FALMOUTH—Playing without two captains, including its top scoring threat, Cheverus’ girls’ soccer team wasn’t having much luck solving the strong defense of host Falmouth Saturday afternoon.
But after a scoreless first half, the Stags, playing without senior Tholia Hallett and junior speedster Emma Gallant, dug deep and took advantage of a set piece opportunity to propel themselves to a clutch road victory.

PORTLAND—Speed kills and the Cheverus girls’ soccer team has speed in abundance.
While other teams can attempt to neutralize the Stags’ attack, doing so for 80 minutes is downright impossible and Cheverus, after a frustrating first half Wednesday evening, pulled away from host Portland, beating the Bulldogs at Fitzpatrick Stadium for the first time since 2012, 3-0.
