As Liberty won its first match against Bethlehem Catholic on Becahi’s home turf in August, the Hawks paid the Hurricanes back with a 3-1 victory last Friday at Liberty.

“They beat us on our home turf so it was really nice to get them on their home turf,” said Becahi forward Brooke Bisko, who scored her 96th career goal in the 76th minute.

The Hawks were down 1-0 at halftime after Kathryn Wescoe scored on an assist by Maryam Mohamed at 24:28.

“This happens to us a lot. We’re usually down, but at halftime we talked about staying composed and going out hard,” Bisko said. “We were on turf, so we knew our touches were going to be a little different from our grass field, so we knew what we were going into.”

When Emma Carreras scored early in the second half, the Hawks felt a change in the game.

“That pumped up our energy and there was definitely a momentum shift,” said Bisko.

Carreras scored unassisted, and Emma Pfeiffer followed up with another unassisted goal for the Hawks four minutes later.

“The Hawks jumped on the bus, then jumped off the bus, then touched their toes a couple times.

Then at 3 p.m. sharp, proceeded to play the beautiful game beautifully,” said Becahi coach Angelo Amato.

Ellie Fries made 11 saves for the Hawks, and Destiny Deschamps made six saves for the Hurricanes.
