Early, late goals boost Eagles past SABIS for second victory

SPRINGFIELD — For most of the Mt. Everett girls’ soccer team’s game at SABIS Saturday afternoon, the Eagles were on the defensive. But all it took was a couple strokes of good luck to send them back on the Mass Pike with their second win of the 2019 season.

Goals in the third and 74th minutes lifted Mt. Everett to a 2-1 win over the SABIS Bulldogs in Springfield, ending the team’s September on a high note.

Mt. Everett has had trouble beginning games this season, one of the reasons for its lackluster record thus far. But some good fortune fell on the Eagles against the Bulldogs.

Emily Steuernagle got the scoring started early for the Eagles, getting a lucky bounce off of SABIS goalkeeper Bailey Barloy and into the net to give the Eagles the earliest advantage they have had to date.

With a lead and still 77 minutes to play, it was time for goalkeeper Emma Goewey to stand tall in net, as she’s done all season. Goewey stopped 12 shots from the Bulldogs, as SABIS turned up the offensive pressure as soon as the Bulldogs fell behind on the scoreboard.
