FRAMINGHAM – The Broncos are 3-2 this season, under new coach Molly Dee.
The Keefe Technical girls soccer program is junior varsity, “but we are hoping to make it varsity in the future,” said Dee to SOURCE.
There are 26 girls on the team this season. The Broncos opened the season with a loss to AMSA, but bounced back with a victory over Bay Path regional 2-1.
The Broncos lost their third game of the season to Blackstone Valley Tech, but ahain bounced back by defeating parker Charter 5-2.
But on Wednesday, lost to Monty Tech 5-2.
The team is led by captains this year Abigail (Abby) Mello, Salome Mesa, and Jasmine Arroyo.
“Abby is our striker, she has an amazing shot but her real talent lies in rounding everyone up and leading the team in exercises/stretching,” said Dee.
“Salome is the smiling face that keeps everyone’s energy up,” said Dee. “Often put in as the sweeper she leads almost every cheer and is an endless source of joy when spirits are low.”
“Jasmine is our third capitan, generally hanging out at midfield she can be found running up and down the field supporting everyone in their position,” said Dee.
There are six seniors on the junior varsity squad, including the three captains. The other seniors are Pereira (they/them), Luisa Potes, and Neyda Salgado.
The team’s starting goalie is Pereira (they/them).
Mesa is the best defensive player on the team, with captain Mello the top scorer on the squad, said Dee.
“This season’s goal is to come together and play as a team. After this past year dealing with a pandemic many students are not necessarily used to working with one another and relying on each other as a group. So learning how to be around one another again, how to communicate and how to trust one another after such a long time apart is our major area of focus,” said Dee. “Then we are hoping with a strong team and a well played season we will have enough students to have a varsity and junior varsity team for next year.”
