Greene 4 Windsor 0
WINDSOR – Just two games into the season, Greene coach Sue Carlin was quick to praise the amount of improvement in her team since its first scrimmage three weeks ago. “Today was the best that we’ve played as far as scrimmages and our two games,” Carlin said. “We passed it well, we saw the open player, and people were cutting and receiving.”
Greene received all the scoring it would need when Andrea Day tallied off a pass from Jahna Driscoll, and senior midfielder Abbey Wentlent followed in her own shot after a penalty corner to put away the game’s second tally for the 2-0 halftime lead.
Three of Greene’s four goals came off penalty corners with Emily Conroe and Driscoll finding the Windsor cage in the second half. “We executed really well in the circle tonight,” Carlin said. “They were making the extra pass, and it made a big difference.”
