Yarmouth's still perfect…barely; Clippers edge Cape to punch state game ticket

YARMOUTH—Six weeks ago, Yarmouth’s girls’ soccer team crushed rival Cape Elizabeth by seven goals.

Thursday evening, in the Class B South Final, the Clippers found the going much, much tougher against the Capers.

But Yarmouth is the defending state champion for a reason and after digging deep, it earned the opportunity to play for another Gold Ball.

The seventh-ranked Capers, riding the momentum from a surprising playoff run, gave the top-seeded Clippers everything they could handle in an even first half, which saw just seven total shots on frame and no goals scored. ... me-ticket/

Top-ranked Yarmouth edges Cape, 1-0
Ehryn Groothoff scores the game's only goal as the Clippers win the Class B South title and advance to Saturday's state final.

...“That 7-0 game was a real eye opener,” Cape Elizabeth Coach Craig Fannon said. “A lot of the girls had to reevaluate how much they wanted it. I think they’ve certainly answered that question and proved themselves.”

Yarmouth keeper Meredith Lane made five saves, while Cape Elizabeth’s Lilia Membrino finished with eight saves.

The teams appeared evenly matched in the first half, as each had five shots, including three on goal.

Yarmouth’s top scorer, Sara D’Appolonia, credited Cape Elizabeth’s defense with keeping the Clippers from getting many good looks.

“Cape has an awesome back line – Grace Gillian specifically,” D’Appolonia said. “She’s a force back there. But they have really jelled over the course of the season and they stuck it to us.” ... -cape-1-0/
