Gloucester girls soccer faced off against Winthrop in a competitive match. The game came down to the last minutes of the game, the final score was 4-4. This tie sets the Fishermen’s record at 4-9-2 for the season.

Last night the Fishermen celebrated their seniors: Sophia Picano, Annika Nyborg, Kyia Karvelas, Rosalia Ferrara, and Captains Marisa Vincent and Maggie Sperry. 

Gloucester came out with energy and intensity. The Fishermen dominated the ball the entire night. The offense and the mid-field worked exceptionally well together, which led to many great runs and shots on the net. Sophomore Taiya Mano scored the night’s first goal, on a break-away play. Winthrop was quick to return with two goals. Gloucester didn’t give up and continued to push through. With a few minutes left in the half, Mano shot again and with a goalie deflection, senior Annika Nyborg rushed to the net to get the rebound and score. With this goal, the half finished with a score of 2-2. 

Both teams came out with intensity for the second half. The Fishermen kept the ball on the Winthrop side, with the mids and strikers taking any opportunity to shoot. Nyborg had a great pass to the middle, for an excellent goal by Mano. Winthrop then managed to get past the strong Gloucester defense and get another goal to tie the score. Sophomore Skye Ciolino used her speed and exceptional footwork to launch another shot into the back of the net. The Fishermen continued to dominate the game, but unfortunately, Winthrop scored with about a minute left in the game. 

The Fishermen played very well and had a great game. It was hard for the team to not walk away with a win. The Fishermen will rally for the last week of the season. 

Gloucester will be at home next Tuesday at 4:00, against Triton Regional.
