A tough first half spelled out the end of the Bourne High girls’ soccer team’s season.

New Bedford Vocational Technical School came out on first in the first 40 minutes, potting five goals before the half and that started them on their way to a lopsided win over the Lady Canalmen, 8-0.

BHS ends its season with a 1-7-1 record. The BHS girls will be back in action sooner than later, though. The true 2021 soccer season will begin for the team with practice in August, with the year’s games beginning in September.

While the game got out of hand, head coach Rui Correia commended the play of his goalkeeper, Jessica LaFlamme. The goalie saw a lot of action and worked hard to keep the team as close as possible. She made 13 saves in the net during the game.

“We were a little bit better in the second half. We had the ball more and got four more shots on target, but weren’t able to get anything to really make their goalie work,” Correia said.

The coach said that his midfield had some strong moments. He commended the play of Sydney Fitzpatrick, Emma Correia and Zoe Ridl. On defense he said that Zoe Ridl had a strong contest.

GNBVT moved on to play Dighton-Rehoboth in the semifinals yesterdayon April 29.
