Girls’ soccer is looking good going into the final weeks of the season. At 9-5, the Mounties have already qualified for the Western Mass tournament. With the last three matches approaching, the team needs as many wins as they can get to improve their seeding in the tournament. Their five losses this year have come against top ten teams Wahconah,  Pittsfield, and West Springfield. They lost to Wahconah and Pittsfield two times each. The Mounties are being held back this year only because of their struggle to play shutout defense. Scoring is not the problem right now as senior captain Lucy Barrett leads the way with nine goals and senior captain Kelsey Orpin has six goals and eight assists. Their stellar performances have allowed Greylock to control play in almost every game. The team’s depth this year will be key if the Mounties want to go far in the Western Mass tournament. The varsity team, with twenty-two underclassmen, appears to have a bright future; however, the lack of experience among the young players could come back to bite them during the playoffs. The three senior captains (Lucy Barrett, Kelsey Orpin and Miranda Voller) possess loads of responsibility which is a job that is tough to handle. At this point in the season the team will have to rely on all twenty-five players. With the Mounties’ chemistry coming together, it will be fun to see how they will do coming into the final weeks.
