With the defending state champion Newburyport girls’ soccer team off to a 3-0 start, it begs the question — How does this team match up with last year’s squad?
One can argue the Clippers’ core returned this year in the form of Jillian Kinter, Taylor Bresnahan and Laura Muise. One could also argue that the loss of Maggie Mahoney may play a factor in the state tournament, when last year’s top senior scored several pivotal goals.
Can the Clippers go undefeated this season? Tough to predict when you factor road games at Central Catholic (Sept. 30) and Bishop-Fenwick (Oct. 30).
How are the Clippers able to stay on top despite the loss of key seniors? And do you think they can repeat this season?
