KUA Holds off NMH for 2-1 win

The Wildcats went up by two early in the second half and then held on for a 2-1 win over Northfield Mt-Hermon. KUA’s Bella Parento scored both of the Wildcat goals. Parento's first goal came off a Scout Beaupre long throw. Emily Pariseau flicked one the ball and Parento finished before the NMH keeper could react. On the second goal, Willa McGough ripped a one time shot off a Kyra Russman-Araya direct kick. The rebound fell to Parento where she powered home the game winner. 

NMH nealry pulled to within one soon after the second goal, but Gracie Gamache cleared a header of the Wildcat goal line and then goalie Olivia Brooker deined the rebound.  Brooker finished the game with 8 saves.

Maike Lasser nearly added a much needed insurance goal but the NMH keeper's outstretched hand barely deflected the ball wide. 

Esa Anderso, Molly Davis, and Lina Tommola won key battles in the midfield and backfield and Lucie Turcotte and Kat Maniatis added depth on the wings.
