BRATTLEBORO — Lauren McKenney, Hailey Derosia and Olivia Romo all found the back of the net when the Colonels downed Springfield 3-1 on Wednesday.
"Brattleboro picked up the intensity. The players helped each other grow into the game. The girls strung nice passes together and played over the wings. They created some quality scoring opportunities," said BUHS coach Edwin de Bruijn.
The purple and white were coming off of a 4-1 loss to Rutland. Romo scored for the 2-8-1 Colonels, who will play at Rutland on Saturday at 11 a.m.

"The play was up and down the field during the second half. Natalya Forkin kept Brattleboro in the game with many great saves. Brattleboro's team defense played well, but the team's offense just couldn't get anything going."
