The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School girls varsity soccer team won 5-0 in its season opener against O’Bryant.

Junior Paige Malowski opened the scoring with an assist from junior Ali Dyke off some great combination passing to beat the O’Bryant keeper. Freshman striker Emily Coogan led the team with two goals. Emily had the second goal assisted by senior co-captain Caroline Jane Walsh, and the fifth goal with a long 20-yard shot, assisted by Ali Dyke. Ella Keene opened the second half with a beautiful shot to the far post, assisted by Caroline Jane Walsh (her second assist for the day). Senior and co-captain Josie Welch put in the fourth goal off a corner kick from Paige Malowski, which deflected by junior Elena Giordano to land at Josie’s feet for the finish.

On Thursday, the girls lost to Sandwich 2-0. “It was a huge challenge for us to defend two of the leading scorers in the league last year, but the girls did remarkably well,” Coach Matt Malowski wrote. “Freshmen Jane Coogan, Elenor Mone, and senior Lily Shaughnessy and junior Samantha Warren had their work cut out for them, but they regrouped by the second half and kept Sandwich to no goals, and only three shots in the second half.”

Paige Malowski had some excellent chances to score, and has a shot to be a league-leading contender for most points scored in a season.

JV tied their match versus Sandwich 1-1 with a last-minute goal from freshman Esme Colon.

Both varsity and JV have a big game on Tuesday at 3 pm versus Nauset, the home opener.
