Madison girls soccer uses width to finish off Hall-Dale

...“That’s usually our game,” Emery said. “When we start trying to do things different, it makes it harder. When we get back to the long balls out to the wings, we get back in our groove, I guess.

“Sydney always seems to be where the ball is. It’s amazing.”

LeBlanc finished off the goal for the 2-0 advantage.

“When we go wide, we have some success,” Madison co-coach Mike Walsh said. “We also, oftentimes, can go right down the middle. But we were not making good passes there, so we needed to spread it out.” ... hall-dale/

Madison hands Oak Hill its first loss

...“I was surprised,” LeBlanc said of the number of chances the Bulldogs were able to carve out for themselves. “Their defense is definitely the best defense we’ve played all season. We were spreading (the ball) wide and then coming through the middle. We practice it every day in practice.”

LeBlanc took a great feed right through the heart of the Oak Hill back line, going in 1-v-1 for an easy finish and a 1-0 lead.

“It was really important,” LeBlanc said. “We knew we had to keep our intensity up. This is the biggest game, or the second biggest game, of our season so we really had to play our best game.” ... ss/2212521

Hey Hay: Madison goalkeeper comes up big in girls soccer win over Oak Hill
Lauren Hay makes 6 saves in matchup of MVC title contenders.

...“I wasn’t sure if I was going to get it. I just tried to dive and hit it out of bounds,” the senior goalkeeper for the Madison girls soccer team said. “I was hoping for a corner (kick) instead of it going in.”

Hay did just what she intended, using a six-save effort to preserve a 2-0 Mountain Valley Conference win Thursday, as Madison handed Oak Hill its first loss of the season.

Both teams are now 11-1-0, the Raiders having been shut out for the first time this fall in the face of a revamped Madison formation. ... -oak-hill/
