North Branford Girls' Soccer Drops Opener to Morgan

The T-Birds traveled to Morgan and came home with a 1-0 loss.

 

The girls' soccer team opened its season on Sept. 11 by traveling to perennial rival Morgan's home field at Indian River Complex in Clinton. 

As usual, it was a tight game, going scoreless for much of the opening half. The Huskies broke through with 18:47 to play in the first half when Kendra Hixon scored from Josie Sullivan off a corner kick scramble in front of the T-Birds' net.

That goal held up as the game-winner as both teams had 15 shots on net in the contest. North Branford goalkeeper Sarah Miniccuci had eight saves, while Morgan's Kelsey Donaldson had six.
