Bainbridge Island FC G06 Blue 2 Washington Rush Select G06 1
Game played at Battlepoint Park, Saturday 9th November 2019 - North Puget Sound Division 2

Thankfully, the morning rain had come to end by the time our Bainbridge Island FC G06 Blue took to the field in a potential league winning game against Rush Select G06. The Bainbridge girls needed a win to guarantee a top place finish in the NPSL Division 2. Earlier in the season, the girls had gone away to Rush and come home with a 3-1 victory and were hoping for the same in the return match up.

Very early on in the game it was clear it was going to be a physical battle, with some strong challenges going in from both sides in the midfield. Just as the Bainbridge midfield of Claudia Triggs, Riley Becker and Gabby Weis had started to take control of the game, the Rush team had a breakaway and earned a corner after a good block from Maggie Smith. The corner was short and Bainbridge thought they had cleared the ball to the edge of the box when a great strike from the Rush player went straight into the top corner of the goal. 1-0 to Rush.

The rest of the first half continued to be a tough battle, with few scoring chances falling to either side. Good work from Olivia Memke and India Barry down the wings tried to earn good chances for BIFC, but strong defense from Rush meant the home team remained behind 0-1 at half time.

The Bainbridge girls came out strong in the second half and quickly leveled the game at 1-1. Triggs got the better of the opponent in a midfield challenge and then made a good pass to Maya Fletcher who had made a great run forward. Her shot was initially saved by the Rush goalkeeper, but rebounded back in to Fletcher's path who rounded the now out of position goalkeeper and slid the ball into the empty net. 1-1.

The game then fell back in to the familiar pattern of a battle in the midfield. Rush started to get more of a foothold in the game and it took great defensive work from the Bainbridge girls to stop Rush from getting any significant chances. However, one chance did fall to Rush who took a strong shot from the edge of the box, the ball looked destined for the bottom corner until an super save from Bella Ramirez kept the ball from the goal.

With time running out in the game Bainbridge went for one more big push forward, Kate Breen won the ball in midfield and found Becker in space. She turned and looked forward and saw Anna Wachter making a defense splitting run, Becker put the ball right in to Wachter's path. The rest was all Wachter's brilliance. She held off the defender who was pulling and tugging at her shirt, she looked up and saw the keeper rushing off her line and hit an exquisite lofted shot over the keeper into the top corner of the goal.



2-1 Bainbridge and three more points that ensure the G06 girls will be NPSL2 champions in the girls under 14 division. Head coach Mike Kinsey commented after the game "it was a very pleasing and hard fought win, and I am proud with how the girls have played this fall season".

Our game of the week for this coming weekend is our G09 Blue who play at home on Saturday against Seattle United G09 South Blue.
