Bucks Down The Devils

BMU 7- Poultney 2

Poultney: Tuesday, October 24th, the Bucks took the long ride down to Poultney, Vermont, to face the 7-6-1 Poultney Blue Devils. Ultimately, the Bucks came out on top, beating the Blue Devils 7-2. The Bucks got off the bus and went straight to work opening up a ferocious scoring display, starting with Jordan Alley scoring her first goal 10 minutes into the match, assisted by BMU senior Karli Blood; Alley followed up by scoring her second goal only a few minutes later. Maya Christy chipped in, scoring her first goal of the half with 5 minutes to go; Christy would again find the space between the posts only a minute later, making it a 4-0 game going into the half. 

Coming out of the half, the Blue Devils struck first, with senior Bella Mach scoring a PK only 3 minutes into the half. But the Bucks were determined to keep this game well out of the reach of the Devils, with Bucks senior Karli Blood notching her name into the scoring column with 25 minutes left to go in the game. The Devils responded right back only seconds later, with junior Annaleice Taylor finding the nylon, making it a 5-2 game with 25 minutes left. Once again, the Bucks found the net, with Maya Christy scoring her 3rd goal with 20 minutes to go, making this Christy’s second hat trick in the past two games. Blood would be the dagger, scoring her second goal with 12 minutes left, burying the Blue Devils 7-2. 

BMU senior and team captain Jordan Alley shared her thoughts: “Stepping onto the field, we knew it could potentially be our last game. We really stepped up and took everything we’ve been working on all season and utilized it. Despite the long bus ride, we stepped off ready to play and determined to keep our season going.” Bucks Head Coach Parish Eiskamp added, “We’ve been talking about that trajectory of a team of a team lots of times you have a team that plateaus midseason, and they just kind of stay there, and playoffs come, and they’ve already reached their peak. This team I feel like as the season as gone on they’ve continued to climb that ladder and play better and better and better.” As the Bucks continue to roll, they will face the number 1 seated Arlington Memorial Eagals on Friday, October 27th at Arlington at 6 o’clock.
