Senior captain Lily Gaston set the tone for the upcoming playoffs.

“I’m so proud of the team. We’ve come a long way and the coaches have done a really great job. Now we prepare for playoffs,” she said.

Freshman Grace Ferency scored the first goal of the game with a spectacular one-touch shot from junior captain Eva Blatz’s bouncing rebound.

Lily Gaston brought in a hat trick and an extra goal for good measure. She scored twice in the first half–with a shot from the 30 and by beating a defender for a left upper 90. In the second half, she scored off of a rebound, and for her fourth goal, she received a pass from senior Julie Heh, turned, and buried the ball into the net.

Junior captain Eva Blatz scored halfway through the first half, tipping a cross from junior Meghan Tischler over the Highlander goalie’s outstretched arms.

Bethel scored off a corner when Eva Blatz put the ball on the 6 and sophomore Olivia Dawson pushed the ball into the net with a high volley.

Junior Meghan Tischler beat the defender and put a banger into the upper 90, notching the Lady Hawk’s eighth goal of the night.

Freshman Sydney Felicetti secured her first varsity goal when she too put the ball into the net with 8:00 left.

The Hawks are without a doubt excited and determined to get ready for playoffs.

“As a team, everything is starting to click together, and it is rewarding to see all of our work pay off. We’ve been training hard, but this next week will bring out the true character of the team in preparation for playoffs,” declared Eva Blatz.

The Lady Hawks stand in fourth place going into playoffs and hope to come out on top of their competition.

On Monday, Oct. 7, Bethel has a non-section game against Norwin Senior High School at home. JV starts at 6 p.m. and varsity starts at 7:30 p.m.

As a team, everything is starting to click together, and it is rewarding to see all of our work pay off. We’ve been training hard, but this next week will bring out the true character of the team in preparation for playoffs.”
