Broughton dominated possession throughout the first half (Enloe's first and only scoring opportunity of the first half came in the 31st minute), but were unable to get a ball on frame. The Lady Caps failed to convert on a handful of corner kicks or on a free kick from just outside the box.
After a 30-minute weather delay early in the second half, the Caps were on the attack again. But the scoring drought continued: During one four-minute span, Broughton hit the crossbar on one shot, hit one shot wide to the right, hit another shot wide to the left and failed to convert on back-to-back corner kicks.
The Caps continued to attack, though, and senior Emma Willard finally broke through with goals in the 52nd minute and 54th minute to give Broughton a 2-0 lead. Sophomore Meredith Brown got the assist on the first goal, while junior Liza Cozart got the assist on the second goal.
Having finally broken the ice, the Caps added a third goal in the 65th minute when Brown buried a rebound from a shot that hit the crossbar. The game's final goal came when freshman Sara Hanna Fortier finished off a pass from sophomore Abby Manring to make the score 4-0.
Senior keeper Eliza Taylor - aided by a strong defensive effort led by senior Kelly Ann Evans - earned her first clean sheet of the season.
Earlier, sophomore Anne Lassiter Barnes scored five goals to lead the junior varsity to an 8-1 victory over Enloe. Also scoring for the Caps were Maria Scharfe, Alexa Hamm and one of the Appleby twins (sorry, but we couldn't tell which one).
