More Rutland Rec soccer was played this past Saturday and a couple
of updates were submitted. The 3/4th grade Proctor girls maroon got
the best of Killington. Coach Cindy McKearin was able to rotate her
substitutions to where the girls got to play offense and defense.
It was a good strategy putting in fresh legs on offense and making
it possible for each member of the team to score. Among those who
scored were Madison Lee and Victoria George. Coach McKearin said
the teamwork and passing were exceptional.
The 3/4th grade Proctor girls white also was victorious winning
over the Rutland Rec Labs 5-3. Goals were scored by Allison Almond,
Madelynn Flanders and Hannah Anderson. Miranda Martin and Emelia
Tooley made several key saves in the goal.
