Amesbury girls soccer gets the best of Newburyport

(Continued)

Clippers coach Rob Gonnam made no excuses.

“We got out-played, it’s as simple as that,” assessed Gonnam. “We were out-played mentally, we were out-played physically. We talked before the game about (us) wanting to become champions. And either they would be more motivated to do that, or we would be more motivated to remain champions. We found the answer today. The only positive thing is, we’ll probably play them again in the state tournament.”

“It certainly was not our best game,” echoed Gonnam’s co-coach Kevin Sheridan. “(Amesbury) is a good team and they played well. We, plain and simple, lost and, in some part, beat ourselves. But, not to take away from them, they’re a good team. We struggled hitting targets. When you do that, you’re not going to score goals. So, we certainly have some things to work on. We’re halfway through the season, we need to step it up, and we know where the bar is.”

Berry praised her seniors on a surprisingly hot day.

“Every senior class from Amesbury wants to beat Newburyport on their home game, so they did and I’m happy for them,” said Berry.
