Monday’s 3-2 Wasaren League victory over Cambridge was big for Granville girls soccer, and the team, in a number of ways.
As a win, it is one of just a handful in the history of team started in 2005 that has struggled in a tough league. And it comes against a two-time Class C section champion the team has had little success against. Additionally, it was a comeback win.
Head coach Carol Scott said Granville had not scored against Cambridge in the previous 11 losses to the Indians, so it was huge to score three goals and do that on the way to a win.
The come-from-behind victory had Granville stand-out athlete Emily Fuller driving home a direct kick from just outside of the box to complete the win after setting the table for Elle Leach on the previous two scores.
Leach finished with two goals and Fuller a goal and two assists. Granville fell behind by two goals in the first half of play, but owned the second half denting the net three times for the program milestone win.
Senior goalkeeper Amy Baker stood on her head in net to compliment the offensive output and stopped 29 shots versus the 7 stopped by her Cambridge counterpart.
