The Watertown girls’ soccer team, seeded 26th in the MIAA Division 3 statewide tournament, beat No. 7 Weston, 2-1, on Sunday, Nov. 6, for its second win of the 2022 postseason — a historic achievement as it is believed to be the the first two tourney wins in the team’s history!

Junior Molly Sheehan opened the scoring in the first half with a beautiful shot from outside the box, assisted by senior captain Amanda Cosco.

After Weston tied the game with a late goal in the first half,  Watertown opened the second half with a corner kick goal by junior Lily Lambo, assisted by Cosco.

Watertown’s defense, with the help of the midfielders, were able to keep Weston off the scoreboard the second half with a solid game from junior goalie Sarah Morrissey, who made nine saves.

The next game for the Raiders (6-13-1) will be Wednesday, Nov. 9, at No. 10 Dedham (14-4-1) at 4 p.m.

In the tourney opener, Friday, Nov. 3, the Raiders beat No. 39 Latin Academy (10-5-5) in the preliminary round on goals by Katie Fitzpatrick, Lambo, and Chelsea Fitzgerald.
