Somerville Soccer Falls to Needham
The Somerville High School boys soccer team's stellar season ended Wednesday.
After taking the lead early in the game, held at Manning Field in Lynn, Somerville gave up a goal to Needham in the 25th minute, and then Needham took the lead for good on a penalty shot just before the half, according to ESPN.
Somerville coach George Scarpelli told ESPN, "It was tough when you lose on something like that," in reference to the penalty goal. "It's disheartening," he said.
The game ended a stellar season for Somerville in which, in addition to winning a division championship, they finished with a record of 19-0-3.
