Yesterday afternoon, as a breezy autumn chill swept over Fitch Field, the girls’ soccer team overcame a halftime deficit to storm back for a 5-2 win over the Heschel Heat.
The Bears dominated possession in the first half but came up empty on several promising attacks, including a blast from Scarlett Davey that found the crossbar. Instead, it was Heschel who lit up the scoreboard first to take a 1-0 lead into the break.
Despite the missed opportunities, the Bears came out for the final 40 minutes with renewed energy and executed brilliantly. Mindy Yoder scored the equalizer on an assist from Quinn Davey. Scarlett Davey gave the Brook a 2-1 lead off of an assist from Yoder, before Yoder scored again, courtesy of a Caroline Cho pass. Heschel halved their deficit to pull within 2-3, but a Jade Sinclair score (Yoder assist) and a second goal from Scarlett Davey (Cho assist) provided the final margin.
Claudia Gomez added several key saves, including one where she left her line on a breakaway to maintain the Blue & White lead.
Yoder was a catalyst for The Brook on offense, creating constant opportunities on the wing while Cho’s passing helped the Bears finally break through the Heat defense. Scartlett and Quinn Davey used their blinding speed to carve up the Heschel backline and fuel the second-half surge.
The Bears are back in action on Monday in a home match-up with Long Island Lutheran.
