Souhegan scores twice in second half to beat Milford

AMHERST – Tuesday’s high school soccer match had the intensity of a playoff match and enough fog to fill a haunted house. Was it late October already? No, just a regular-season game between the Milford and Souhegan girls soccer teams. Both teams brought energy from the start, and a loud and engaged student section from each school helped keep it that way throughout. The score was tied 1-1 at halftime, when a thick fog rolled in, covering the field for most of the second half, when the Sabers scored twice to take a 3-1 victory over the Spartans. Hannah Chick had a goal and two assists for Souhegan (4-2 in Division II) while Emma Estabrook added a goal and an assist as the Sabers won their second straight. Milford (3-2) got a goal from Alyza Sayward and Casey Phelps stopped 19 shots, as the loss snapped the Spartans three-game win streak. “I thought they brought a lot of intensity and desire and they fought really hard,” Souhegan coach Amy Sparks said. “It’s a big rivalry, always is, and both teams really wanted it, both teams fought hard.” Milford coach Russ Matthews was also pleased with the way the Spartans started the game, and stressed to the players after how important it was to do that every time out. “I thought we matched their intensity,” he said.
