The offense isn’t the only part of the team to credit though. The goaltending by the Eagles tonight was outstanding. Goaltender Madeline Paquette end her afternoon with a 61 percent save rate; her great skills in front of the net were a major part of her team’s victory tonight.
From the jump in this matchup, the Oak Hall offense was hot. It seemed like nothing could stop them, even through the few goals that their opponent scored.
The Lady Eagles had a goal in mind, and they achieved it. Effectively.
Their next matchup is against the winless Eastside Highschool.
