MERIDEN >> Northwest Catholic dominated most of the Class M girls soccer championship with pinpoint passes in its 2-0 win over Enfield at Meriden Saturday morning.
Misses and great work by Enfield goalkeeper Makenzie Martin kept the Lions off the scoreboard until nine minutes before the half.
Junior Hannah Borrowiec Found Rachel Elliott cutting toward the goal. Elliott chipped it in.
Seventeen minutes into the second half, the Lions struck again as senior Bailey Julian worked her way to the goal.
“They just did a great job today,” NWC coach Todd Sadler said. “We could have had a few more goals but I’m happy.
“Coach Todd really helped us with our passing,” said Borrowiec. “It’s always about possession. Then we focus on combining.”
“Every time we get it, our objective is to keep it down,” Julian said.
“We knew we weren’t just playing kickball,” Elliott said.
Disappointed Saturday, Enfield nevertrheless made history for the school.
“No Enfield girls soccer team has ever been past the first round,” said Coach Kate Battista.”This run is something to be proud of.”
The Raiders finish 14-3-4.
Northwest Catholic ends 19-1-1.
