Bucks Swat Hornets

BMU 5 – Enosburg Falls 4

Jay Peak: Friday, October 20th, the Bucks traveled up into the mountains to face the 3-5 Enosburg Falls Hornets. Ultimately, the Bucks would prevail in double overtime, beating the Hornets 5-4. As well as Bucks junior Maya Christy completing her first hat trick. BMU Head Coach Parish Eiskamp commented on his unique practice ideas leading up to the game, “Well, yesterday we used a nitro ball [A slightly larger volleyball that is overinflated and very hard, designed for quick bounces and fast skips.] for shuttle drill and passing, so that was interesting.” Being the first time many players for the Bucks, had experienced turf most of the team appeared timid in the opening minutes.  Ultimately, the Bucks would find their stride with junior Maya Christy putting the hurt on the Hornets, scoring early into the first half, and would continue, scoring her second goal of the night just a few minutes later. The Hornets responded with junior Rory Schriendorfer finding the space between the posts, making it a 2-1 game heading into the half.

Coming out of the half, the Bucks began where they left off, with senior Jordan Alley finding the nylon and putting the Bucks up 2. However, the Hornets found their stride with senior Ellie Swan scoring a breakaway goal. Enosburg sophomore Ella Kane followed Swan with a deep shot just outside the 18 tying the game 3-3. Jordan Alley once again found the net for the Bucks, drilling a shot from outside the 18 that would put the Bucks up 1 heading into the final minutes of the second half. Still, the Hornets managed to respond, with sophomore Kailie Morrill scoring the goal that would ultimately send the game into a 20-minute sudden death overtime broke into ten-minute halves. As darkness crept in, both goalies struggled with eyesight and visibility; the Bucks were able to capitalize first, with Maya Christy once again sneaking one between the posts and completing her hat trick. BMU Head Coach Parish Eiskamp shared his thoughts on the game: “I felt like the girls showed a ton of heart today, big double overtime victory against a division two school.” As the Bucks head into playoffs, they will travel to Poultney to face the 7-6-1 Poultney Blue Devils on Tuesday, October 24th, at 3 p.m.
