In the end, Amesbury’s election limbo has finally, thankfully, ended. Mayor-elect Gray can now begin the transition process in a definitive way. Kezer did what was best for Amesbury.
It was a phenomenal season for the Newburyport High School girls varsity soccer team. And it was capped off in the only way it should be — by a state title, won the old-fashioned way in the state Division 3 championships.
The Clippers edged out their opponents in a hard-fought 1-0 game a week ago Saturday, in front of an enormous crowd of supporters.
The season was one for the record books — undefeated with a 21-0-2 record, the first in NHS team history. Five playoff games in which the Clippers didn’t allow a single goal. And 18 games over the course of the season in which the team held opponents scoreless. This was an iron curtain defense paired with a dynamic offense. Congratulations to the Clippers! What a phenomenal season!
