Girl’s soccer took down Pemberton 6-0 on Wednesday, marking eight straight wins and seven shutouts for the Pirates. Here is our recap of the game.
With the win, the Pirates are now 8-0-1 and have allowed just two goals through nine games.
“Knowing that we have trust in the back is so important for us because it makes us have a positive outlook on the game,” Miranda Sackner said.
“The defense does an incredible job for us. Sometimes they don’t even let Maddie (Ogden) touch the ball some games. I’m really proud of them. We’re definitely a defensive team.”
It didn’t take long for the Pirates to open the scoring as Sackner found the net less than three minutes into the contest.
Sackner, with her back to the net, unleashed a bicycle kick for her lone goal of the night.
“The ball came in and I just flicked it back and it went in,” Sackner said.
The score was assisted by Hailey Gutowski, who finished the night with three assists and one goal.
“We came into the season knowing we were going to be good because we had the chemistry last year,” Sackner said.
“Last year we did really well. So far, we’re 8-0-1. I’m so happy for us. We’re so close. We do everything as a family. I’m pretty proud.”
Justyne Gutowski made it 2-0 before Grace Kenville and Hailey Gutowski gave Cinnaminson a 4-0 lead.
Emma Karch scored twice within 28 seconds to cap the scoring in the 6-0 victory.
“We are offensive this year too,” Sackner said. “It’s not just one person either. It’s all of us together. It’s been good.”
Girl’s soccer plays its third game of the week this Friday, October 7 at home against Bordentown at 3:45pm.
