Girls Soccer Team Goes Far
Katie DeLorey, Veritas Editor-in-Chief
Entering the tournament, the girls’ soccer team felt cautiously optimistic. With a record of 10-5-3, they hoped to make it far into the tournament.
Senior captain Julia Matson believed they were capable of that.
“I think we have a really good chance to go farther than we ever have been before. It’s our last chance to prove ourselves as seniors so we’re going to put our all into every game.”
First up for the girls was a game against Pope John from Hyannis. Traveling the long distance to the Cape did not bother the girls as they came away with a win, getting them a quarterfinal home game against Hull.
This was a close game but Rockland controlled the play most of the way and came up with a 1-0 victory.
Next it was on to Norwell High School in a semi-final match-up with league opponent, Carver.
The teams had traded wins in the regular season and the game was also a close one but Rockland freshman, Grace Oliver scored two second period goals and Rockland found itself in the Division 4 South Sectional Finals for the first time since 1990.
The girl’s season ended with a heartbreaking loss against their biggest rival, East Bridgewater on Sunday, 4-0. They played well and fought hard, but injury unfortunately played a role in the game’s outcome.
Head coach, Gregory Rowe, is pleased with the season overall.
“This group of girls accomplished something not many teams can do. This team, and especially these seniors will forever be legends in our school.”
