Two orders of Fries to go

Boonsboro back to .500 as striker closes door on Blazers

CLEAR SPRING - A 1-0 lead in its pocket at halftime, the Boonsboro girls soccer team decided it needed to drive forward in the second half.

That drive included an order to go: an extra helping of Fries - Allison Fries, that is.

The sophomore scored twice in the second half as the Warriors shut out Clear Spring Tuesday night, 3-0, to get back to the even mark for the season at 5-5-1.

The first goal came on an assist from Ashley Reeder and the second goal was unassisted.

"Allison Fries is our leading scorer," Boonsboro coach Karen Sornson said. "She knows how to finish the goal and that is what she did both times."


Boonsboro senior stopper Maggie Tierney knew that the Warriors had to work on a few things at the midway point.

"At halftime, we assessed what our first-half plays were," Tierney said. "Then, we went out and did a better job in the second half. We possessed the ball, we kept our heads up and we played our game. We are looking forward to finishing our season strong with our last two games."

Goalkeeper Cara Peckens recorded the shutout with had five saves.

"We wanted a shutout and we attained it," Sornson said. "Cara Peckens does a great job of communicating with the team and leading the team from the back. Our whole defense pretty much shut down any scoring opportunity that they had. I thought that Clear Spring's goalkeeper also did a good job."

Senior goalkeeper Kari Mowen made 11 saves for Clear Spring (3-8-1).

The first 31 minutes of the game were scoreless. Sophomore Heather Young then broke the ice by scoring on an unassisted goal from the left side for Boonsboro (5-5-1).

"Heather Young got promoted from the JV team early in the season," Sornson said. "She is a strong player for us. I am pleased that she got us on the scoreboard first. We needed that."

Sophomore Allison Fries scored both goals for the Warriors during the second half through the middle. Even though his team lost, Clear Spring coach Scott Myers was pleased with the performance of his players.

"When it was 1-0 at halftime, it was anybody's game," Myers said. "That kept our spirits up. We started some offensive plays. But we just couldn't put the finishing touch on them and that is what it takes to win games. Our girls played pretty well. But we have got to put the ball in the net."
