FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham High girls won their first game of the season Wednesday afternoon at Loring Arena. It was also the first win for new head coach Casey Diana.
The Flyers shut out the Wildcats of Weymouth 3-0, to go 1-8 on the season.
“The girls came out strong tonight, from the moment they got to the rink. They found their groove and had energy from the start,” said Coach Diana.
“Our first goal was on the power play, starting with Freshman Charlotte Felz making a big play to keep the puck in the zone. Junior Assistant Captain Georgia Parker picked it up in the corner and sent it to Freshman Ava Sullivan who’s original shot was saved. Parker went to the net hard and picked up the rebound to make it 1-0 early in the first,” said Diana.
” The end of the first and second were quiet score-wise, but physicality picked up on both sides. Very proud of how composed our group stayed and how they responded to the change in play,” said Diana.
“Sullivan picked up her first career goal off a beautiful pass from Parker late in the third,” said Diana.
“Freshman Isabella Ventura also picked up her first career goal off of a rebound with a couple minutes to go,” said Diana.
“Junior Maira McCarthy stood strong in net and stopped all 17 shots she saw,” said Diana, registering her first shut out as a Flyer.
“The coaches were very happy to see the energy the girls brought to the rink tonight, and feel as though if they can carry that momentum forward then the team will start to find even more success,” said Diana.
Next up for the Flyers is an away game against the Warriors of Brookline High.
