NORTHBOROUGH – The fourth-seeded Algonquin Regional High School girls soccer team fell to second-seeded Hingham by a score of 1-0 in the MIAA Division 1 finals that were played at Walpole High School on Nov. 19.  

The game’s lone goal was a first half shot by Hingham senior Sophie Reale.

Algonquin launched a strong attack in second half, and led in time of possession, but despite numerous opportunities including several corner kicks in the closing minutes, the ball was never able to find the net.

After the game, coach John Frederick placed a runner-up medal around each player’s neck, offering words of support to each athlete.

The team had a police escort out of the Algonquin Regional High School parking lot. A large contingent of fans made the trip down to Walpole, tailgating in the parking lot prior to the game, and offering strong support during the match.

Algonquin’s lineup features ten seniors, three of which are committed to play in college next year, and is rounded out by eleven juniors and five sophomores.

Algonquin’s last appearance in the state finals was in 2015, where they lost to Needham.  In 2009, they won the state championship after defeating Acton-Boxboro.

Algonquin concludes its season with a 16-2-6 record, their only other loss to Grafton in the final matchup of the season.
