WATERBORO — The Massabesic girls soccer team suffered a 10-0 shutout loss at the hands of the Scarborough Red Storm during Massabesic’s breast cancer awareness game on Monday night.
“I (knew) the Red Storm was coming. I (knew) they’re going to play the ball well. I (knew) they have 65 kids who played soccer since they were five so I (knew) technically they were going to be really good. My girls were a little scared, they scored seven on us in the first half but in the second half they only scored three and for us that’s a victory,” said Massabesic head coach Jamie Alonso.
The Red Storm (11-0) opened up the scoring just 30 seconds into the contest.
Nine minutes later, Madison Marinko headed in a ball from Emily Johnson to extend the lead. At the 16:20 mark, Ashley Sabatino headed in a corner kick.
With 12:22 left in the half, Jocelyn Couture crossed the ball in front of the Mustang’s goal and Sabatino finished for a 4-0 score.
Two minutes later, Leah Dickman dribbled the ball from the midfield to the back of the net. At the 5:49 mark, Madysen Wallace scores.
With approximately two minutes left in the first half, Dickman gets her second goal of the night and the last goal of the first half to produce a 7-0 score.
During the second half, the Mustangs maintained pressure and only let three balls hit the back of the net.
“We always ask for them to give 110 percent and they always do. Technically, we’re a little behind but I think in terms of attitude and persistency, they go out there. We always say, ‘that water drops go through rocks not because they’re strong but because they’re persistent’ and that’s what my girls do. I’m very proud of them,” said Alonso.
With 18:31 left in regulation, Couture scored her second goal.
After many breakaways, Caitlin Noiles scored at the 13:34 mark with a deep shot from the corner that sailed over Massabesic goalie Rachael Bonia’s head and into the back of the net.
With 1:46 left in the contest, Wallace scored her second goal of the game to produce the final 10-0 score.
“We’re going 0-12. It hasn’t been the best season but we have only four seniors and a whole bunch of freshmen so the future is brighter. We have a lot of Mustang attitude so we’ll be good,” said Alonso.
The margin of triumph would have been much larger if it wasn’t for the strong play of Bonia. The sophomore stopped 16 tough shots throughout the game.
“She’s a sophomore this year and we also have a freshman. They haven’t been playing goalie for a long time. We asked these two girls to step it up and they did. Last week, she had 30 saves. This time, she had (about) 20 saves. That’s all we can ask for,” said Alonso.
Scarborough goalie Nicole Young made five saves in the win.
Massabesic will travel to Noble on Saturday morning as the Mustangs continue to search for their first win.
