Noble, Friedbauer Both Strike Twice in 5-1 Win

After taking a 1-0 lead into the half, the girls’ varsity soccer team exploded for four goals in the second frame on their way to a commanding 5-1 win over DCD in their season opener. In front of a supportive home crowd, Kiki Friedbauer kicked off the scoring at the 21:07 mark off a beautiful cross from Milly Noble. The duo really turned it on in the second half, however, and was directly involved in the team’s final four goals. Another standout for the Blue & Gold was newcomer Alice Shu. Shu demonstrated tremendous composure in her first game and connected on a handful of well-placed passes up the field. The varsity squad will travel to Park next Wednesday looking to avenge a lopsided loss last year.
