Broughton records 2-1 win over Sanderson

Broughton found the back of the net twice Wednesday night to earn a 2-1 victory over the visiting Sanderson Spartans.

The Caps struck first, in the 13th minute, when junior Anne Lassiter Barnes streaked up the middle of the field to finish off a pass from junior Meredith Brown and put Broughton up 1-0. Meanwhile, the Caps played another strong defensive game, limiting Sanderson to just a couple of scoring chances in the first half.

With the Caps holding on to a slim 1-0 lead to begin the second half, freshman keeper Sydney Spoor stretched out to deflect a Sanderson shot in the 49th minute that appeared to be on target.

Broughton managed to build on its lead when sophomore Sara Hanna Fortier scored on a breakaway in the 57th minute. Junior Maggie Gall had the assist.

Sanderson tacked on a goal in the 76th minute to narrow the margin, but the Caps were able to hold the Spartans off in the final minutes of the game to secure the 2-1 conference victory.

Earlier, the junior varsity suffered a 1-2 loss to Sanderson despite controlling possession for much of the game. Sanderson scored first, about 10 minutes into the game, but the Caps tied it up on a goal by Lynde Flanders from a cross by Mary Martha Stokes. Sanderson went ahead 1-2 on a goal about midway through the second half.

Next up is Wake Forest, which visits Broughton tonight.

Caps Remain Undefeated

The Broughton Girls Lacrosse team continued its winning ways on Friday with a very convincing victory over Enloe.  The Final score was 28-4, but what made this game so unusual was the fact that Enloe played the entire game without a goalie. The Enloe girls put up a valiant effort, but it was already a tall task to slow down the powerful Broughton offense and impossible to do so without a goalie. 
The offensive show was led by Carol Seigler and Leaha Renee Burgess who scored 5 goals each while Georgia Davis and Sydney Russell contributed 4 goals apiece.  The entire offense was clicking as indicated by the 17 assists on the 28 goals.

Carson Harvey had another solid game at Goalie as her defensive teammates continued to limit the scoring opportunities for the Enloe Eagles.  The strong defensive effort also included 7 takeaways and 5 interceptions.  The robust effort continued on both offense and defense as the coach was able to freely substitute all positions on the field in the second half.  


LAX 6-0 After Enloe Win

The boy's varsity lacrosse team hosted Enloe Friday evening. Six players scored goals to contribute to the 13-2 victory.

Van Parker - 4
Ben Haugh - 1

Caps earn shutout victory over Athens Drive

Broughton posted its third win of the young season -- and its first shutout of the season -- with a 2-0 non-conference victory over Athens Drive on Thursday night.

The Caps continued their strong defensive play, with freshman keeper Sydney Spoor making key saves on the few occasions when the visiting Jaguars managed to get off a shot. Meanwhile, Broughton got on the scoreboard about midway through the first half when freshman Elizabeth Gilchrist scored off a pass from junior Maggie Gall.

Broughton had other opportunities to add to their total in the second half, but were thwarted by several nice saves by the keeper for Athens Drive (including a diving block of a shot by sophomore Ava Neijna that was headed for the upper corner of the goal).

The Caps did add another goal, midway through the second half, when Gall buried a deflected shot by junior Anne Lassiter Barnes. 

Earlier, the junior varsity continued its winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Athens Drive. Even though Broughton controlled time of possession, the two teams played to a scoreless tie in the first half. The Caps continued to control play in the second half, but Athens Drive took advantage of a breakaway to record the game's first goal.

The Caps came roaring back, though, with Hallie Worth heading in a corner by Ashton Kendall to tie the score. Then Worth and Kendall combined again, with Worth finishing off a cross into the box by Kendall, sealing the 2-1 win for Broughton.

Broughton drops Cap 8 opener to Leesville

Despite a valiant defensive effort throughout the game, Broughton suffered a 2-0 conference loss to visiting Leesville Wednesday night.

Playing in cold and windy conditions, the Caps were on the attack to start the game, with freshman Elizabeth Gilchrist hitting the post on a shot in the opening minutes of the game. That was followed by a breakaway opportunity by Broughton that also came up empty.

But then the Caps found themselves on the defensive for much of the rest of the game, fending off several attacks and countless corner kicks by Leesville. Several Broughton players, from senior Savannah Jones working back to repeatedly stymie the Leesville attackers to freshman Adair Warner clearing some dangerous corner kicks, fought to keep the Caps in the game. At halftime, the score was 0-0.

Leesville finally broke through in the 51st minute on a disputed goal. The Leesville attacker was on her hands and knees in front of the goal when she managed to nudge the ball over the line to break the scoreless tie. Leesville scored again, in the 61st minute, to make the score 2-0.

Lady Caps Go Cold vs Leesville

Windy and cold temps make for a challenge to stay warm during the match vs Leesville. The varsity girls soccer team fall 0-2.

Caps get big win in the wind at The Brittany

The Caps got goals from six different players (including two from junior Abby Manring) to record an impressive 7-1 victory over the Jacksonville Cardinals Friday evening in The Brittany Willis Memorial Scholarship Soccer Showcase.

The wind was cold and brisk for the game in Wilson, and often altered the the ball on passes and kicks in the air. But Broughton managed to get their second win of the season as they get ready for conference play to begin next week.

The Caps controlled possession from the outset, and got on the scoreboard first when a long, arcing shot by junior Lucy Krueger in the 13th minute curled into the goal over the outstretched hands of the Jacksonville keeper. A little over a minute later, the Caps thwarted one of Jacksonville's few scoring chances of the first half when freshman defender Adair Warner headed away a dangerous corner kick by the Cardinals.

The Caps quickly followed that with a second goal, with freshman Elizabeth Gilchrist scoring off a corner by sophomore Ava Neijna in the 16th minute.

Broughton struck again in the 23rd minute when junior Grace Hopkins finished off a shot by junior Anne Lassiter Barnes that the Jacksonville keeper fumbled. The Caps went into halftime up 3-0 and in search of shelter from the frigid wind.

The Cardinals scored their only goal shortly after the second half began, but the Caps wasted no time in regaining control of the game. Less than a minute after Jacksonville scored, junior Meredith Brown finished off a pass from Gilchrist to give Broughton a 4-1 advantage.

Playing with the wind at their backs and a greater sense of urgency, the Cardinals created more scoring chances for themselves in the second half. But Broughton's defenders fought off each attack, with sophomore Abby Finan making a nice stop on a Jacksonville breakaway in the 47th minute and junior keeper Taina Maisonet making two saves late in the game.

Broughton's fifth goal came in the 62nd minute when Manring cleaned up a shot by Krueger that the Jacksonville keeper couldn't handle. Manring scored again in the 72nd minute with a bullet into the back of the net to put the Caps up 6-1.

The Caps, with everybody on the roster getting playing time, continued to attack even as their lead grew. Barnes ended the scoring, in the 75th minute, when she finished up her own shot after the Jacksonville keeper fumbled it. The final score was 7-1.

Following the game, Ava Neijna received The Brittany sportsmanship award for Broughton.

The Caps are now 2-0 as they head into conference play with a home game on Monday against Wake Forest.
