Villa Novans girls' soccer team bows to Tolman, 6-2

October 10, 2012

WOONSOCKET -- Back on Friday, Sept. 14, Tolman High senior Ashley Clark registered five goals in a rather easy 9-1 thumping of Woonsocket at the McKinnon-Alves Complex.
She failed in her attempt to repeat that feat during the two teams’ Division III-A rematch at Barry Field on rainy Wednesday afternoon.
Still, head coach Bel Pereira didn’t mind a bit; why would he? Clark netted four tallies and senior defender Amber Duhamel did a superb job of defending the Villa Novans’ stellar senior quad-captain and striker Krislyn Godin in the Tigers’ 6-2 triumph.
