Anna Maria Ferrante’s game-winning goal with less than 30 seconds to play in the game sealed Lynnfield’s victory.
Trailing 1-0 with nine minutes left, Ashley Mitchell scored off a free kick from the corner, knocking it through the Clippers’ keeper on the near post to tie the game, 1-1.  Ferrante blasted a shot from just outside the box to beat the keeper, top shelf just under the crossbar.
“She turned, then just ripped a shot past their keeper,” said Lynnfield coach Mark Vermont. “It was a great battle and it feels really great to finally get a win like this against them. We switched things up a little and one of the keys was Lauren Mitchell did a fantastic job man-marking their top scorer, Cricket Good, so once that took her out of the game, that was the difference.
