Girls soccer: Berkeley Prep blanks Tampa Prep 3-0

TAMPA — On a cold Saturday afternoon, the Berkeley Prep girls soccer team got off to a hot start in its Headmasters' Challenge match with Tampa Prep.

The Buccaneers scored two early first-half goals and cruised to a 3-0 shutout in the challenge, a one-day winter sports competition between the schools.

Berkeley Prep (11-4-2) scored in the ninth minute when senior defender Taylor Richardson banged in a crossing attempt for her team-leading 12th goal of the season.

Just seven minutes later, another senior defender, Megan Williams, made it 2-0 when she lobbed a loose ball over Terrapins keeper Jordan Hatton, who faced 17 shots.

Senior Sam Newhaller put the game out of reach, firing a loose ball into the back of the net to make it 3-0 just 10 minutes into the second half.

"We have a lot of seniors on our squad right now, and they were determined to come out and play solid and play strong and play together and play smart," Berkeley Prep coach Ken Roberts said.

The Tampa Prep (11-5-4) offensive attack was kept off balance all game and had only two shots on goal against Bucs keeper Bryane Heaberlin, who posted her second consecutive shutout. The Terrapins didn't have a single shot on goal in the first 55 minutes.

"We're just playing our game, and we have our goals set, and we're going to try to achieve them one at a time," Roberts said.
