This past week saw the Braves face three new challengers, with none able to stay with Indian Hill’s firepower on the pitch as they convincingly handled Mariemont, Milford, and McNicholas. The neighboring Warriors were the first to try. They had stunned the Braves in 2016 with a late long direct kick goal to earn a 1-1 draw, but IH was leaving no doubt this year, surging to a 3-0 halftime lead on an early goal by Anna Podojil, who followed that up ten minutes later on a sweet feed from her sister Ellie, and a last minute strike from freshman Megan O’Brien, whose solid efforts have been earning her more playing time recently. Morgan Jackson stretched the lead to 5-0 with two goals midway through the second half off of feeds from Anna, as the rain that had been threatening early on started to fall after halftime.

Indian Hill began a lengthy road swing (6 of 7 games) with another shutout of neighborhood rival Madeira last week. The Braves have not lost to the Amazons since 2012 and rang up their third straight shutout against a team that fought (and pushed and shoved) hard against IH, even moving senior star Mary Englert back into goal in an effort to stop the four time CHL champs. And their efforts worked.

While the Braves dominated most of the game, they were not able to convert on a number of good opportunities in the first half. Coach Dunlap subbed sparingly, but junior Emily Moreira and freshman Lauren Frey came off the bench to make key contributions, with Frey making a late-game step for step long run with Madeira’s lightning fast wing to prevent a point blank shot.

The Women’s Varsity Soccer team opened the 2017 season looking like they’ll be the team to beat again in the CHL and the state of Ohio, with three straight strong performances in victories over Tippecanoe, Fenwick, and Ross – each perennial top 20 teams in the state. After losing only two starters from 2016 to graduation, the Braves return a loaded lineup, while bringing in some new faces to have one of their deeper teams in years (check back next week for a “meet the team” feature).
