When it comes to answering back, Littleton’s Bridget Schofield got in the last word last night. The Tiger midfielder scored the game-winning goal 54 seconds after Narragansett tied the game and Littleton held on for a 2-1 victory in the Division 2 semifinals at Lunenburg High School. The Tigers will now move on to face Auburn in the District E, Division 2 finals on Thursday at 5:30 at Grafton High School. For Littleton, it will be a return to the finals after losing in the championship game last year to Oakmont, 2-1. “Coach (Diane Crory) told us to just keep up the intensity, that it was ours for the taking and we needed to get it back,” said Schofield, regarding the time out called by Narragansett just after Warrior Rylie Hammond tied the score at 1-1 with 5:56 left in the game. Not allowing the momentum swing Narragansett’s way, the Tigers rushed the ball up field and forward Audrey Zaborowski carried it toward the crease. Stephanie Gentile fed it toward the front of the net but ‘Gansett goalie Brianna Kulvette made the initial save. However, Schofield was there to collect the loose ball and pop it into the net for the game-winner with 5:01 left on the clock.
