Freeman Scores Early, Wins Physical Match With Glen Allen
Douglas Freeman, behind the scoring of junior Lauren Bruns, defeated Glen Allen 3-0 Monday night.
Glen Allen maintained control of the ball for the majority of the first 10 minutes of the game, then gave up two goals to Bruns in six minutes for a lead the Rebels would not relinquish. After Bruns' second goal with 29 minutes remaining in the first half Glen Allen kept her out of the scoring column the rest of the night. Midfielder Shannon Galt score on a free kick with 29 minutes left in the game to round out the scoring.
Bruns remarked that it got much tougher after her second goal when Glen Allen “man-marked” her, keeping another player on her at all times.
Coach Bartoszek told his team they had to match Glen Allen’s intensity if they wanted to win.” Looking forward he said his team has “to play fast to the ball and play better each game.”
