The Richford Rockets girls' varsity soccer team on the field at Danville High School on Saturday.

DANVILLE - The Richford Rockets girls varsity soccer team bested Danville 3-2, in Danville, on Saturday.
 
"We came into the first half a little nervous. Danville had a quick goal scored right off, and Kyrielle Deuso answered," said Rockets coach Abby Coon.

The teams played a back-and-forth game early, but Danville scored again in the midway through the first half. Richford's Emma Fadden answered quickly, tying the score before the teams headed to the halftime break.

The Rockets made some adjustments at half time, and according to Coon, dominated play in the second half. Unable to break the deadlock in regulation, the teams went into overtime. 

"I felt confident with the adjustments we made and knew it was just a matter of putting the ball in the back of the net," said Coon.

Richford's Madison Boylan had the ball on the left side of the field; she passed to Ella Chagnon. Chagnon took some touches and put the ball in the back of the net to secure the win for the Rockets.

"Karen (Chagnon) and myself and the rest of the team ran over and celebrated!" said Coons.

Coon also highlighted Aubrey Fadden who was in net for her first varsity; Fadden had 15 saves.
 
"It was a super exciting first game. I really couldn’t be more proud as a coach. This team worked hard, and never once gave up," said Coons.
 
"The team celebrated afterwards by FaceTiming their other coach, Katja Langmaid who is currently serving."
 
Assists: Madeline Pike assisted on two goals.
