Raymond IHGMS Girls Soccer Team Cruise Past Sanborn 6-0
Submitted by Sam Hendricks    10-8-15

The IHGMS Girls Soccer team hosted the Sanborn Indians at the Middle School Field on another beautiful fall afternoon.  This would be the final regular season home game for the 8th Grade Girls, (Hannah Reardon, Erin Roderick, Alexis Ostman, Lauren Faust, Gloria Brun, Brianna Rand and Emaleigh Boucher).  With the support of their younger teammates, the girls were determined to make this game a memorable victory.

With the team’s usual keeper under the weather, Mhrissa Emery was pressed into full-time duty and she was up to the challenge, posting her first career shutout.  She made a couple of nice saves and handled the ball well.  The team in front of her played with a calm confidence that has become their calling card.

Lauren Faust moving out of pressure


Erin Roderick opened the scoring with a direct free kick from outside the 18 that broke through the Sanborn keeper.  A short time later, Gloria Brun showed outstanding persistence, digging for the ball against two defenders in the corner, finally feeding the ball to Jeni Plender who tickle the twine

  Madilyn Robinson stayed red hot with two more goals, the second coming on a nice pass from Emma Marini.  Sanborn’s efforts to generate some offense were smothered all day by the Rams defenders.  At the half, the score was 4-0.

Clare Cole extended the lead to five early in the second half with an assist from Brianna Rand.  Rachel Carter closed the scoring, deflecting a Jeni Plender blast past the keeper.   This team plays strong team defense and generates a lot of transitional scoring opportunities.
