The Warriors beat the Lions, 3-0, to remain undefeated.
Another Dual County League match leads to yet another Lincoln-Sudbury girls soccer team victory. This time the Warriors defeated Newton South, 3-0, Monday afternoon to stay undefeated (6-0). L-S's continued dominance begs the question: What is the team capable of doing this season? “The sky is the limit,” said Warriors head coach Kate Berry. “I don’t know. I think they have the potential to do what they want to do. They really get to write their own script. I feel like if they want to come and work hard, and work smart, they can make things happen.” Besides having highly-skilled players who have tremendous field vision, the coach noted that the team has gelled together. “This team chemistry is great, on and off the field,” she said. “And I…

Hannah Rosenblatt nets a pair in the Warriors' 2-0 victory over A-B.
Hannah Rosenblatt is only a freshman, but she is certainly playing like a seasoned veteran. The striker netted all of her team’s goals Thursday afternoon, helping lead the Lincoln-Sudbury girls soccer squad to a 2-0 victory over Dual County League foe Acton-Boxborough. “I’m really pleased with how she has progressed,” said Warriors head coach Kate Berry. “We knew she was a skilled player who had a lot of potential. And I feel as though every day in practice and every game day, she’s been that much better. I feel as if she’s a player who is starting to settle down and get comfortable with the girls she is playing with.” With the victory, L-S remains undefeated at 5-0. A-B, meanwhile, falls to 3-4-1 on the season. “I’m disappointed by [the…

Madison Acton's four goals lead the way in an 8-0 drubbing.
The first time the Lincoln-Sudbury girls soccer team faced Waltham last year, the match ended in a hard-fought 0-0 draw. The results were a wee bit different this season as the Warriors steamrolled the Hawks, 8-0, in a Dual County League game Thursday afternoon. “I told my girls before the game, ‘You got to take care of business right away,’” said L-S head coach Kate Berry. “So one of the goals that we had, the first 5 minutes we need to have at least one shot on frame. And I think we had three shots on frame in the first 5 minutes." L-S improved to 3-0 with the win. “I’ve been really pleased with the way that they’ve been playing," Berry said. "I think they’ve been combining real well. And I think we have some girls who can go to goal …

Emily Casey tallies lone goal for L-S in 1-0 victory over Wayland.
From a myriad of scoring opportunities, the Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School girls soccer team managed just a lone goal in the season-opener Wednesday afternoon. But the goal proved decisive as the host Warriors defeated Wayland, 1-0. “I just said to the girls that I thought that they had some really nice combination play at times,” said Warriors head coach Kate Berry. “I thought we could be more consistent with our combination play. But I thought there was some really pretty soccer played out there.” Combination play was vital in the goal as freshman Hannah Rosenblatt was in the right corner when she sent a bouncing pass toward the net. Senior midfielder Emily Casey, situated to the front left of goal, collected the ball and ricochet …

Lincoln-Sudbury girls soccer season recap.
"Unlucky." That's the word senior Cassie Bursma uses to describe the 2010 Lincoln-Sudbury girls soccer season. The team finished the season 7-7-4, but a couple of goals at key moments could have made the difference between a .500 season and a deeper run in the postseason. "We had a lot of success," said head coach Kate Berry. "We just couldn't score as many goals as we would have liked. To say we were 7-7-4, if you were just to look at that it feels very mediocre and I don't feel as though we were a mediocre team in any way." For much of the season the story for the Warriors was their inability to score. They went three games without a goal at one point, a streak that ended with a 1-0 win over rival Acton-Boxborough. Bursma called that …

Warriors fall 2-1 in penalty kicks.
As regular Dual County League rivals separated by just a few miles, it's no surprise the Concord-Carlisle and Lincoln-Sudbury girls soccer teams are so familiar with each other. And because the teams are so evenly matched, it's also no surprise their two regular-season meetings were decided by a goal each in favor of the Patriots. So it was a shock to no one that the teams' Division 1 North Sectional game came down to penalty kicks. Sixth-seeded Concord-Carlisle prevailed 2-1 on penalty kicks at a cold and soggy Doug White Memorial Field. "What a well-fought game. L-S had good chances and we had good chances," C-C coach Nancy Slocum said. C-C got PK conversions from senior captain Posie Holmes, senior Lindsay Cook and sophomore phenom …
