EPHS Girls Soccer Senior Night

Townies tie Westerly 0-0. Follow playoff action in The Reporter.


East Providence battled Westerly to a 0-0 tie Monday night in a Division II girls soccer clash at Pierce Stadium. The Townies, firmly in the playoff hunt, were hoping for a win to help their playoff seeding in the upcoming state championship tourney. "We're hoping for a win tonight which will give us a better seed (playoff)," said Townie head coach Angelo Pizzi before Monday's game. "Westerly is fighting for a playoff spot and with 6 wins they are a dangerous team."

The Townies came away with a tie in a game in which they spent most of the time on the Westerly side of the field. East Providence controlled the tempo and field position but couldn't make good on several scoring opportunities. The defense played well for both teams and the Townies top net minder Mia Jackson had to turn away just 4 Westerly shots while EP had 10 attempts on net turned away. The Townies with 11 wins, 1 loss and 3 ties so far have slipped from 1st to 3rd place but are still in good shape for the upcoming playoffs. Pilgrim High has remained unbeaten in 1st place atop the division.

In earlier action late last week, the Townies beat back St. Raphael Academy 6-0. In that game Alyssa DeOliveira scored 2 goals and Ashley Dias, Tessa LaRoche, Savanna Feola, & Hailee Manteiga each added a goal. Net minder Jackson shutout the Saints.

Before Monday's game, East Providence seniors and their families were honored and coaches awards were given out.
