NHIAA Roundup: Goffstown advances in Division II

The sixth-ranked Goffstown Grizzlies (11-4-2) knocked off No. 11 John Stark of Weare (6-7-4) with three second half goals in a 3-0 NHIAA girls’ Division II first round soccer win Wednesday.

Aly Leblanc, Parker McBride and Michele Tremblay scored the goals for Goffstown.

“It was a great start to the playoffs for us. It was a tough matchup,” Tremblay said. “It was tied at halftime, but in the second half we started finishing out chances.”

Goffstown moves on to a second round game at 2 p.m. on Saturday at No. 3 Souhegan of Amherst, which was a 2-1 winner over Lebanon.
