Jenkins and her players boarded a bus at the Alexandria private school on Friday morning and sat through a six-hour ride before meeting Manhasset. Reed and junior Kathryn Cavallo each scored four goals and junior goalie Gussie Johns stopped 15 shots in the narrow win over the Indians.
On Saturday, St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes had the chance to preserve its unblemished record even playing without Reed for the entire second half after she picked up two yellow cards in quick succession.
The Saints erased a two-goal deficit to tie it at 8 before ceding the go-ahead goal to St. Anthony’s sophomore Isabela Mangan with about two minutes remaining. The score was set up by Maggie Bill, an ultra-athletic midfielder who will join Reed next year on the lacrosse team at North Carolina and also play soccer for the Tar Heels.
In the final minute, St. Stephen’s/St. Agnes managed two shots but could not muster the equalizer. Senior Besser Dyson recorded two goals and two assists in the loss.
“Our girls were devastated, very upset, but afterward, we said, ‘You have nothing to be embarrassed about,’” Jenkins said. “They played harder than I’ve seen them play in a long time. That’s all we can ask for.”
The Saints got back on track with Tuesday’s 16-4 win at Holy Child and will be tested again with Friday’s trip to No. 3 Good Counsel.
