Crushing Win Avenges Previous Loss

Andover Girls Water Polo sank Suffield in a 16-10 win, moving its record to 2-1.

Many Andover players put up points on the scoresheet including Co-Captain Kait Simpson ’14, Co- Captain Lauren Conte ’14, Sasha Newton ’16, Kelly Xia ’16 and Corinna Torabi ’14 who had upwards of four.

Despite the overwhelming scoreline, Suffield did threaten Andover’s lead at some points in the game. One player in particular consistently found Andover’s weak spot as she lobbed shots into the goal from seven or eight meters out, recording the majority of Suffield’s points.

Eden Livingston ’15 said, “We weren’t very good at defending way outside the five meters and our goalie wasn’t used to it. We didn’t adapt, making it closer than it should have been.”

On Saturday Andover will travel to Deerfield where it hopes to gain a similar outcome as from the Suffield game.
