FREEDOM (SOUTH RIDING): 3
Tough loss for the Loudoun Valley Field Hockey team.
Loudoun Valley scored first with a steal by Senior Midfielder Eva Swartz passing the ball up to an open Junior Forward Charlotte Alto who put the ball in the back of the goal midway through the first half.
Freedom tied the game later in the First half.
Freedom then tallied two more scores in the second half.
Valley's Junior Goalie, Genna Marsh, had an outstanding game in goal in spite of the score. Valley fought off 21 defensive corners and had 12 saves in a hard fought game. Valley was assessed a total of 15 Penalty box minutes, but due to timing in the game, played a total of 12 minutes 45 seconds down a player in the penalty box, compared to only 2 minutes by Freedom. Valley was not able to overcome that hurdle against a superb Freedom team that out hustled and out played Valley on this night.
Valley will have an opportunity for a rematch at Loudoun Valley on October 14th at 5:30pm. Should make for a fun game to watch.
