Sacred Heart soccer ties Newton Country Day School, 1-1

Just over 12 hours removed from one of the most rewarding victories in the team’s history, the Convent of the Sacred Heart girls soccer squad was back at it again.

Friday afternoon, the Tigers dominated Taft School and came away with the 5-1 victory. The win was huge for the program, as it was the first time Sacred Heart has come up victorious against Taft. However there was little time for celebration, as CSH boarded the bus bright and early and headed just outside of Boston, Mass.

As part of the sixth annual Heart Connection, Sacred Heart competed against Newton Country Day School and came away with the 1-1 tie Saturday afternoon.

“The team was good,” CSH head coach Logan Condon said. “We showed a lot of heart and hustled around. We did the best that we could, but I think we were a little gassed after Friday’s emotional victory over Taft. We played well all the way around and I was still very proud of the girls.”

Sophomore Tracey Hagan was able to give the Tigers a 1-0 lead in the 32nd minute  After the defense got the ball through the midfield, Hagan got a foot on the ball and slipped by several defenders around the 18-yard mark. She then got the ball form the corner and just swatted it over the Newton keeper in the left corner of the net.

Newton scored its goal  in the final minute of the first half to knot the game at 1-1. Charlotte Clakre had nine saves for Sacred Heart and the Tigers finished with 10 shots on goal.

Although Sacred Heart didn’t pull through with the victory, Condon couldn’t be happier with his team’s performance.

“Playing well in back-to-back games shows a lot of character for the girls,” Condon said. “The biggest thing I took out of this game was that the team was willing to go 100 percent after we played at such a high level for 80 minutes 12 hours ago. I am very excited about the effort we had against Newton.”
