The Chelsea High girls soccer team dueled Minuteman Regional to a 1-1 standoff Friday, marking the fifth tie in nine games this season for the Lady Red Devils.
Minuteman scored midway through the first half, but the CHS defense held their opponents scoreless the rest of the way. The Lady Red Devils then notched the equalizer near the end of the first half on a goal by Sarah Borouis, her second of the season.
“The girls played a strong game right from the start,” said CHS head coach Jen Gulko. “Gabby Salazar had a fantastic game in the goal and Loren Ramos played a great game at midfield. Many of the new players to the team saw some field time and contributed to the tie.”
Chelsea will host Minuteman for their third meeting this season today (Thursday) and will strive to pull off a win after two ties with the Lady Minutemen.
Chelsea lost a tough game to North Shore Tech on Tuesday with a 7-0 loss.
“The girls had a difficult time finding their rhythm in the first half, but despite the score, they played a much better second half,” noted Gulko. “Elsa Nu§ez played a great game at defense despite an ankle injury and Zuleima Castillo helped strengthen the defense as well. Despite the loss, the girls held their heads high and learned some valuable lessons from the defeat.”
Gulko and her crew now stand at 1-3-5 on the year. After they face Minuteman today, they will take on Mystic Valley next Tuesday.
