Meg Hughes continues to pace Old Rochester Regional girls soccer with her unrelenting offensive production. But that’s nothing new for the Providence College-bound senior. Hughes has been at the center of ORR’s offense year in and year out, to the point where she’s now the most successful scorer in the program’s history.
Hughes now has 102 goals to her names, along with 53 assists, having already scored 26 goals and logged 13 assists through the Bulldogs’ first 12 games – all of which they’ve won (nine of which were South Coast Conference games).
In fact, Hughes has outscored the Bulldogs’ opposition on her own throughout the 12 matches. The ORR defense, which is led by Grace Greaney and Rachel Fantoni, has only surrendered 10 goals throughout the season as opposed to the Bulldogs offense’s 60 goals. The team’s stingy defense has helped ORR goalkeeper Skylar Cardwell already log five shutouts on the year.
Each of Cam Brezinski’s three touchdowns was vital in ORR football’s matchup against Dighton-Rehoboth. He caught two passes from Ryon Thomas and pounded one touchdown in on the ground in the Bulldogs’ 28-27 win over the Falcons.
