ATTLEBORO — In a rematch of the 2020 Catholic Central League championship match, the defending champion Bishop Feehan High girls’ soccer team was stunned 1-0 by Bishop Fenwick High Friday at McGrath Stadium.
The defeat snapped a 45-match unbeaten streak by the Shamrocks, dating back to the 24-0 season in which they gained the MIAA Division 1 state championshp; a perfect 14-0 record during the 2020 season in winning the CCL crown; and winning their first seven matches this season.
Bishop Feehan (7-1) allowed only its second goal of the season despite owning a 25-4 advantage in shots. Fenwick scored its goal with two minutes left in the first half out out of a deal ball situation, with a rebound off a a shot on the crossbar.
“They were hungry for a goal,” Bishop Feehan coach Phil Silva.
The Shamrocks were stonewalled by goalie Claudia Keefe, “one of the best goalkeepers in the state,” said Silva. “Give them credit, they stuck to their defensive game plan.”
Bishop Feehan has a week off from action before heading to once-beaten Hockomock League Davenport Division-leading Foxboro.
