Somerville girls soccer strengthened its grip on first place in the Greater Boston League Friday with a 3-1 win over division-rival Medford. The win improved the team's record to 8-1 overall and 6-1 in the GBL.
Somerville goalkeeper Molly Tyler allowed only her second goal all season with a penalty kick in the 23rd minute. Head coach Jason Lenicheck said following the goal “we adjusted our formation to a more attacking-and risky-style.”
