The Section 1 Tournament got underway yesterday with the Class C outbracket games. Perhaps the most notable of the games was 19th-seeded Lourdes getting it first-ever win in sectional play.
Rye Country Day, which went through the regular season undefeated, remained just that, beating Greenwich Academy for the second time this season and claiming the FAA Tournament championship.
With the first round of sectionals set to begin, I’ll be at Edgemont today to catch them hosting Albertus Magnus. As usual, be sure to follow me on Twitter for updates on that, and for the day’s results.
Rye Country Day can now claim it’s the top program in the Fairchester Athletic Association.
After winning the regular-season title earlier this year, the Wildcats defeated Greenwich Academy 12-11 in the FAA Tournament final on Wednesday.
Taylor Regan had six goals and two assists, including the game-tying goal with 2:13 left and the winning goal with 1:53 left.
Emily Duarte added four goals, Julia Massaro had five assists, while Zoe Verni and Sam Kost rounded out the scoring for the Wildcats.
“I think for our kids, it proves to them that they really are the best team in the FAA,” Rye Country Day coach Georgette Summers said. “They played a phenomenal game today. To beat GA twice when we’ve never beaten them before, it just proves this team is really something special.”
