Vineyard 0, Dennis-Yarmouth 0

The Vineyarders and Dolphins shared the points on Tuesday afternoon at Dan McCarthy Field in Oak Bluffs.

Both teams had their chances to win the match, especially in the second half. MV’s Rose Engler skimmed a bending 20-yard shot off the top right corner of the crossbar with less than 5 minutes remaining and nearly scored 20 minutes earlier with a shot across the crease that came within inches of crossing the goalline inside the left post. The Vineyarders put 10 shots on goal during the match.

“We had possession most of the second half and I’m happy with that,” Vineyard varsity assistant coach Nicole Pearson said. “We kept things positive today, so that’s good.”

Vineyard keeper Ruby Reimann made two stops at close range in the second half and finished with 14 saves on the day. “A clean sheet from a freshman keeper in varsity, I can’t ask for more than that,” said Vineyard goalkeeping coach Ryan White.
