Northeast 2, North County 1: Caitlyn Cornwell, a speedy freshman midfielder, notched the icebreaker in the first half and assisted on the second to lift the Eagles.
After a gutting seven-goal loss to South River two days ago, Northeast coach Scott Langlois had hoped his squad would have come out with a little more fire in their bellies. Instead, what he saw read more like compensation for the defeat, “trying to do too much.”
“It was like we played harder, better, had more transitions against a team like South River,” Langlois said. “North County, we’re very comparable, so I’d thought we’d be able to shine with some of this stuff. Just one of those things where they’re gonna play as good as psychology’s working.”
Everything worked for a moment for Cornwell, though, as the freshman loaded up a feed from fellow freshman Makenzie Boyd and stormed the North County net.
