TAUNTON, Mass. – Defense has been the strength for Foxboro all season long (with only 11 goals allowed in the first 21 games), helping the Warriors win the Davenport division title and then reach the program’s first sectional final on Saturday afternoon at Taunton’s Tiger Aleixo Stadium.

In the Div. 2 South final, the defense stood tall again, led by seniors Kelly Fisher and Angela Vandenboom, limiting Falmouth to only one corner and one shot over 60 minutes. Thanks to the defensive effort in front of her, junior goalie Kelli McCarthy was not forced to make a single save, as Foxboro pulled out a 2-0 victory to win the program’s first ever Div. 2 South championship.

“We stepped up defensively big time,” said Foxboro coach Melissa Bordieri. “We made adjustments based on the aerials, but we’ve seen aerials all season. Defense has been our strength and it’s kept us in a lot of games.”

While Falmouth did not get a shot on target, the Clippers did have possession in the attacking zone for stretches of the game. The Warriors stayed compact around the circle and kept everything to the outside. In addition to the defenders, Foxboro midfielders Meghan Curran, Catherine Luciano, Jaclyn Brion, and Allison Curran were always on hand to close down potential scoring chances.

“They had a lot of opportunities,” Bordieri said. “No. 7 [Ericka Meissner] is really fast, so we knew if they were to get inside the 25 they would be dangerous. We knew that to close them down in the middle and keep them to the outside would be huge.”

Foxboro was also dangerous in the attack in the first half, creating a number of chances, including four corners.

The first opportunity came in the sixth minute when Sophia DiCenso had two shots a few yards from goal but the first was cleared by Falmouth goalie Molly Duff-Still and the second bounced off the foot of Lily Daly at the back post. It started from a quick transition, Meredith Cronin hitting Emma Daly with an outlet pass to spring the attack.

A few minutes later, another quick break had Foxboro racing forward with Meghan Curran hitting Daly on the run but her shot was kicked off the line by Duff-Still before it could trickle across.

The opening goal felt imminent and in the 16th minute the Warriors made the breakthrough. Fisher’s shot off a corner was blocked but the ball caromed right back to her stick. She sent in a second shot that was settled by DiCenso right in front of goal. The sophomore turned and slid the ball past the goalie for a 1-0 lead.

Falmouth had yet to give up a goal in the playoffs, so Bordieri knew that the first score on Saturday could be decisive. She said, “We had to put a ball in the net as fast as we could. From everything I heard, they’ve scored in the first five minutes of a lot of their games so we knew that was going to be a huge opportunity for us.”

Cronin admitted that there were a few nerves for Foxboro players at the start of the game but that the opening goal calmed everyone down. She said, “It was very good. We knew we had to come out fast.”

In the 25th minute, Foxboro had a chance to double the lead. Caroline Wheatley started the break with a pass to Luciano, who fed the ball to Jenna Stamatov and on to Lily Daly one-on-one with the goalie, but Duff-Still came up with her fourth save of the first half.

With just under two minutes left in the half, Foxboro did get a second. Again it came off a corner and a hit by Fisher from the edge of the circle. Wheatley was stationed in front and cleverly lifted the ball up over the pads of the goalie for a 2-0 advantage that felt like game over to many, but not to Bordieri.

“I want to call it an insurance goal but not in the playoffs,” she said. “I know that Falmouth can score and they’ve got fast forward who have good sticks. I wasn’t super comfortable with two goals until maybe five minutes left.”

In the second half, Foxboro went into a defensive shell, keeping Falmouth to the edges of the attacking zone and it led to very few scoring opportunities for either team. The lone clear chance fell to Daly just four minutes after the break when she tipped a Cronin shot at close range but Falmouth’s Chloe Crago was able to get across and clear it off the line.

With five minutes remaining, Falmouth finally got a decent look at goal, but the shot went off the side of the net. The final minutes ticked off the clock and the Warriors stormed onto the field to celebrate their first title.

“Good, really good,” said Cronin about the feeling at the final whistle. When asked if it felt like the culmination of all the work the team has put in this year, she added, “Kind of, but we’re not done yet. We need to keep pushing through.”

Bordieri is in her 15th year in charge of the program and was clearly savoring the moment of winning a trophy.

“Fifteen years…it’s been a long time coming,” she said. “We’ve come close to doing great things for a long time, so to have this is just an amazing feeling.

“It’s such a team thing for us. This whole season has been ‘All In’ and we really mean it. It’s been everybody on the team who’s had a role, played it well and gotten us here.”

Foxboro (19-2-1) will advance to the Div. 2 state semifinal on Tuesday at Reading High and will face undefeated North champion Watertown, which is riding a national record win streak of 182 games over the past eight seasons.

