‘Beasties’ rumble past East Mountain

Once upon a time, the East Mountain girls’ soccer team was responsible for ousting Robertson from the state tournament — another classic case of entrenched private school trumping public on the postseason pitch.

But Wednesday’s match at RHS Field was far removed from that chapter in Beastie Girls history — in more ways than one.

Robertson (6-2 overall) scored three times in the first 11 minutes and went on to an 8-0 romp.
