POPE JOHN PAUL II HIGH SCHOOL, MA: 20
Last night, the Varsity squad faced the undefeated SJP Lions. We knew it was going to be a tough game; and it was.
After a late start, the Lions came out with a roar, scoring within the first 40 seconds of the game. They quickly followed with another goal. The score was 4-0 until Captain Sarah Walman won possession on the draw and took the ball straight to net, ultimately scoring twice for West, with 2 assists and 1 additional shot on goal.
At halftime, the score was 16-1. After much discussion, West battled back in the second half and definitely looked better all around. Captain Brigid Morrison was perfectly positioned in the 8 to score once against the Lions, with 1 assist and 4 additional shots on goal. Freshman Ciara Morrison got in the game, putting one in the net for the Navs. Freshman Sophie Cook put the pressure on with 3 shots on goal. Sinead Salty Dolan had 2 shots on goal as did Olivia Noonan. Our fearless freshman goalie Grace Pepe had 4 saves in net yesterday and our defense worked hard throughout the game to try and slow the Lions down. The final score was 20-4 SJP and our record is now 3-2.
It was a tough day on the field and we have a lot to discuss during practices over the next few days. We will have an additional practice on Sunday from 2-4. If you are unable to attend, please contact me.
