The Crimson Tide girls soccer team dropped what started as a very competitive matchup against visiting Gloucester Monday, 3-0.
Halftime came with both sides knotted at zero, but a second half flurry of offense from Gloucester upheld the shutout.
“We were playing hard in the first half and really had multiple opportunities to score, but miscommunications kept us from it,” said Everett coach DeAnn Gallagher. “Unfortunately, after the second goal was scored our intensity just dropped,” said Gallagher, who watched her team pick up their seventh loss of the season.
The Tide (1-7-1) started the year with a 3-1 win over O’Bryant (Dorchester), but since then the team has had a hard time finding the net.
“We still have a lot of work to do, but we are getting better each game,” said Gallagher, who returned as Head Coach after 4 years away from the team. Gallagher coached EHS girls soccer for six years prior to returning this year.
The Everett High School boys soccer team is 6-6-4 on the season and needs two points in its final two games to secure a spot in the MIAA Div. 1 State Tournament. One win or two ties (at least) will get the job done for the Crimson Tide, who have had a very strong season in their second year as a member of the competitive Northeastern Conference. EHS played at Salem on Wednesday night, and it is scheduled to conclude the regular season on Friday at Chelsea. Best of luck to coach Oswaldo Constanza and the Crimson Tide as they make a push for the playoffs.
