Wolves girls soccer team ties Essex, teams play again in playoffs

Wolves girls soccer team ties Essex, teams play again in playoffs

 

The North Star Wolves girls soccer team wanted a win last week to boost their playoff positioning but had to settle for a tie.


Now, they have a rematch with the team they played last week in the first game of the WECSSAA “AA” playoffs.


The Wolves travelled to Essex last Wednesday afternoon and settled for a 1-1 draw with the Red Raiders. Emily McGuire got North Star on the scoreboard early in the first half but Essex tied the match before the first half was out. There was no scoring in the second half.


Leanna DiGiovanni and Bianca Goncalves assisted head coach Joe Cilberto in coaching the team last Wednesday and the two assistants were satisfied with how the Wolves played.


“I think they did really well,” said DiGiovanni. “They did good in the first half for sure.”Goncalves believed the Wolves got fatigued in the second half. Ciliberto pointed out they were missing three key defenders in the match against Essex last Wednesday.


“They put on some good pressure,” said DiGiovanni.


The Wolves played well, she added, and the game was as good as it could have been despite settling for a tie. With the three players in the lineup, the result may have been different, DiGiovanni added, but the rest of the team showed their athleticism and played hard.


North Star still had chances and were strong throughout the game, she stated.

The Wolves finished the 2024 WECSSAA regular season with a record of three wins, two losses and one tie. They enter the playoffs with a match today (Wednesday) with a rematch with the Red Raiders at 4 p.m. Unlike last week, this game will see North Star as the home team as it will be played at the Libro Centre in Amherstburg.
