ATTLEBORO, Mass. – The game was barely underway and Methuen was on its first attack when out of nowhere the ball ended up behind Attleboro goalie Siany Ortez. Before some of the home fans had settled into the bleachers, the Bombardiers were trailing Thursday afternoon’s Div.1 play-in game at Tozier-Cassidy Field.

Despite falling behind inside of the first minute of the game, Attleboro never let its energy level drop and quickly took control. The Bombardiers scored twice in less than a minute to take the lead after one quarter and added an important insurance goal in the fourth to pull out a come-from-behind 3-1 win and advance to face top seed Walpole.

“We sometimes do start a little slow,” admitted Attleboro coach Jessica Pink. “It takes them a minute to get their feet on the ground and running and going. I thought about calling a timeout, but I didn’t want to waste it so early on. They know that they needed to regroup and they did just that.”

She added, “It’s always hard when you’re sitting, trailing, especially because it’s not like a regular season game where you’re trailing and if you lose it’s a bummer but you have the next one. Coming back from a goal so early is tough, so the fact that they were able to get two at the end of the quarter was such a game-changer.”

The Rangers took the opening face-off and immediately went on the attack down the left wing. Charlotte Putnam battled her way to the end line, created a little bit of space, and rifled a ball across the face of goal. Kylee Henriquez was able to find a pocket of room where she could settle the pass, turn, and fire shot under Ortez.

Attleboro looked stunned, but was able to recover quickly. By the time play resumed, the Bombardiers were on the front foot and hardly let up for the remaining 59 minutes.

Only seconds after getting the ball, Marley Young was on the run down the right wing and forced a save out of Methuen goalie Alexandra Tardugno. Young was a constant menace in the right channel and she split a pair of defenders to get room for another cross, which was tipped wide of the far post by Mackenzie Cooper.

With six minutes left in the half, Attleboro earned its first corner of the game. The Bombardiers turned that opportunity into a tying goal. Young played the corner out to Alyvia Bessette, who played it down the wing to Jordan Mooney. The senior midfielder cut the ball back into Siobhan Landers, who was cutting down the middle, and she smacked it first-time to find the back of the net.

Just 38 seconds later, Attleboro was in front. Landers created the scoring chance with a good run through the midfield. She played a pass out to Bessette on the right wing and she was able to cut the ball back to Young in the middle for a transition goal that turned out to be the winner.

“That goal and our second one is our tournament team,” said Pink. “I know that’s how we’re capable of playing. I knew once they got there, it would be good and the momentum really did shift. We were really connecting and the girls made it happen.”

Attleboro was flying and nearly scored seconds before the end of the quarter. Landers played the ball to the top of the crease, but Mooney smacked it through a crowd with no touch. Just a minute into the second, Young again managed to slip through a crowd but her shot went off the side of the net.

Midway through the quarter, Landers had a bast from straight away but Tardugno kicked it aside. Bessette and Young pressed from the top, forcing a turnover but again the Methuen goalie was equal to it.

The Attleboro defense of Kelsey Hodson, Meghan Ferreira, Victoria Westwater, and Paige Parenteau was largely untroubled, cutting out Methuen attacks well before they got close to Ortez, but in the closing two minutes of the half the Rangers finally got a look at goal. Vanessa Fritschy had a go from high on the right side that went wide and Ortez was quick to get down and block a chance at the post off a corner. It was one of only two saves the Attleboro goalie was called on to make.

On the other end of the field, Tardugno was doing everything in her power to keep the Rangers in the game. She made six of her 15 saves in the third quarter alone. Landers set up Young for a shot from a good angle on the right that was kicked away, then Mooney found Young in space in front but Tardugno stopped that and the rebound effort from Stella Krawiec.

With no time on the clock, Landers nearly converted another corner only to have the goalie rob her from close range again.

“Methuen’s goalie is phenomenal,” said Pink. “We probably had 20 shots in the third and fourth quarters and she only let one in. It was nice to see that we were able to capitalize and get up there over and over again.”

Attleboro continued to press for the goal that would seal the win. The Bombardiers had six corners in the fourth (and held a 12-4 advantage for the game). Mooney and Bessette played a nice one-two off one of the corners, which opened up a shot for Young only for Tardugno to make the save.

Just when it looked like the Methuen goalie might just allow her team to find its way back into the match, Attleboro finally found a third. Landers played it to Mooney, who fired it into the mix in front and Young was in the right place to get the necessary tip and find the back of the net.

So, now Attleboro (8-11) moves into the Round of 32 and its reward is a trip to top seed Walpole, which reached the state final a year ago. While it is obviously a daunting task, Attleboro is excited about the challenge.

“Our league has been so tough and we’ve opportunities to really challenge ourselves,” Pink explained. “They want to play the best because at the end of the day it’s going to make them better and I think that’s their mindset going into it. We’re going to put it all on the line.”

ATTLEBORO, Mass. – It has been a difficult stretch of the season for North Attleboro. After a four-game win streak in which the Rocketeers didn’t allow a goal, North entered Thursday night’s rivalry game at Tozier-Cassidy Field carrying a four-game losing streak in which they been scored on 18 times.