Foxboro Clips Cohasset in Overtime in D2 South Semis

FOXBORO, Mass. – Foxboro hasn’t conceded the opening goal in a game for a long time. In fact, the last time it happened was back in early September in the team’s last loss before it’s 17-game unbeaten streak.

Even though the Warriors allowed Cohasset to open the scoring very early on Tuesday evening, Foxboro was able to stretch it’s streak to 18 games in a row with a 2-1 overtime win over the Skippers.

Foxboro sophomore Lily Daly scored just under five minutes into the first 7-on-7 overtime to send the Warriors to their first every D2 South Sectional Final. The second-seeded Warriors will take on #13 Falmouth on Saturday at Taunton High School. The time is yet to be announced.

“I can’t even describe [the feeling],” said longtime Warrior head coach Melissa Bordieri. “I knew this would be a battle of a game. I knew they were a tough team and I knew [Cohasset] was fast but wow…they were actually faster than I thought they’d be. I think in the beginning it was kind of hard to adjust to that.”

Cohasset had a burst early in overtime, using its speed on a counter attack but Foxboro goalie Kelli McCarthy stepped up to make a big kick clearance. Down the other end in a three on three chance, sophomore Sophia DiCenso dropped a pass behind the Skippers’ defense, where Daly had slipped in behind.

Daly put the ball on the back of her stick and used a backhand shot to rip the ball into the back of the net for the winner.

“We had a feeling the goalie might go down, we had seen that on film some,” Bordieri said. “It couldn’t have worked out better for us. Sophia got the ball on the right at the top of the circle and sent it in. Lily’s forte is a reverse hit, like a lift. I was watching it and when I saw [the goalie] went down and saw Lily reverse, I just held my breath because I was waiting for that bang [of the ball against the net]. I couldn’t believe it.”

The Skippers came out flying to start the game, using their speed to dictate the pace of the game and put the pressure on the hosts. It took less than four minutes for Cohasset to find the back of the net. With the Warriors down a player due to a restart infringement, Katie Talacci tossed a shot into traffic in front and Olivia Coveney was in the right spot to tap in the opening goal.

“For the first time in two months we were scored on first. In the back of my mind I was thinking it could be a blessing in disguise. We just needed to settle down. Thankfully, they scored so early, there was so much hockey left to play that it kind leveled us a bit.”

From that goal on, the Warriors seemed much more comfortable. Neither side had a penalty corner for the entire fire half but Foxboro’s continued pressure played off in the 24th minute. Ally Curran whipped in a cross from the right side, finding Cat Luciano. Luciano unleashed a shot that was deflected. Emma Daly was in the perfect spot, finding the ball on the goal line and buried it to level the game 1-1.

It took until halfway through the second half for either side to earn a penalty corner but Foxboro finally got one in the 44th minute. Kelly Fisher ended up registering a shot on net but had her bid turned aside. Luciano had a chance five minutes later but the ball just skipped wide.

“They had breakaways but I felt like we had controlled the majority of the game play and definitely between the 25 yard lines,” Bordieri said. “They had some opportunities but they didn’t have a single corner. [Their only shot] was early in the game when we were a little jittery and nervous. I was really proud they didn’t hang their heads or get into a slump [after the Cohasset goal]. They came right back and we made some adjustments at halftime. I knew they could do it, I just kept saying play our game, stop being so reactive and just play our game.”

Foxboro had a man-up opportunity for the final 7:35 of regulation and continued to put pressure on the Skippers. With 6:30 to go, Meredith Cronin had her bid from straight away saved. Three minutes later, Cohasset broke out on a counter attack but Angela VandenBoom put an end to the break with strong stick work.

With just over 90 seconds to play, Emma Daly made a diving attempt to get a shot on goal that resulted in a penalty corner. After a clearance, the Warriors got the ball back into the attacking zone and Jackie Brion launched a ball through the area but no one on Foxboro could get a stick on it.

McCarthy’s kick clearance in overtime came just 30 seconds in, setting the tone for the Warriors. Foxboro had back to back penalty corners with the second eventually leading to the offensive possession that resulted in the game winning goal.

“We’ve practiced seven aside, we’ve practiced strokes in case we go to a stroke off, and we’ve practiced defensive corners too because you’re only allowed three back defensively on a corner,” Bordieri said. “There’s a lot of space in overtime. Lily’s job was to really get to that post and pepper the goalie. Whether she screened her or got a tip in. If Sophia had the shot, she could take it. Our goal was to take shots, we didn’t want to dribble in. Lily snuck in there perfectly and was able to reverse it in.”

Foxboro will take on Falmouth, who upset #4 Bishop Stang in the first round and then knocked out #16 Medway in the semifinals. The time of the game will likely be announced on Wednesday following the results from the D1 semis.
