MV Girls Soccer Starts Tourney with Shutout Win
The Mystic Valley girls’ soccer team played the first game of the tournament like they played all year long as they recorded yet another shutout in game one of the MIAA Tournament. The girls beat Maimondes by a score of 5-0 in front of a large crowd of Mystic Valley fans on Sunday night.
Mystic Valley had reason to worry before the game as their leading scorer and captain, Krystiana Dimaro broke her foot at practice on Saturday and is out for the duration of the season. There was no need to fear however as Katarina Diplacido stepped up and played her best offensive game of the season leading the way for the Eagles’ offense with 3 goals and 2 assists. Sydney Carlino and Meghan Foley both chipped in with a goal apiece. Caroline Williams and Sam Rizzo both had assists on the night. Meghan Foley and Alex Cimetti set up big at the center half position.
After the game coach Michael White said “it was a great team win I thought we went to the ball a lot better in the second half than we did in the first half and that really was the difference in the game. The defense also played very solid last night led by Kathryn McPherson. Jackie Lane was once again a force in the net allowing no goals and playing the role of the field general from her position. We have worked hard all season to get to this point, if we play our game and do the little things right than we will be very successful moving forward. We have a big challenge ahead in Notre Dame tomorrow night”.
The Eagles will host 5 seed Notre Dame Tuesday night at Malden Catholic at 7:00.
