WhitmanHanson girls'soccer

The Whitman Hanson girls' soccer team advanced to the quarter finals in the division 1 south tournament with a 3-1 win over Wellesley. Despite their offensive pressure the Panthers were unable to score in the first half. In the second half Olivia Borgen got the Panthers on the board when she took a cross from fellow freshman Kelsee Wozniak and slipped it behind the keeper. Freshman Nora Manning doubled the lead shortly after when she took an Anika Floeck feed and tucked the ball in to the back of the net. With 2 minutes remaining Wellesley got a goal back and then Senior Samantha Smith closed it out with a blast from 25yds out. The defensive unit of Sam Perkins, Courtney Woodward, Erin Wood and Olivia Johnson were outstanding for Whitman Hanson. Alexis Billings and Ava Melia also had strong games in the midfield. Keeper Skylar Kuzmich made 6 saves in goal.
