Early season undefeateds

Ian Clark's Corner Kicks: Bow off to hot start, faces Campbell today

The Bow Falcons are flying high to start the season.

Last year's NHIAA Division III girls' soccer runner-up, Bow is off to a 4-0-0 start and will play at Campbell of Litchfield (3-0-1) at 4:15 p.m. today in a battle of early undefeated teams.

"Campbell is always a very good game for us. We look forward to it," said Bow head coach Jay Vogt. "We know it's going to be a hard-fought game and fun to watch."

Bow has fired out of the gate not only undefeated, but by posting mostly one-sided wins in the process.

Bow has registered wins of 7-0 (twice, over Hillsboro-Deering and Fall Mountain) and 4-0 (earning a measure of revenge over defending champion Hopkinton). The closest game has been a 2-0 win over Bishop Brady last week. That's a combined score of 20-0.

"I'm a little surprised we've started so well so quickly," Vogt said. "We graduated our entire starting defense from last year. We had good players coming back, it was just a matter of finding the best fit for everyone."

Bow plays a ball-control game, pressuring until it takes control and then working the ball forward methodically.

The Falcons are led by six seniors, midfielder Sarah Carlson, forwards Naomi Kramer and Lindsey Vogt (coach's daughter) and defenders Madison Duffy, Christy Vinnenberg and Delene Watt.

"We've been spreading out the offense and the seniors have done a great job leading the way and getting them to play as a team," Vogt said. "So far, so good."

Can't beat the heat: Wednesday's Division III boys' game between Pelham (2-1-0) and host Raymond (2-1-0) was moved to today at 4 p.m. at Raymond Middle School due to the high temperatures Wednesday.
