Much has been made about how this weekend marked a “changing of the guard” for the U.S. women’s national team with Taylor Cummings, Kayla Treanor and Alice Mercer retiring. The American senior team downed North Carolina in the Fall Classic, but the USA Select U16 and U18 teams showed the long-term future is also bright. Both teams topped their peers from the Haudenosaunee and Ontario Saturday, combining for a 4-0 record in the Brogden Cup.

USA U18 started its day with a 23-3 win over the Haudenosaunee and ended it by beating Ontario 20-3. Chloe Humphrey (Darien ‘23/North Carolina), one of the most touted players in her high school class, shined in both contests. The high school senior combined for 12 points on 10 goals and two assists.

Meanwhile, USA U16 downed the Haudenosaunee 22-2 and Ontario 17-5. Kaleigh Sommers (Fairfield Ludlowe/Stanford) tallied six points across two games.

NOTABLES

  • USA U18 defeated Haudenosaunee U18, 23-3. The Americans never trailed, jumping out to a quick 3-0 advantage when Humphrey registered her first of the day with just under six minutes to play in the first quarter. The Haudenosaunee scored about two minutes later, but the Americans responded by scoring the next six to take a commanding 9-1 lead when Lena Doreen (Glenelg Country ‘23/Duke) scored at 7:05 of the second quarter. After a Haudenosaunee goal at 5:50 of the second quarter, the American defense locked down, blanking their opponent until there was 7:50 left in the fourth quarter. Humphrey finished with six goals and one assist, while Caitlin Barrett (Manhasset ‘23/Duke) tallied three goals and two assists.

  • USA U18 defeated Ontario U19, 20-3. Humphrey scored once and Ava Arceri (Smithtown East ‘23/Stanford) tallied back-to-back goals to give the Americans an early 3-0 lead. Ontario countered with a goal at 6:50 of the first quarter, but the Americans scored eight of the next nine and went up 11-2 on a Barrett tally with 5.9 seconds until halftime. Kate Timarky (Centereach ‘23/Notre Dame) posted six goals, while Humphrey finished with four goals and one helper.

  • USA U16 defeated Haudenosaunee U16, 22-2. Powered by an early hat trick from Kelly Blake (Medfield/Boston College), USA scored the first 12 goals of the game to seize control. The Americans led 12-1 at halftime, and after giving up a goal midway through the third quarter, blanked the Haudenosaunee the rest of the way. Blake finished with three goals and an assist. Sommers and Truus Van Wees (Taft ‘24/Michigan) each posted two goals and one assist, and Tess Calabria (St. Anthony’s/UNC) netted a hat trick.

  • USA U16 defeated Ontario U17, 17-5. Nine different Americans found the back of the cage against Ontario, led by hat tricks from Sommers and Maeve Cavanaugh (Archbishop Spalding ’25). Grace Holland (Episcopal Academy) made a team-high four saves. The Americans took a 5-1 lead in the final minute of the first quarter on a goal from Madison Rassas (Georgetown Visitation ‘24)/Notre Dame). Ontario opened the second-quarter scoring, but the Americans rattled off the next four to go in front 9-2 on a Rassas. Though Ontario scored in the final minute of the half, the Americans closed the game on an 8-2 run to seal the Saturday sweep.
