MCHS Varsity Soccer vs Rappahannock – Senior Night

Published by at 10:37 pm under girls soccer,mchs,rappahannock

Oh yeah.  Madison 4, Rappahannock 0.

Madison’s varsity girl’s soccer team started off the night recognizing 12 seniors:  Becca Aldridge, Anna Artale, Carrie Brown, Leanna Coates, Kayla Compton, Kathryn Crouthamel, Rachel Crigler, Cameron Farmer, Colby Snow, Quinn Snow, Brittany Tasker, and Lindsay Wheeler.  With 11 seniors on the field at the start of the match, it was rather obvious early on that these seniors had no intention of loosing their final home regular season match.  I’m not sure I’ve seen a Madison soccer team play with that intensity since 2010. And once the underclassmen were subbed in, it was equally obvious that winning was the only option for them also.

It was mostly a defensive match during the first half, with Senior Cameron Farmer finally scoring for Madison with less than a minute to play in the half.  Senior goalkeeper Brittany Tasker held Rappahannock scoreless for the first half.  Senior Lindsay Wheeler broke things open for Madison in the second half, scoring 3 goals in the first 13 minutes.  And, not to take anything away from Cameron or Lindsay, but sophomore keeper Kathleen Machleit played one hell of a second half in goal!!  She made three stops that I thought were almost sure goals.  One of the stops coming on a penalty kick after a double yellow card in the box.

The match was stopped for 30 minutes in the first half for lightning, and called with 22 minutes to play, also for lightning.

If you live in Madison, and you didn’t leave that match proud to be a Mountaineer, it’s probably time for you to move 🙂

Sorry, I know you don't like those faces, but this photo is a good representation of the intensity of this match.

Lots of celebration after the win 🙂

Madison’s JV girl’s soccer team also won this afternoon, defeating Rappahannock 2-0.  Both Madison goals were scored in the first half, one by Skylar Colvin and the other by Jennifer Rohde (I tweeted Jackie Dews scoring the second goal, sorry for the mixup!)

Skylar Colvin scores.

Jennifer Rohde scores.
