The Everett High field hockey team won its second game of the season Friday with a 2-1 victory over former GBL rival Revere.

After the Lady Crimson Tide had spotted Revere a 1-0 lead in the opening half, Dachelande Joseph, assisted by Nancy Nguyen, knotted matters at 1-1 before the intermission.

That set the stage for seniors captains Sashae Walls and Yasmine Akib to team together to produce the game winning marker with about 10 minutes to go, Sashae getting the goal and Yasmine the assist.

“The girls played hard throughout the game and it was a well deserved victory,” said EHS head coach Janet Colameta.

The coach noted the solid play of her defense and cited in particular the performance of junior defenseman Casey Brennan. “Casey was unbelievable,” said Colameta. “She gave 110 percent and came up with every ball she went after.”

The Everett triumph also was notable for the effort turned in by Ana Capozzi, who was forced to don the goalie’s pads and gear because of the absence due to illness of regular goalie Samantha Fudge.

“Ana really stepped up for us and did a great job,” said Colameta.

The Lady Crimson Tide were set to travel to Bishop Fenwick yesterday (Tuesday) and will journey to Beverly Thursday and to Braintree Friday before returning home against Waltham Monday.
