Yarmouth rides second half surge to semifinal win over Cape

YARMOUTH—The top seed got a challenge, but responded like the champion it hopes to become.

Saturday afternoon, in a Class B South semifinal, Yarmouth’s girls’ soccer team had to deal with the cold, rain and a spirited effort from underdog No. 4 Cape Elizabeth, but the Clippers met the challenge and earned their first trip to the regional final in nine seasons.

The Clippers controlled play most of the first half, dodged a bullet when Capers sophomore Prezli Piscopo sent a shot off the post, then went ahead, 1-0, in the 28th minute, when senior Katie Clemmer finished a feed from sophomore Olivia Feeley.

Yarmouth advances to regional final
The Clippers defeat Cape Elizabeth, 3-1, in a Class B South semifinal.

... “Katie does a lot of special things with the ball. I think anyone would be happy to have one player like that, and I’ve got two of them,” said Yarmouth Coach Josh Thornton. “Sara (D’Appolonia) can do a lot of those same things with the ball. Both of them can create something from nothing, and both of them have scored goals they have no business scoring. We’re very lucky to have that firepower at forward.”

Added Cape Coach Craig Fannon: “The ball sticks with Katie. Her touch is always good and she brings others into it really well. We wanted to limit them, and we did a pretty good job and made it scrappy, but their forwards are going to shine through eventually.”
