Roundup: Oliver Ames girls put up five-spot

The Attleboro girls’ soccer team was up by two goals at home when a swing in momentum sent No. 9 Oliver Ames on a five-goal run and ensured the Tigers their seventh league victory, 5-2, Friday afternoon.

The Bombardiers (1-6-1) scored the only goal of the first half following a corner kick and notched their next one 10 minutes into the second half on a breakaway in transition. Although Oliver Ames (8-1-2) had opportunities, it couldn’t find the back of the net until senior Caroline Connly headed one in off a corner kick.

One goal was all it took for the Tigers to get into their rhythm and back in the game. Five minutes later, senior Kate Holleran also scored on a header, this time off a cross, to tie the game. Freshman Francesca Calabraro netted the winner for her seventh goal of the season.

“Attleboro was playing very well,” said Oliver Ames coach Britt Sellmayer. “We had our chances in the first half, but we took advantage of our chances in the second.”
