Sheehan’s freshman goalkeeper, Nour Sofiane, made crucial saves to keep the Trojans off the scoreboard, denying a pair of free kicks in the first half.

Lyman Hall had a chance to close the gap in the 45th minute with a penalty kick, but Stephen Rodas Valverde’s effort went over the bar, leaving the score at 2-0.

Rodas Valverde redeemed himself by scoring in the 48th minute, bringing the score to 2-1. However, Sheehan swiftly restored their two-goal lead, with Burr notching his second goal in just 17 seconds.

Burr’s pursuit of a hat trick was initially denied in the 60th and 66th minutes, but he ultimately achieved the feat in the 69th minute, extending the Titans’ lead to 4-1. Reynaldo Sanchez provided the assist for Burr’s final goal.

After this performance, Burr’s season tally stands at an impressive 11 goals and two assists.

The Sheehan coach, Lou Rodriguez, commended the senior players and captains for their leadership and praised Burr’s explosive playing style.

Chase Britton, Nico Cardona, Burr, and Sanchez all contributed with assists in the victory for Sheehan.

The match ended with a resounding 5-0 victory for Sheehan.

Lyman Hall’s standout players included Rosie Turbett and Ellie Madancy in the midfield, with Turbett making her return from an ACL tear suffered last season. Junior Madison Buccheri also performed admirably.
