Astros kick their way to provin­cials

Girls’ team un­de­feated at re­gional play­downs; Sen­tinels win boys’ crown

The Compass - - SPORTS -

The As­cen­sion Col­le­giate Astros posted an un­blem­ished record at the re­gional girls’ soc­cer cham­pi­onships in Car­bon­ear on Satur­day, Oct. 2, and will look to con­tinue that suc­cess at the provin­cials this week­end in Gan­der.

The Astros dou­bled their archri­val, the Car­bon­ear Col­le­giate Sen­tinels, 4-2 in the cham­pi­onship game. The Sen­tinels’ Re­becca Hearn made some noise by scor­ing two goals late in the match, but the game was outof-hand by that time, and the Astros held on for the win.

The Astros gave up just three goals in four games at the re­gion­als — two of which came off Hearn’s foot — while scor­ing 14 on the op­po­si­tion, which also in­cluded Cres­cent Col­le­giate of Blake­town and Laval High of Pla­cen­tia.

Goal scor­ers for the Astros in­cluded the fol­low­ing: Kelsey Smith, An­drea Neil, Kathryn Mercer, Shara Hod­der, Terri De­laney, Carly Nor­man and Emily Crum­mey.

Mean­while, the Sen­tinels’ boys’ team had bet­ter luck, de­feat­ing Laval2-0 on Oct. 7 to take the boys’ re­gional ti­tle and win a spot at the provin­cials.
