The Lady Braves (4-2) soccer team played their third home game of the season on Nov. 14 against the East River Falcons (3-4) on the Reservation.

At the start of the first half, freshman Heidi Wicks proved to be a main component in the victory over East River. Wicks took the first shot of the night, but was denied by the Falcons goalie. However, just before water break, Wicks took the ball down the field and helped with a goal, made by junior Emily Riggs, 1-0.

After water break, the Falcons went for a goal twice in a row within five minutes, but senior Brenna Yokiel, Boone goalie, saved the ball. With three minutes left in the half, junior Cynthia Bagozzi attempted to score the second goal of the night but was unsuccessful.

At halftime, the girls were leading 1-0.

Improving their already ahead score, junior Taylor Wolfinger and Wicks started the second half with a goal. Wolfinger cut in for a cross and Wicks kicked the ball to the back of the net. Wolfinger later scored a goal with a cross from Bagozzi, making the score 3-0.

The Falcons started to play with more force by running down the field with the ball towards the goal, but junior Alexis Tamvakis cleared the ball out of the box before they could take a shot. Falcons regained possession of the ball and sophomore Lexy Morton fouled inside the box, which meant the Falcons got to take a penalty kick. After the penalty kick, the score was 3-1.

In the last 20 minutes of the game, the girls defended their goal, stopping the Falcons from making any attempts to score a goal.

Freshman Helena Koroshetz made the fourth and final goal of the night, 4-1.

The Lady Braves play The First Academy Royals (1-2) on Nov. 28 at 5:30 p.m.
