No sectional title this year for Newburyport

(Continued)

“The game was played back and forth. There weren’t too many scoring opportunities,” said Sheridan. “It’s unfortunate that it went the way it did. But that’s the game of soccer sometimes.”

After shocking the Cape Ann Legue by taking out undefeated Amesbury in the quarterfinals on Tuesday night, Belmont now proceeds to the division finals on Monday, leaving Newburyport humbled.

“They’re a good team,” Sheridan said of Belmont. “They possessed the ball, and they played really hard in terms of the defense going through the ball and things like that. They played hard and they’re a good team. That’s why they won against Amesbury and that’s why they won today.”

“It was a good game,” admitted Gonnam. “We played well at times. We played well early, and we played well fairly late. And who knows what we did in the middle. We were peaking at the right time. I thought we had probably better control of the play in terms of possession and they won the air. So we had to play with the intent that we were going to lose the air and win the second ball. And for a good part of the game, that worked.”
