With a solid effort at home against Greater New Bedford Voc Tech, the Bourne High School girls’ soccer team posted its second straight win on Wednesday, September 18. After starting the year off 0-4-1, the Lady Canalmen have had themselves a nice little run over the past few days.
Two Alexis Morisset goals powered the Canalmen to their win as they beat the Bears by a 2-0 score.
The sniper picked up her first of the game just 30 seconds into the contest, giving Bourne an early boost. Morisset was set up nicely by Amanda Orciuch and fired it in for the early lead. She then struck again just 21 minutes later to double the advantage. Emma Correira picked up the assist on that goal.
Coach Rui Correia said that he received strong play from several players. Madelyn Muttart, Emma Correira and Sydney Fitzpatrick all drew praise for their efforts in the win.
