(4/5) Mauldin 3 - 1 Boiling Springs

   The Mavericks put in a game of Total Soccer this evening against a spry Boiling Springs side.  The girls dominated possession through good challenges, smart touches and accurate passing.  Mallory Allen opened the scoring with a clean finish off a cross from Juliana Traurig.  Juliana added to the scoreline when she intercepted a ball near midfield and wove her way through the defense before slotting the ball home.  Amy Berglind won a challenge deep in the corner and put a strong shot on goal which Mallory Allen tapped in to finish the scoring.  The midfield did a great job of challenging high and early, effectively killing off any Bullodog opportunities.  The defense had another excellent match limiting Boiling Springs to a handful of shots, only a two of which threatened the goal.  One snuck just inside the far post, but on the other, Carolyn Sullivan made a difficult save look easy, parrying the ball clear at full stretch, to secure the win.
