Girls soccer: Hudson 3, Springstead 1

HUDSON — For most of this season, Hudson midfielder Logan McGee has felt as if her shots have been a bit off.

Thursday night, however, McGee looked as if she may have regained her accuracy. The sophomore scored two second-half goals to lift Hudson past Springstead 3-1 at Cobra Stadium.

"My shooting has been off," McGee said. "I didn't think that second goal would go in, but I'm happy it did because we needed it. We didn't play that good our last time against (Springstead). I thought we played good tonight."

On Nov. 11, Hudson lost 5-2 to Springstead. This time around the Cobras (6-3) outshot the Eagles 11-10, and goalkeeper Chey-Anne Savage had five saves.

Hudson struck first as freshman Dominique Ciringliaro scored in the eighth minute, but less than seven minutes later Springstead (5-3) knotted the game up on a header by Tara Vasquez.

Eagles midfielder Alyson Brady narrowly missed giving Springstead the lead, her shot bouncing off the crossbar right before halftime.

In the second half, McGee found her touch offensively in the 48th minute. She took a long pass from senior Becky Reynolds and knocked home the go-ahead goal past goalkeeper Monica Vega (four saves).

McGee added an insurance goal for the Cobras in the 76th minute.

"Logan put a lot of effort out on the field tonight," Hudson coach Stephen Jones said.

"I think Logan's hard work in the second half epitomized the team's heart for the game. We like these games with Springstead because we really push each other. It's good soccer."
