With the fall season quickly approaching, we have scoured the schedules and circled a few games that are going to be important this season. Here are 5 games to watch this season for girls soccer, including a match up of two 2011 South champions.
9/7 - Milford @ Taunton - 4:00
It's the first game of the season for both teams, it's the first game in the Hockomock League for both teams, and it's going to be a good game. The Hawks and the Tigers are both going to be looking to start the season -- and the league -- off with a win, which will drive both teams to push for a win.
10/5 - Oliver Ames @ Franklin - 3:30
This game will feature the the last two D1 South champions as the Tigers (2011) travel to face off the Panthers (2010). Kirsti Kirshe and Steph Pisani will try and lead Franklin back to the top while Kendall Andrew and Kelsey Bliss are going to try and get OA back-to-back South titles.
10/16 - Oliver Ames @ Canton - 3:30
It will be the second meeting between Canton and Oliver Ames, and it should be a good one. While Oliver Ames won the D1 South last year, Canton took the D2 South Crown. These are easily the top two teams in the Davenport and this very well could determine the champion of the Small Hock.
10/19 - Sharon @ Canton - 3:45
Sharon made the tournament last year with an impressive 10-6-4 record. With URI commit Samantha Alves and UVM commit Meg James, the Eagles could really challenge for the Davenport title this season. If they want to do that, they'll have to beat Maryland-commit Lauren Berman and the rest of the Canton Bulldogs.
10/26 - Mansfield @ Franklin - 3:30
If there's a team with a chance to dethrone Franklin atop the Kelley-Rex, it's Mansfield. They finished 2011 at 8-4-5 and won their first tournament game. With this being the last game of the season for Mansfield, it could be their chance to steal the Kelley-Rex title.
