The Mystic Valley Regional Charter School girls’ soccer team recorded their second win as they played against Innovation Academy on a sunny Thursday afternoon (Sept. 15) at Eastern Avenue. The Eagles took the lead in the first half with a goal from captain Reilly Hickey. During the second half, the Eagles dominated possession and continued to put pressure on Innovation Academy’s keeper. Lucia Antonucci moved the ball into the penalty area and passed to Evie Reynolds, who put another number on the Eagles side of the scoreboard. The Hawks responded and were able to get the ball through the net during a one-on-one against goalkeeper Caroline Crowley. Captain Reilly Hickey made another run towards the goal and was able to score again, edging out Innovation Academy. As has been the case all season, the Eagles defensive unit proved to be strong, limiting Innovation to just one goal, and the offense ignited, firing shots to give the Eagles the 3-1 win at the final whistle.
Mystic Valley Head Coach Matthew Offner was very pleased with his teams’ performance, stating after the game, “I am pleased with the team’s response to a very difficult past few games, and, hopefully, we can use today’s match as a momentum boost going into next week.”
On Sept. 20 the Eagles traveled to play the Rams of Shawsheen Tech and lost, 2-1.
