Tough weather at Jack Casagrande Field on Tuesday, November 7th brought along a tough 2-1 loss for the Brien Mcmahon girls soccer team against Cheshire.
The weather in the CIAC first round definitely played a factor in the game. With rain and 40- degree temperatures, the weather really played a factor in the pace of the game. “ The Weather dictated the speed of the ball because the ball goes faster than the player with the rain.” expressed Olivia Leone a senior defender.
The score didn't really represent how the game was played. From a tweet by John Nash local sports writer “At the half 1-1. Miserable conditions.could easily be a 5-2 lead for Mcmahon.” Many people believe the Senators had many scoring chances in the first half to score and didn't take advantage.
The Senators lone goal was by Peyton Mcnamara, a sophomore striker. With 28:30 left in the first half, Mcnamara kicked one in. Cheshires Kaitlyn Loura evened up the score at one with a 35- yard chip shot over the goalkeeper's head with 7:36 left in the half.
The final goal came on a rebound by Cheshires Jill Klem following a 40 Yard Free kick with 4:45 left in overtime. The call that caused the free kick late in overtime would be considered controversial. It was a questionable call and the Brien Mcmahon Student section made sure to let the referee know that. Olivia Leone hinted that the ref helped the outcome of the game “People will disagree it's never the ref's fault but always the team's fault.”
