Against the odds, the team completes a Cinderella season.
Is it a Hat Trick or a Trifecta? Whatever you call it, the East Greenwich Girls U10 Indoor Soccer team swept all the divisions of indoor soccer this year. They won the C, B and the open-division championships Salagadoola mechicka boola bibbidi-bobbidi-boo. Put 'em together and what have you got? An East Greenwich soccer Cinderella story. What these girls lacked in ranking going into this indoor soccer season, they made up for in heart. Mike Zarrella and Mark Fay’s U10 girls were ranked low in the C division when they began the winter soccer season at Teamworks in the fall. They took the C division, coming in first place, with an undefeated record. They moved up to the B division for the second winter season. They were invited to play in …

Despite the home field advantage, the Avengers couldn’t get it started.
In the end, Smithfield just wanted it more, beating East Greenwich 2-0 in the Girls Soccer D-1 semifinal game at Carcieri Field Wednesday night. Smithfield played the best game of their season - with senior Courtney Maguire scoring twice - while EG couldn’t find their footing. The fog that hovered over the field in the first half and descended on the field in the second half seemed to seep into the Avengers’ play, causing them to miss passes, play back, and shoot wide. For EG senior and co-captain Karen Lockhart, the loss was bitter. She and others on the team had hoped to be able to face La Salle in the final. “It stings a lot because that was our goal for the past four years - to beat [La Salle],” she said. “It’s sad that it won’t …

Tough game ends in 0-0 tie for girls soccer team.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN – If a tie is like kissing your sister, then yesterday’s South Kingstown – East Greenwich girls soccer game was like stealing your sister’s lunch money. After 80 minutes of chippy, hard-nosed soccer, the Rebels and Avengers both left the field unhappy after a 0-0 draw on a windy day at Curtis Corner Middle School. It was the final regular season game for both teams. “I thought we had our chances and our opportunities,” South Kingstown coach Jim Kelly said. “They’re a good team, and we played them evenly.” Chances were few and far between for both teams, as action was tied up in the midfield for most of the afternoon. The best chance of the game came in the 75th minute when the Rebels’ Samantha LeDonne outran two Avenger …

Despite the win, many scoring opportunities are missed.
Sometimes winning isn't enough. On Thursday afternoon, the EGHS girls soccer team dominated the game against Warwick Vets and won the game by a score of 3-0, but according to team members and the coach, EG's score should have been higher. "We're having trouble finishing. We had the ball on their half of the field more than three-quarters of the game. We had numerous chances," said senior co-captain Megan Greineder. "I think we're playing well," said Karen Lockhart, also senior and co-captain. "What we need to do now is put the ball in the back of the net. We had so many opportunities today. We just didn't finish." Lockhart earned an assist early on, when sophomore Marissa Light scored 7 minutes in. The other two goals didn't come until …
