  For the third year in a row, the Revere High School girls’ soccer team is on its way to a postseason berth. The Patriots collected their ninth victory of 2022 by downing Chelsea, 7-1, on Tuesday at the Revere High School Field.

  The win improved Revere’s overall record to 9-5-2, As a result, the team has secured a place in this year’s playoff tournament. Head coach Megan O’Donnell now has her squad setting its sights on the upcoming postseason.

  “The girls played hard. Today’s win was a total team effort,” she said after Tuesday’s victory. “We are looking forward to the tournament.”

  The Patriots played an away tilt at Malden on Thursday (after press deadline) and close out the regular season with a rematch at Chelsea next Tuesday, Oct. 25. This Tuesday’s win over Chelsea was pretty much determined in the first half.

  After a scoreless opening 15 minutes, the Patriots erupted for three goals over a 10-minute span and added a fourth tally later in the period for a 4-0 lead.  Revere would score three more times in the second period while Chelsea managed to put one past Patriots goalie Nisrin Sekkat to avoid being shut out.

  Midfielder Nahomy Galvez ended up with a hat trick on the day, followed by single goals from Sandra Torres, Kaylin Oliva, Giselle Salvador and Jessica Nova. Galvez’s first score came off a corner kick at about the 16-minute mark of the opening half.

  Contributing two assists each were Erika Mejia, Nataly Oliva, and Jennifer Duarte.  Revere was able to play most if not all of its roster on Tuesday, as many of the younger players on the team received significant game time.

  Some of those who impressed most were Grace Ramirez-Carpio, and Kaylin and Nataly Oliva. The Patriots have also been led all season by the efforts of veteran players Amina Chitaoui, Kimberly Doblado, Tiffany Hoang, Kyra Delaney, and Ryesha Mezan, among others.
