Alexander Wins Sectional Title

posted by Chad Flint in sports, Alexander, Girls Soccer.

 With a 1-0 win over Bloomfield the Alexander Girl's Varsity Soccer team won the 2010 Class CC Section V title Friday night.  The only goal of the game was scored in the 4th minute by Sophomore Midfielder Abby Shilvock unassisted.  Alexander had several other opportunities to make the score bigger in the first half but was unable to do so.

In the 2nd half Alexander's defense of Seniors Savannah VanSon and Amber Finan along with Sophomore Gabby Kwiatek held strong in front of Senior Goal Keeper Hannah Wilson and held the 1-0 lead.  The midfield of Seniors Claire Hartl, Tessa Bigelow, Morgan Mattice, and Autumn Atkinson along with Shilvock contributed to the team defensive effort in the 2nd half.

Wilson came up with 2 huge saves in the final 10 minutes to keep Bloomfield off the scoreboard.

Alexander had won their previous 3 sectional contests 6-0 over Avon in the 1st round, 1-0 over Bishop Kearney in the quarterfinals and 4-0 over Naples in the Semi-Final.

Alexander moves on to play Marion in the Class C State Qualifier game Tuesday the 9th at McAvoy Park in Rochester at 6pm.  The winner of that game will advance to play Holland from Section VI in the state quarterfinals which are Saturday at 2pm at GCC.
