Gloucester (1-0) opened up the newly refurbished New Balance Track and Field at Newell Stadium in style Wednesday to the tune of a shutout win over a Northeastern Conference foe.

“It was a great way to kick off the season and open the new stadium,” Gloucester head coach Lauren Riley said. “The girls came out ready to play in all facets of the game.”

Gloucester put the game away early with five goals in the first half, two from senior captain Taylor Sargent and one each from Haley Davis, Kayla Nasser and Sabrina Cottone. Olivia Legendre and Chloe Flavin added second half goals while the defensive trio of senior captains Jill MacDonald and Julia Lamoureaux along with Kate Morrissey completely shut down the Revere offense.
