Pelham 5, Merrimack Valley 1

Key players: Merrimack Valley – Molly McLaughlin (G), Caitlyn Fortier, Taylor Bailey, Abby Forbes, Lauren McLaughlin

Highlights: Pelham scored twice in the opening five minutes and maintained offensive pressure throughout the game. The Pythons were awarded seven offensive corners, but the Pride kept six of those chances out of the back of the cage.

Coach’s quote: “We started off very slow today and dug ourselves into a hole that we were unable to get out of. Anytime you let an aggressive team like Pelham score two goals to open up the first five minutes, it is going to be difficult to make up for. The girls never gave up, but we are going to have to figure out how to close our defensive gaps and put away rebounds in the circle in order to compete for wins.” – Merrimack Valley’s Jen Colgan

Records: Pelham1-0; Merrimack Valley 1-2
