Chapelgate got its season off on a positive note Friday afternoon by defeating Goretti, 16-11.
Freshman midfielder Abby Heffler made an impressive debut for the Yellowjackets by scoring six goals. Teammates Emma Rufolo and Katherine Cameron added four each.
Taylor Blenkstone countered with six goals for Goretti, the home team.
The first half was back and forth between the two teams, but in the second half Chapelgate started connecting on its passes and working as a team. “We began to be more dominant in possessing the ball as well as scoring,” said Chapelgate coach Colleen Norton.
