Madawaska girls soccer team opens new season
MADAWASKA, Maine — The Madawaska Owls girls soccer team was defeated by Fort Kent, 8-0, in their first game of the season Sept. 22.
The night was also senior night for Madawaska where the three seniors presented their parents with a flower. Emma Pelletier, Morgan Corriveau and Nevaeh McQuarrie all were called onto the field with their parents to honor the start of their senior year.
Madawaska had a solid start defensively, according to the Owls coach, Tom Gerard.
“Madawaska held Fort Kent scoreless for the first 33 minutes behind superb goal keeping by Mallory Corriveau, playing her first game as the girls keeper, and with the help of my young defenders,” Gerard said.
Fort Kent scored three goals in the first half and added five more in the second for the win.
“Madawaska is a young team that will improve as the season progresses and Fort Kent has been the valley powerhouse for the last few years and continues to be a well coached and veteran team,” Gerard said.
