2011-11-18 HS Girl’s Soccer: Peabody edges East Longmeadow, 1-0 in State D1 Final
Posted on November 20, 2011 by Bill
A truly amazing season came to an end at the hands (and feet) of a strong (and nationally ranked) Peabody team at Worcester State University. Except for a fluke Peabody goal in the first half, the eventual game winner, it looked like 2 nationally-ranked teams going at each other – the game was so evenly played! Both teams had numerous scoring opportunities, but each defense did what it did best: snuff them out.
Spartan goalie, Ann Stack, had 10 saves in the effort.
We say goodby to 8 outstanding young women who played their last match as ELHS seniors … Becca Mercieri, Sarah Waltsak, Jess Kazyaka, Devon Wolfenden, Liz Weithofer, Alexa Allen, Alyssa Balboni, and Gabi Rate. Your leadership and playmaking will be missed!
But watch out for next year’s team …
