PHOTOS: Foxborough Girls' Soccer Edges KP Wednesday
A pair of goals from Danielle Roma lifted Foxborough over King Philip, 2-1 Wednesday.
For 80 minutes the Foxborough Warriors and King Philip Warriors girls' soccer teams battled it out on the mud filled and rain soaked field at the Booth Playground.
With just four wins apiece heading into Wednesday's match, both teams needed a victory to keep their dim tournament hopes alive.
Behind a two-goal performance by Danielle Roma, Foxborough earned a 2-1 decision over King Philip to improve to 5-5-2 while King Philip fell to 4-6-1.
A top shelf strike from 25 yards out from Roma in the 16th minute of the first half gave Foxborough the lead.
King Philip struck back in the second half during the 49th minute when Rachel Patten beat the Foxborough back line down the left flank for the tying goal.
10 minuts later, Roma earned her second score of the game after Michela Carinino's corner kick from the right side landed at the feet of Roma, who gave Foxborough the lead on a near post goal.
Foxborough returns to action on Oct. 12 against Oliver Ames while King Philip hosts Mansfield.
