(Newburyport) I took advantage of another home game (Tuesday-November 11th) for the defending state champion Newburyport girls’ soccer team and watched them defeat North Reading at Cherry Hill, 2-0.
This was an entirely different game from the Nazareth game a few days ago. North Reading not only had good players but they share the same conference (Cape Ann League) as Newburyport. The Hornets had hung with the Clippers earlier in the season losing only 3-1.
Again, situated near the opponent goal I caught a pretty good shot (pictured above) of a goal being scored. It was the first one and in this case turned out to be the winner in the 2-0 victory.
Veronica Poirier was the goal scorer and it came after a Clipper corner kick (Laura Muise) and a scramble in front. Veronica rushed down the middle and drove the ball (note the ball in the picture) high into the net.
Next for Newburyport is a rematch with Lynnfield. The teams tied during the regular season (2-2) and this promises to be a very tightly contest affair. The game will take place tomorrow (Thursday) in Lynn at Manning Field at 5PM. I hope to be on hand for it.
