The Sunapee girls soccer team headed into Thursday’s regular-season finale eager to solidify its spot among the top 4 teams in the Division IV standings.
And despite the emotions of Senior Night and two tough matchups against top tier opponents earlier this week, it was the Lakers who left celebrating a 2-0 win over Wilton-Lyndeborough. Coach Myles Cooney’s team carried play for the majority of the contest, and was finally rewarded with the game’s first goal when Lynnsey Trabka knocked in a pass from Mary Ann Cousens midway through the first half.
Sunapee added to that lead late in the first half when graduating senior Lexie Hamilton fired this shot past the Warriors’ keeper to put the home team up 2-0.
The Lakers’ offense continued firing off shots on goal during the game’s final 40 minutes, but Wilton’s defense stood strong to keep the two-goal deficit in tact. YCN News spoke to Lexie Hamilton after the game to ask her about the emotions of Senior Night, and her team’s goals heading into the tournament.
Sunapee rounded out the regular season at 12-3-and-1 will begin the tournament as the number 3 seed.
