On September 5th, the Penquis Patriots girls soccer team defeated Sumner 1-0. That was the first win for the Patriots in over two years.
On Tuesday, Penquis defeated previously undefeated Penobscot Valley high school (PVHS) from Howland 3-2. After two winless seasons, the Patriots will enter the 2015 tournament as the number four seed. They will host George Stevens.
After the season opening win against Sumner, Penquis lost to Dexter and Central to drop to 1-2. The Patriots won five out of the next six to prove that this team is different than those of recent years.
Penquis went through a three game winless streak, before ending the season with wins over Piscataquis Community High School (PCHS) from Guilford and PVHS.
The future also looks bright for the Patriots. They have two seniors, five juniors, four sophomores, and seven freshmen on their roster. Junior goalie Jordan Durant recorded 24 saves in the big win over the Howlers. Freshmen Camryn Rolfe and Cymeria Robshaw have powered the offense all season. Rolfe recorded a hat trick in wins over Lee Academy and PCHS. Rolfe and Robshaw combined for all three goals in the win over the Howlers. Penquis will enter the postseason with a record of 8-5-1.
