When Eastchester hosted Bronxville on Tuesday night, Eagles coach Frank Fiore expected the typical match-up between the neighboring towns.
“It’s hardcore. Both teams want to win because when you live right next to a town, you don’t want to lose,” Fiore said. “It always seems to come down to a goal here or there.”
Fiore’s perception about the match-up was right. It came down to a goal in the Eagles’ favor, led by second half turnaround in which Dava Fortunato scored twice and led her team to a 3-2 win.
“I am so proud of them; it wasn’t just one person,” Fiore said. “It was a back and forth battle where either team could’ve won.”
Tori Fleischmann added a goal assisted by Fortunato. Teammate Clarissa Mejia recorded eight saves.
“Bronxville is the kind of team that is solid from every position,” Fiore said. “We played great and we capitalized on opportunities that were presented to us. The win was attributed to hard work and determination.”
Caitlin Fryer scored two goals for the Broncos.
