Win for Ghosts Wasn’t Half Bad

October 12, 2018

The Westford Academy girls soccer team defeated Weston -- and survived Mother Nature -- during Dual County League action.

GIRLS SOCCER

Westford 2

Weston 0

It was raining so hard the referees decided to call the game at halftime because of flooding in the middle of the field and dangerous conditions.

Since half the game was played, Westford was awarded the win.

Scoring both of the goals was Ally Giovino. One came off of a beautiful pass five minutes in from Brooke Ditcham. The other came on a penalty kick.

Playing well for WA (7-3) was Lindsay Blais, Shadee Saberi, Bella Hillman and Emily Morin. Mya Barber-Mingo had 4 saves.

BOYS SOCCER

Chelsea 2

Shawsheen Tech 1

CAC-leading and undefeated Chelsea held off Shawsheen when a free kick deflected off the wall of defenders and just past ST goalkeeper Mike Repucci to break a second-half tie.

Shawsheen’s Gavin Pigott put the clamps on Chelsea’s Delmer Romero, one of the state’s top scorers, with tight man marking. ST’S goal was scored by Jared Rizzo after taking a perfectly-placed pass from Tyler Archibald.

Matt Pustizzi, Joe Hansen and Elias Flaounas all played well for Shawsheen, which suffered its second loss, both to Chelsea.