After three quarters against Attleboro, things hardly seemed to be turning around.

This time, rather than allow the game to get away from them, the Rocketeers rallied. Emily Burnham and Caroline Folan each scored in the opening three minutes of the fourth, powering North to a 2-1 victory that brings North’s record back to .500 on the season.

“I was very proud of them for coming back,” said North coach Karen Folan. “They were getting a little chippy about the calls and I said, just play the whistle, play your game. The past few games, it was 0-0 or 1-0 at half but they get up 2-0 and our sails are deflated and they’ve let them rack up goals, but not today.”

Attleboro got off to a perfect start in front of its home crowd. The Bombardiers stormed out of the gates and forced a series of corners in the opening few minutes. Three minutes into the game, Attleboro took advantage of the pressure. Alyvia Bessette played the pass to the top of the circle and Siobhan Landers rifled a shot through the crowd in front and past North goalie Eman Farid (five saves).

“Siobhan just had a beautiful shot. It was a great goal to start the game,” said Attleboro coach Jessica Pink. “It was the best start that you could ask for as a coach and the momentum that it gave us for those first three quarters was exactly what they needed.”

North tried to respond midway through the half but Folan’s shot didn’t get the touch it needed in front and the goal didn’t count. While the visitors had several spells of possession, it was Attleboro that created the best chances in the opening 15 minutes.

Marley Young nearly hit the Rocketeers in transition but her shot from the right skidded across the face of goal. A minute later, Stella Krawiec attacked down the opposite flank and forced Farid into a kick save.

In the closing seconds of the first, Attleboro had a great chance to double the lead. Landers played a pass out to the right wing to get Nora Desrosiers into the attack. Her cross into the middle, with both Young and Krawiec lurking, was deflected on net but kicked aside by Farid.

Folan said, “At the beginning, this is a big game, it’s a big rivalry, but at the same time there’s a lot of friendships between the two teams. They play club together, so I think we were a little too excited at the beginning, maybe a little rattled when they scored.”

After a first period spent largely on its heels, North had a good response at the start of the second, forcing an early corner. Julia Puccio stepped to her backhand and ripped a shot that was blocked out to Kelsey Thompson, who was able to put her shot on goal and force a save out of Attleboro goalie Siany Ortez (five saves).

Midway through the second, North almost tied it off another corner chance. Again it was Puccio with the first try but Attleboro’s defense got a block in. The rebound fell to Kelsey Hodson and her shot was also deflected. The third try fell to Folan from point-blank range, but Ortez got down quickly and made the stop.

Attleboro would have one good opportunity in the second. Landers again was the spark-plug in the midfield, spraying a pass out to Desrosiers on the right. The sophomore went for goal and was denied by Farid. The rebound bounced to Bailey Ellis on the far side, but Farid got across and blocked her shot as well.

Things settled down in the third quarter, as Attleboro started to tighten up defensively and try to prevent a transition that could lead to the tying goal. Landers had one chance after a good pick out from Young, but the shot was wide. Puccio had North’s best chance of the quarter, firing a shot wide from the top of the circle.

North came storming out of the blocks in the fourth quarter and Attleboro seemed to be struggling to match the energy of the visitors.

Pink explained, “They played the full 60 minutes and I just think they ran out of steam, where [North] had a lot of girls to circulate through, and I think at the end that made a huge difference.”

On the third in a series of rapid-fire corners, and on their 13th corner of the night, the Rocketeers leveled the score. Instead of playing it out to Puccio, North found Burnham on the left wing and she had enough time to line up a shot through the crowd in front of goal.

“That was beautiful,” Folan said of Burnham’s equalizer. “Yesterday we practiced some different corners. We don’t usually take it on that side, but our corners weren’t working so well.” Reflecting on one goal on 15 corners on Thursday, she added with a chuckle, “I don’t know that those corners worked all that well today either.”

North got a boost of energy from the goal and almost immediately found the back of the net again. Puccio slid a pass into Folan, but Ortez was able to keep it out. A minute later, just three minutes into the quarter, the Rocketeers forced a turnover in the midfield and Puccio was able to set up Folan for a quick second goal that turned out to be the winner.

Momentum was with the visitors and they looked to press their advantage. Puccio fired a backhand shot wide and Francesca Spencer had a nice run to set up Folan right in front but again the Attleboro goalie denied the chance. Thompson also set up Folan in the middle and Ortez was equal to it.

Attleboro started to win back territory in the closing two minutes, but was unable to create a significant chance to test Farid, as North got back in the win column at the start of a busy month.

“In the second half of the fourth quarter, they tried to regroup and you could tell they were really trying to push that momentum,” Pink said. “They were trying, but just couldn’t capitalize on the net. You could see they wanted it really bad at the end.”

North Attleboro (5-5-1) will look to keep things rolling with a trip to Sharon on Tuesday. Attleboro (4-8-0) will enter its final six games of the regular season with a visit to Canton.
