Franklin Opens With Shutout Win Over North Attleboro

FRANKLIN, Mass. – Franklin head coach Tom Geysen admitted he had concerns about his defense coming into the season, especially after graduating two Hockomock all stars.

But in its first test of the season, and a tough one at that, the Panthers passed with flying colors, earning a 3-0 shutout over visiting North Attleboro.

Junior Grace Gallo anchored the center of the defense with senior Molly O’Reilly and junior Madison Stewart on the outside. While North was able to register 10 shots, only two were true tests for keeper Cat Robbins.

“It was a good win, we’re young as far as experience goes and I thought we would be a be a little thin in certain areas but some kids stepped up a bit today that I wasn’t really anticipating,” Geysen said.

“Defense was one of my concerns coming in. We graduated two all-league starters we had to replace. We changed our formation a little bit, and I was a little concerned about it during the preseason. But you have to let it ride and get used to it. The back line bent but they didn’t break.”

It didn’t take long for Franklin to try and use its speed to get in behind North Attleboro’s back line. Just five minutes in, after a long ball was spilled by North’s keeper, Miranda Smith jumped on the loose ball in the area but had her bid slide wide at the far post.

North registered its first chance in the 16th minute when a ball put into the area fell to Big Red senior Aine Mendonca, but her low shot was saved comfortably by Robbins at the near post.

The Panthers broke open the scoring less than five minutes later. Senior Molly Duncan gained possession in the midfield, turned forward and played a perfect diagonal through ball to Smith. Smith faked with her right, cutting past a defender, carried to goal alone and tucked her shot in at the near post to make it 1-0.

North Attleboro nearly had an immediate response, forcing Robbins into one of her two big saves in the 21st minute. The Rocketeers quickly moved the ball up field before junior Ashlyn Gaulin unleashed a wicked shot from 25 yards out, but Robbins made a leaping save and tipped the ball over the bar.

“That’s what you expect from Cat,” Geysen said. “She might not be the greatest athlete in the world but nobody is tougher than her, nobody works harder than her and she anticipates really well.

North had one more serious chance just before the halftime break when Mendonca laid a pass off for senior Felicity Monfils but her strike from just outside the area went just over the bar.

The Rocketeers carried that momentum into the second half and looked like they found the equalizer less than a minute in. Mendonca served a ball to the far post and Haley Guertin calmly finished her shot from close range, but the ref disallowed the goal, whistling for a foul off the ball.

“I’ll be the last person to use an excuse, but to have that goal called back changed things,” said North Attleboro head coach Bill Wallace. “I felt like we came out and were playing really well to start the second half. And then they scored five minutes later so it hurt.

“We’re working through some kinks right now. I thought we’d be further along offensively than we are. But Franklin always throws one of those defenses at you where you have to work your butt off to get anything. It’s that one extra pass or one shot instead of a pass. The good news is that we have a great group of seniors and they’ll pick each other up. It proves how tough this league is.”

But seven minutes after North’s goal was waved off, Franklin doubled its lead. The Panthers took advantage of a quick throw with Smith springing Duncan in behind the defense. North’s goalie came charging out but Duncan calmly carried around her and finished into the back of the net to make it 2-0.

“We have some speed,” Geysen said. “We have to work on our touch, and that’s one of the reasons we don’t have the possession yet because our first touch isn’t where it needs to be. But with the speed and the two kids in the middle, [Molly] Duncan and Carly Alston, they can really thread the ball. Carly looked good the last couple of days.”

The Panthers put the finishing touches on the win in the 69th minute. Junior Hailey Toolin laid a perfectly weighted pass in the area to sophomore Anna Balkus and she placed her shot just inside the post to make it 3-0.

North Attleboro had one final chance with just over three minutes remaining when Gaulin turned and ripped a left footed strike from inside the area but Robbins made the diving stop at the near post to preserve the shutout.

North Shuts Out Attleboro and Wins the Blue-Red Cup

NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. – Last year, Attleboro was able to hold off the Rocketeers with a strong defensive performance and claimed the annual Blue-Red Cup by a single goal. On Saturday afternoon at William T. Kelly Field, North Attleboro came out strong right from the opening kick-off intent on reclaiming the trophy and avoiding the upset.

