Tiverton girls win 2-0 in soccer semis: Finals Saturday vs. Cranston East

Posted

A key to success all season long for the Tiverton girls soccer team has been that, if you keep the other team from scoring, wins follow.

That tactic carried the top seed Tigers to a 2-0 win over fifth seeded Narragansett Wednesday afternoon and landed Tiverton in the Division III finals against third seeded Cranston East, 1-0 winners over Classical.

The game will be played at Cranston Stadium at 5 p.m. Saturday.

Mikayla Esteves scored with a few minutes left in the first half and Victoria McGovern scored in the second half. Earning assists were Esteves and Sydney Silvia.

Goaltender Emma Lopes had two saves for Tiverton; Lucia Given had six saves for Narragansett.

Tiverton remains undefeated (17-0-1) for the season and has only allowed two goals.

Cranston East has enjoyed a strong run through the playoffs but many figured that if Tiverton made the finals, their likely opponent would be second seed Classical (15-1 before their semis loss) whose only regular-season defeat came at the hands of Tiverton in a hard-fought 2-1 game.

Tiverton beat Cranston East 4-0 back in the first game of the season (at Cranston East), but Cranston East went on to establish an impressive record of 16-3-1 overall, 15-2-1 in division.
