Lady Barons keep pace with 2-1 win over L-S Field Hockey
With a big game against Section Two leader Ephrata on the horizon, the Manheim Central field hockey team cleared a key hurdle on Monday afternoon by knocking off Lampeter-Strasburg 2-1 in Lampeter.
The victory kept the Lady Barons tied with E-town in second place at 3-0-1 (6-1-1 overall), heading into their battle with Ephrata (4-0-0 L-L) yesterday (Wednesday).
Monday’s clash with L-S didn’t come without a scare, however, as the Lady Barons found themselves in a 1-1 tie at the break. But with 4:28 elapsed in the second, Morgan Wagner scored and that turned out to be the difference in the game.
Central had a slim edge in both corners (7-6) and shots (5-2), and Emma Beamesderfer had one save in goal for the Lady Barons.
L-S took the lead on Bri Garber’s tally and then Bailey Brubaker scored with 1:30 left in the first half, on an assist from Dana Hostetter, to pull the Lady Barons even at the break.
The Central girls were also in action last Saturday in a non-league clash with Section Three contender and they came up a little short in a 2-1 loss in Manheim.
The Lady Blazers’ Emily Brabazon snapped a 1-1 tie at 3:47 of the second half and that was the difference in Menonite’s victory.
In an evenly-played game, both teams had 11 shots and three corners. They traded first-half goals, with Carissa Gehman doing the honors for LMH and then Morgan Wagner answering with 13:52 left in the stanza.
Emma Beamesderfer had nine saves in goal for the Central girls.
Elsehwhere, the Lady Barons hosted Garden Spot last Friday and capitalized on two first-half goals to defeat the Lady Spartans 2-1.
Jillian Wolgemuth and Bailey Brubaker beat GS keeper Petersheim, with assists from Wagner and Wolgemuth. Spot got one back on Haley Klinger’s tally at 14:50 of the second, but they could get no closer.
Central outshot GS 11-2 and Beamesderfer had one save in goal for the win.
Last Wednesday, Sept. 11, the Lady Barons got a scare from Solanco, but pulled out a 3-2 victory in Quarryville.
The Mares, who are still looking for their first Section win, kept the score tied 1-1 at half following an early tally by MC’s Dana Hostetter. But Manheim Central broke the tie with goals from Wagner and Wolgemuth in the first 8:48 of the second and then held on.
The Lady Barons held a 15-5 advantage in shots and Beamesderfer kicked out three saves to pick up the win in goal.
