Roundup: Wahconah girls soccer team holds off Weston in 2-1 win

DALTON — Noelle Furlong scored just over a minute into the second half to help the Wahconah girls soccer team to a 2-1 win over Weston on Saturday afternoon.

Allison Washburn gave the Warriors (5-5-3) the lead in the first half, scoring on a corner from Sarah Houle.

To start the second, Furlong converted on a pass from Sadie Anderson to put the Warriors up two. That goal, plus the work of Michaella Moncecchi in goal proved vital in getting the result.

Weston's Carenna Groff scored with just over four minutes to play in the second half, and according to Wahconah coach Meg Smith, the work of Moncecchi in goal was vital.

"We came out very strong in the first half. I was very proud of them," Smith said. "We were doing some great things. Then we fell apart for a little bit at the end and they were able to dominate. Michaella came up big today, she had a ton of big, big saves."
