The Lynn English girls soccer team is finishing out the season strong, topping Everett, 2-1, on the road Wednesday night.
The Bulldogs are riding a four-game streak without a loss, gaining three ties to go with the victory.
Alexa Zayas scored both goals in the first half to give English a lead. Everett scored with about 15 minutes to play in the second half, but the English defense held steady for the win. Bulldogs goalie Tommi Hill was strong, as usual, and the back line of Grace Gately, Tora Ueland and Bridget Sanchez also played well. Teressa Demirs had a good game at forward.
The win was a step forward for the Bulldogs, who fell, 4-1, to the Crimson Tide in Lynn earlier in the season.
“We played so much better tonight,” English coach Ed McNeil said. “We’re playing everyone tough, I’m very pleased. We got everyone into the game who dressed tonight.”
English (4-10-4) takes on Malden Friday.
Classical 1, Malden 1
Kenzie Shea netted a goal to give the Rams a tie. Now, Classical will need three points in its last two games to make the state tournament.
The Rams got down, 1-0, in the first five minutes of the contest, and then dominated play in the second half to tie up the game.
Classical is back at it Friday at 4 as it hosts Winthrop at Hood Park.
Marblehead 3, Medford 0
Annie Migliore and Gabby Goldswatter each scored a goal in the first half to give the Magicians a 2-0 lead. Lexi Bostley sealed the win with a goal in the second half. Bostley and Gabriella Mark dished assists. Goalies Hannah Garthe and Rachel Saulnier split the shutout win in net.
Saugus 1, Greater Lawrence 1
Juan Oliveira scored the lone goal of the contest for Saugus.
“We didn’t have that cohesion that we usually have offensively in the first half,” Sachems coach Larry Bolduc said. “They basically packed it in defensively and we couldn’t put one in the net to finish it.”
Saugus (8-5-1) will aim for a win this afternoon against Amesbury.
