CCHS Downs LS in Season Opener!
The Patriots opened the 2021 season with a big win against arch rival Lincoln-Sudbury. LS got on the board first, scoring an impressive header off a corner kick early in the game. Once the first game jitters settled down, CC took control of the game making it very hard for LS to mount any sustained offense. After a number of opportunities, CC found the back of the net when Nia Hislop scored on a well timed pass from freshman, Avery Cox to tie the game at the 30th minute. CC scored two more goals before the half. Goals from sophomore Natalie Gahan (her first goal on Varsity!) and Hazel Johnstone on an assist from Nia put the Patriots up 3-1 at half.
In the second half, the Patriots controlled much of the play and notched another goal in the 57th minute when Caroline Coletti scored with Nia assisting. The Patriots capped off their scoring effort on a beautiful one touch shot by sophomore Cara Ubaldino ( her first varsity goal!) off a well placed cross from Nia in the 67th minute. Late in the game, LS scored on a strong shot off a direct kick.
Final Score CC 5 LS 2
