FALMOUTH—The Falmouth and Cape Elizabeth girls' soccer teams got the regular season off to a memorable start with a thrilling 2-1 Yachtsmen victory back on Opening Day.
The teams met against Tuesday night at Falmouth and once again, the rivals put on a show.
The Capers controlled play in the early going, but failed to convert some golden opportunities, even hitting the post on one occasion. The Yachtsmen then went ahead, 1-0, on freshman Tyler Spence's goal in the 24th minute, but five minutes later, Cape Elizabeth managed to draw even as sophomore Kathryn Clark finished. With 53.4 seconds to go in the half, the Capers took the lead as Clark's cross was poked home by freshman Katherine Briggs.
