In a hard fought battle, the KUA girls soccer team won 1-0 against Holderness. In the first half, Emily Pariseau set up Kyra Russman-Araya for the game winner, a bar down drive from the 18. Both teams had their fair share of chances, especially in the final 15 minutes. KUA’s Sophie Bridge stopped a breakaway and, at the other end, Sasha Lawton and Gracie Gamache just missed their chances inside the 6 yard box. Holderness pushed up two outside attackers the entire game, keeping the backline busy and on their heels. Hannah Asbury, Molly Davis, Scout Beaupre, and Lina Tommola spent a good deal of the day chasing down the speedy Holderness forwards. it was a well earned shutout and a good overall team victory.
