Somers Girls' Soccer Falls to Host Granby

Kathryn LaVallee scored the lone goal for the Spartans.

On Tuesday, the Somers High School girls' soccer team fell 4-1 to host Granby.

Somers scored less than three minutes into the game on a Kathryn LaVallee goal assisted by Kathryn O’Connor and Erin Pfeifer. Granby evened it just five minutes later on a goal by Nicole Paggiuli.

Granby dominated the rest of the first half and got goals from Liad Stearns and Audrey Turcotte to take a 3-1 halftime lead.

Somers played a much stronger second half led by Jaclyn O’Grady and Tori Laires.

O’Grady had the best scoring chance but was denied on a diving save by Granby’s goalie Maddy Dixon. Dixon made nine saves in the game.

Granby got the final goal from Stearns on a blast to the upper right corner to close out the scoring.

Kelsey Sloan and Kelsey Charette were standouts for Somers.

Somers (2-3) travels to Windsor Locks on Friday. Granby (4-0-1) travels to Canton the same day.
