(Oct. 25, 2012) The girls’ varsity soccer team breezed through two Cape & Islands League opponents this week, and in between played its most exciting game of the season, a 0-0 tie against Martha’s Vineyard Sunday at home.
The Whalers (9-5-1 overall, 9-0 C&I) are scheduled to play their final game of the season against Pope John Paul II today. The Whalers defeated the Lions 9-1 at the beginning of the season, and a win or a tie will lock up sole possession of the league title. Nantucket’s seeding in the Div. 3 South sectional tournament will be announced Wednesday, with preliminary and first-round games scheduled to start next Friday.
On Monday, the Whalers dispatched Cape Tech 8-1 with half the starters resting after the intense game against the Vineyard the day before. Stepping up to carry the load were Mia Silverio, Frances Steadman and Julia Newman, head coach Jorge Rojas said.
