RHS Girls Soccer Senior Night Tomorrow; Bettero Nears 100 Goals
As the RHS girls soccer team heads into the last two weeks of the season, the Lady Patriots, who stand at 8-5-1, will be looking to clinch a spot in the post-season state tournament.
In addition, senior captain Carolina Bettero, who has 97 career goals, will be looking achieve the coveted 100-goal milestone.
The Revere girls recently dropped a 2-1 decision to Lynn Classical.
“We have had some heart-breaking games this season and this was among them,” said RHS head coach Megan O’Donnell. “Classical is a great team with a great coach who makes these games fun.
“We had great play from our freshman goalkeeper, Nisrin Sekkat, and solid defense from Ari Pina, Giselle Salvador, Sandra Torres, and Emily Gomes,” said O’Donnell.
“Our midfield has been solid all season, coming from all different players, Catalina Chizavo, Erika Mejia, Angela Huynh, and Nahomy Martinez,” O’Donnell added. “We also have had solid leadership up at the striker position from Kyra Delaney and Carolina Bettero.”
This past Thursday the Lady Patriots traveled to Medford and lost another heartbreaker, 2-1, to a strong Lady Mustang team.
“We had solid midfield play from Nahomy Martinez, Erika Mejia, and Catalina Chizavos,” O’Donnell noted. “We had plenty of chances, but the Medford keeper was on her ‘A game’ against us.”
However, the Lady Patriots concluded their week by breaking into the win column with a 4-2 triumph against Somerville.
Bettero was on fire, torching the Lady Highlander net for all four of the Revere goals.
“Our keeper, Nisrin Sekkat, had an unbelievable game in goal for us, making some awesome saves,” added O’Donnell.
O’Donnell and her crew will host Malden tomorrow evening (Thursday) for Senior Night festivities under the lights at Harry Della Della starting at 6:00.
“We have our eyes set on making the tournament this season,” said O’Donnell.

However, two days later coach Manny Lopes’s crew found the range in their contest with Boston Latin to come away with a 4-2 victory.
The goal-scorers for the Patriots were Keny Guerrero Alvarez (assisted by Luis Marquez), captain David Marquez (assisted by Felipe Maia), Kevin Rivas Flores (unassisted), and David Marquez again for his second goal of the game (assisted by Jeferson Pineda Mejia).
