Wiscasset Middle High School girls’ chance at qualifying for a spot in the Class C South soccer playoffs ended Friday in North Anson with a 2-0 loss to Carrabec.

The Cobras scored early and added a second goal in the second half. The Wolverines got off to a slow start and found themselves playing a defensive game through most of the first 40 minutes of play when goalie Lily Souza was called on to make four saves in the net.

Coaches Duane Goud and Todd Souza were able to rally their charges at halftime. “We actually controlled the tempo for about 15 minutes or so in the second half but unfortunately we just weren’t able to break through and score,” Souza said afterwards. “Our girls played hard from start to finish and so did theirs.” The Wolverines departed for North Anson, a 90-minute bus ride, in early afternoon. The game ran from 4 p.m. to about 5:45. Souza said it was windy, cold and nearly dark by the end. 

The Wolverines finished the Moutain Valley Conference season with four wins and 10 losses. WMHS defeated Telstar, Mountain Valley and Dirigo and won by forfeit over Boothbay Region High School. The loss Friday dropped Wiscasset to 18th in the Class C South tournament ranking. The top 14 qualify for the postseason.

Wiscasset finished 1-13 last season.
