Recording the shutout for the Lynx were keepers Aiden Aselton, Mason Clark, Althea Dayhoof, and Palise, making her debut in goal.
