November 1, 2022
The North Yarmouth Academy girls’ soccer team will get to defend its state championship, once again.
Leah Dube netted a hat trick, scoring all three goals in the second half, and the top-seeded Panthers defeated No. 2 Richmond, 7-0, in the Class D South final at Freeport High School Tuesday night.
NYA (17-0-0) has won the last three Class D titles. Richmond finished 12-5-0.
“Those opportunities, you just never know how they’re going to turn out, never mind just getting there,” NYA Coach Rick Doyon said. “It’s not easy. I don’t care what you’re winning record (is). It’s still not easy, keeping them composed and not getting cocky. You just don’t know in this game.”
Michala Wallace had two goals for the Panthers, while Graca Bila, who gave NYA a 1-0 halftime lead, and Angel Huntsman also had goals.
