Game Recap: Westbrook Edges Massabesic

Westbrook 3, Massabesic 2
Saturday, September 21
Olmsted Field, Westbrook


Owen Gillis ('14) converted a Chadd Pelletier ('15) cross into the game-winning goal with six minutes remaining to help Westbrook (4-2) beat Massabesic (1-4) yesterday morning, 3-2.

The Blue Blazes, who were playing their fourth game in six days, conceded a goal in the first ten minutes, when Dylan Blackington headed in a corner kick served by Surafel Zunser. Westbrook's Elisha Gato ('15) answered with a breakaway goal off a Jacob Webster ('14) throw-in about fifteen minutes later, and the half ended with the two teams deadlocked at one goal apiece.

Gillis scored his first goal of the game in the first minute of the second half, and the Blazes held onto a 2-1 lead for about thirty minutes before Zunser scored an unassisted goal in the 70th minute. Four minutes later, left back Pelletier received an overlapping pass from left midfielder Varney Kai ('16) and found Gillis at the back post for the game-winning header.

Austin Blake ('14) had five saves in his fourth win of the season, and Andrew Wicklund stopped seven shots for Massabesic.

With the win, Westbrook improved its twenty-five year record against Massabesic to 24-2-1 (110-20 goal differential) and snapped a two-year losing streak to the Waldoboro-based school.

Westbrook travels to Marshwood (0-6) on Tuesday.
