Georgetown Soccer Ousted in North Finals

Georgetown gathers before Division 3 Finals at Lynn

Georgetown gathers before Division 3 Finals at Lynn

(Lynn) I took in the Division 3 boy’s soccer final at Manning Field yesterday.

The upstart Royals hung around early but eventually lost 2-0 to Hamilton-Wenham.

The windy condition favored one end over the other.  Georgetown had the wind in the first half but came away empty.  One General clearing kick caromed off a Royal player and then off the crossbar in the first half.  That was as close as Georgetown would get.

The second half was dominated by H-W and their excellent short passing game.  Jon Britton confirmed his player-of-the-year rating netting both second half scores.  One came from a scramble in close while the second one happened on a breakaway. 

That Georgetown was even in such an important game was remarkable.  Limping along with just three wins after fourteen games they responded to that backs-against-the-wall position by putting together a winning streak that only ended yesterday in Lynn.

Well done, Royals.  Well done, Coach Ron Comeau.
