Stovsky, Kahn lead Bison to 2-0 win over Brooklyn

Hannah Kahn and Lexi Stovsky each scored second half goals to lead Beachwood to a 2-0 win over visiting Brooklyn on Monday.

“The girls played really well,” said Beachwood coach Tom Fowler. “We had some good things working. We had players in the right place and we have a much more dynamic offense than we’ve had earlier this season. It’s been a nice change.”

Daniella Israelstam assisted on Stovsky’s goal and Mackie Davis set up Kahn’s score.

Fowler has used several different lineups this season and now he feels confident with the group he put on the field against Brooklyn.

“We’ve got Hannah Kahn and Lexi Stovsky up top and they’re starting to really connect,” he said. “That changes the look of our game in a pretty big way.”

Sidney Eisenberg and Davis are in the middle and Jaime Rotsky and Hannah Cantlie are the wings. In the back, protecting freshman goalkeeper Zoe Winger, are four freshmen in Raya Holz, Olivia Adelman, Abbey Brewer and Rachel Kurland.

“Abbey and Rachel play fullback and the other two play center back,” Fowler said. “All four freshmen defenders are doing a great job.”

The shutout was the second of the season for Winger.

“She’s doing a great job,” Fowler said. “She did not have a great deal of experience but she’s learning a lot. I’m happy to have her in goal.”

Offensively, with Kahn and Stovsky leading the way, the Bison have become more dangerous but the game plan still revolves around keeping the ball away from the opposition.

“We’re still trying to maintain possession and keep the ball out of the net,” Fowler said. “We’re trying to do more exciting stuff up top. We have good speed on the wings this year and they’re crossing balls and doing all the stuff they’re supposed to be doing.”

The Bison return to action on Thursday when they travel to Chagrin Valley Conference Metro Division rival Independence.
