The Martha’s Vineyard varsity girls soccer team powered past Coyle & Cassidy 2-0 on Tuesday afternoon behind a brace from birthday girl Mya Bass. The Vineyarders capitalized on sloppy Warriors marking, and created chances from all over the pitch. Olivia Smith had several long, stellar runs through the Coyle

defense, but could not find the final touch to score. Sophomore Mya Bass, after scoring the first goal early in the game, had several long shots skim just wide of goal. With 11 minutes to go in the first half, she connected with the ball and lofted a beautiful shot past the Coyle keeper to make it 2-0. This is Mya Bass’ first year with the team after moving to the Island over the summer.

The Vineyarders’ next game is at home on Thursday to Bishop Stang at 3 pm at MVRHS.
