Lady Indian Soccer Team 2-0 win over Frankfort
Berkeley Springs High School goalie Amanda Waltman recorded her third shutout of the year as the Indians defeated Frankfort 2-0 on Saturday, September 15, at Morgan Field in Berkeley Springs.
Berkeley Springs led 1-0 at the half due to freshman Michelle Williams. Williams stole the ball from a Falcon defender and beat the Frankfort goalie, giving the Indians the lead in the 28th minute. The goal would prove to be the winning goal, as the Berkeley Springs defense and Waltman completely neutralized the Falcon offense.
"This was our first-ever win over Frankfort," said Berkeley Springs coach Rocky Riffle. "This was a big win for us and I am really proud of the girls."
Meghan Mock added an insurance goal for the Tribe, with 13 minutes left in the game.
Waltman had seven saves in goal.
"I thought our defense was outstanding," Riffle said. "Brittany Fox, who doesn't get a lot of press, does a tremendous job on defensive. I think she is one of the top defenders in the state. She was one of the big reasons we were able to defeat Frankfort."
The Lady Indians lost earlier in the week to Musselman, in what coach Riffle described as a "good, competitive game." Berkeley Springs fell to their Berkeley opponent 4-2.
Musselman, which had a comfortable 2-0 lead at the intermission, saw their lead cut in half when Riffle beat the Lady Applemen goalie in the 37th minute.
But, Musselman didn't panic and scored the next two goals for a 4-1 lead, before Mock scored the game's final goal on an assist from Riffle, to make the final 4-2.
Waltman played well in goal, stopping 15 of Musselman's shots.
"I am pleased with our overall performance," Riffle said. "I think we are improving every game and we're still not back to full strength."