Click here for a photo gallery from this game.

Emily Schromm scored early in the first half to break the deadlock, Haley Guertin had a pair of assists and sisters Ashlyn and Emma Gaulin each had goals, as North rolled to a 4-0 victory to close out the regular season.

“We took care of business,” said North coach Bill Wallace, who took over the team when Glenn Pasquel resigned midway through the season. “I told the kids before we played Foxboro that these games count just as much as the first game of the year, as league title games. It’s as important to get as many points as we can and we’ll worry about everyone else later.”

In both last year’s cup game and the first meeting between these two teams two weeks ago, Attleboro stymied the Rocketeers early, but the Bombardiers could not manage that this time around.

Guertin, a University of Rhode Island-commit, flipped a ball over the top of the Attleboro defense towards Schromm, who was making a run from midfield. Attleboro keeper Madison Brown hesitated, struggling to read the ball off the uneven Kelly Field pitch, and that slight delay allowed Schromm the time to run onto it and line up a shot through the five-hole to make it 1-0.

“Last time we played them, their goalie stood on her head and we didn’t score until about 20 minutes left,” said Wallace. “As the game goes on and you start to feel the pressure, the net gets smaller and smaller. So, it was important [to score early].”

North was relentless in the midfield with Britta Anderson, Grace McGoldrick, and Juliana Direnzo taking turns to control the middle of the pitch, as Wallace subbed regularly and at times sent in 10 players at a time.

Schromm had a second chance saved by Brown at the near post later in the first half and Guertin had a try from the edge of the box but it was easy for the keeper. The lone Attleboro chance was a long shot from Hannah Meier that Emma Noreck caught after a bounce.

There was nothing easy about the second goal however. Guertin, under pressure from Attleboro defender Jordyn Forte, rolled the ball out to the right for Emma Gaulin to run onto and the sophomore rocketed a shot into the top corner to double the North lead.

“The first half we were our own worst enemy,” said Attleboro coach Steve Santos. “My goalie hesitated on the first one and the second one the halfback didn’t follow her mark in and she finished it nicely and made us pay for it.”

With the confidence of a two-goal cushion, North started the second half brightly. Guertin had an early chance that went just wide of the far post and just out of the reach of Gaulin sliding in at the far post.

The best chance for Attleboro came shortly after when Kara Thornton turned on the edge of the North box and had a shot but it was straight at the keeper. Aine Mendonca nearly curled in a free kick for North’s third but moments later the Rocketeers added another and put the game away.

The chance came from the wings with Felicity Monfils making the run from outside to in behind the left back and she got to a through ball Haley Ferrin and just managed to get a toe on it before Brown could smother it. The ball rolled to Ashlyn Gaulin and she tapped it into the empty net.

Wallace said, “We tried to use the width today. Some stuff we saw on film was that we had more success going wide and crossing through. Part of that is you get away from [Forte] in the middle.”

Santos was urging his team to push forward more at halftime, but the Bombardiers struggled to get into the attack. He explained, “We haven’t had a good offensive year and sometimes when a team scores early, 2-0 at halftime is like being down 4-0. They don’t want to make a mistake and give up that third goal and we get trapped back here and teams come at us even more.”

North wrapped up the scoring in the closing minutes when Leah Jette capped a solid all-around game by getting free for a breakaway and cooly finishing past Brown.

While North celebrated with the Blue-Red Cup and gets ready for the state tournament pairings this week, Santos reflected on the season gone by for the Bombardiers (2-15-1).

He said, “My captains (Rebekah Entwistle and Chloe Vieira) are the heart and soul of this team. They’ve never quit and they’ve played through some injuries and adversity and my whole team fed off of them and their no-quit attitude.”

North Attleboro(13-3-2), which won the program’s first ever league title in its first season in the Davenport division, will await the pairings for the Div. 1 South tournament.

Oliver Ames Snaps Skid Against North Attleboro

NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. – There was no hiding or denying it: Oliver Ames girls’ soccer has had September 16th circled on its schedule for some time.

After the Tigers enjoyed decade of success against North Attleboro, the Rocketeers have been on the winning end of games in recent history. Big Red picked up a 3-0 win back in 2014 and then 2-1 in the regular season last year. Most notably, North Attleboro scored an upset with a 3-2 win at Muscato Stadium in the MIAA D1 South tournament last season.

