Sequoits Prevail Through The Storm

Sequoits take the win over Marian Central Catholic High School, 2-1.

Last night the girl’s Varsity soccer team took on the Marian Central Catholic High School Hurricanes. The conditions during the game were not the greatest, but the game still continued. The game was close in the first half, however, no one was able to get the ball past the goalkeeper and put it in the back of the net. At the end of the first half the score was 0-0. The next half the Sequoits turned it around.

“I feel during the first half we weren’t connecting passes and playing as a team,” sophomore Gabby Michaels said. “We didn’t press collectively and weren’t relaxed.”

The second half was more exciting to see. The first goal of the game was a PK awarded to the Sequoits because of a handball by one of the Hurricanes. Tessa Furlong took the kick and buried it in the back of the net to give the Sequoits a 1-0 lead.

Later in the half the Hurricanes struck back and tied the game back at 1-1. The game continued to be close and then the Sequoits took the lead again; Ella Roberts took a free kick and crossed it into the box, to have Rachel Moore finish the play by sneaking it past the goalkeeper. The Sequoits did not let the Hurricanes back into the game. The final score was 2-1, and the team was proud of what they accomplished in the second half.

“We pressed immediately after we lost the ball, we won 50/50 balls, we played aggressively and connected passes which led to two goals,” Michaels said.

The Sequoits battled tough against the Hurricanes and were able to come up on top. The girls play next April 4, at Deerfield High School.
