On a cold and windy Sunday afternoon, the Girls Soccer team hosted the Souhegan Sabers in a quarter-final game of the NHIAA Division II Girls Soccer Tournament. The Girls (14-1-2) earned a spot in the Final Four Semifinals with a 1-0 win over Souhegan.  HB persevered over a strong defensive effort by Souhegan, thanks to 10 saves by the surefooted and surehanded Christina Balsamo, and the superb defensive work in front of her. This allowed HB to play to our strengths going forward for most of the game, doing all the right things to create the big moment, which finally came with 9 minutes remaining, when Sophie Warren passed to Rachel Brackett, who had the poise to find that tiny bit of space to finish expertly into the low corner, as necessary to beat Souhegan’s superb diving keeper. This was a signature win, with so many players accepting new roles, and everyone having a big game, working as a complete unit for the win.
