WELLESLEY – The Framingham High girls soccer team lost to Wellesley High 3-2 today, October 18.

Framingham was quick out of the gate getting on the scoreboard first, just 5 minutes into the game.

Gabby Arpino fed freshman Ava Lombardo the perfect pass. With Lombardo’s incredible speed there was no way any defender could have stopped her from taking the goalie one-on-one. She laid out a low shot far post to make it 1-0 Flyers.

Twenty minutes later, Wellesley tied it up.

A minute later the ball appeared to have gone across the goal line to give the Flyers the advantage. A well struck corner kick by Arpino was hit into the goal by Ava Callahan on a header, but the referee called no goal.

Framingham High persevered and Arpino scored on a corner 10 minutes later.

The Flyers had a 2-1 lead at halftime.

Wellesley tied the game 5 minutes into the final half, off a header from a corner kick.

Both teams battled back and forth.