Oliver Ames got back on the winning side of the rivalry on Friday afternoon, scoring an early goal in the first and tacking on two more in the second for a 3-0 win at Kelly Field on the campus of North Attleboro High School.

“Yeah, of course it was [circled],” OA head coach Britt Sellmayer said. “For our seniors, this is their first win against [North]. There were some interesting calls today. We scored an honest one early and then we didn’t give up any goals. We still have a ways to go, we still need to be calmer on the ball. But maybe it was our turn, we’ve had some bad luck here too but that’s part of the game.”

After a back and forth opening, Oliver Ames picked up the key first goal just ahead of the 10 minute mark. Sophomore Zoe Chazan sent a free kick in from just beyond midfield, which took a deflection off the head of a North Attleboro player. Senior Lauren Wright ended up with the ball at her feet and offered an off-balance shot as she was falling. The ball hit the grass, bounced off the inside of the post and in, handing OA an ideal 1-0 start.

“It was huge, it kind of gives you an ease, now you’re up a goal,” Sellmayer said.

Neither side had a true scoring chance for the final half hour of the first half. OA had a chance on a scramble in the 20th minute when a cross was bobbled but Rachel LaBonte came away with a clearance for North. Kiana Lozzi nearly had a chance in the 30th minute but Big Red once again came up with a stop.

North’s best chance came on a corner kick in the final minutes of the first half. Aine Mendonca‘s in-swinger clanked off the near post and stayed out.

Oliver Ames added a pair of goals in the second half, but not without some controversy.

Both sides had chances in the opening minutes. North’s Kayla Pasquel had a free kick go over the bar from a tough angle and then Wright had a bid on the other end, taking a flick from Francesca Calabraro and dribbling around the keeper, but her tough angle shot was high as well.

Just over 10 minutes into the second half, it looked as though North Attleboro had drawn a foul inside its own area to get a free kick out. Instead, play continued for a second and a collision resulted in a penalty kick for Oliver Ames. Julia Roy made no doubt about the finish though, going low to the right to double OA’s lead.

“Julia Roy’s calm, cool and collected and she’s scored some big goals for us,” Sellmayer said. “Lauren just has a gear, she’s tiny, but she has a gear that other people don’t have so she can get around the corner. That’s who we were working for in the second half.”

The Rocketeers had a pair of chances just before the midway mark of the second half. Felicity Monfils served in a pair of crosses from the right wing, the first met by Pasquel but right into the waiting arms of OA goalie Regan Benton. The second bounced in the area but was cleared by the Tigers.

There was some more confusion 10 minutes later, as Chazan played a ball over the top as Oliver Ames’ strikers were jogging back as North’s defense stepped up. Wright ran onto the ball and the referee elected to not call offside. Wright charged in alone and calmly finished to make it 3-0.

“I always preach that a great soccer game is going to be 2-1. You’re going to give up a goal, you’re human you make mistakes or they hit a brilliant shot and you tip your cap. We didn’t though, which was nice. Regan was solid in net, she didn’t have to do anything outstanding but she did everything she had to do. Then our back four, they had a solid game today. I mean, [North Attleboro’s Haley Guertin] is probably the top striker in the league. I thought we played better as the game went along. We had those first game nerves with North Attleboro – they are a very good team.”

North Attleboro head coach Glenn Pasquel was clear in how he felt the calls went.

“We got robbed, that’s what it comes down it, we just got robbed,” Pasquel said. “When Britt comes over and tells me you got two goals robbed out of you, that PK and then the offsides. He’s a man of few words, he’s a good guy but to come over and tell me that, it’s crazy. But we just have to do what we’re supposed to do, we’re supposed to put the ball in the back of the net and today we just couldn’t do it. [OA] is a good team, they were the team we were looking out for. We absolutely want to see them again.”

Oliver Ames girls soccer (5-0, 4-0) has a big week ahead with Franklin coming to Easton on Tuesday and then a visit from an upstart King Philip squad scheduled for Friday. North Attleboro (2-1, 2-1) hosts Canton on Tuesday in a key Davenport matchup before welcoming King Philip to town for a non-league contest.
