The Field Hockey B team fought valiantly against Tripp’s only team, their A team, but ultimately lost 0-6. Frontline Julia Pols, Betsy Orlando, Abby Belanger, and Emily Viola worked well together for several offense sparks!
The Lady Huskies “A” field hockey team scored a 4 – 0 victory over a small numbered Tripp team. Brunswick’s scoring came from Sophie Katz; Shea Sullivan assisted by Sophie; Logan Gillis assisted by Eliza Rudalevige; and Liberty Krauss assisted by Logan. Strong link play by Maggie Folsom, Maddie Wayne, and Erin Coughlin helped the forwards keep play deep in the Tripp circle. The defense of Emma Nickerson, Ainsley Harrower, Arianna Edwards, Madi Bailey, and Kristen Hummer held tough as Tripp had 9 shots on goal and Grace Casey recorded the shut-out again. Come cheer the team on Monday for a home game against Auburn.
The girls 7th grade huskies soccer team had an outstanding win against Tripp with a score of 2 to 0. The girls started off the second half with a 1-0 lead with a beautiful cross by Anna Nadeau to Mackenzie Dorr, who finished it in the top left corner and the girls went wild. With 2 minutes left, Lila Solberg took the ball up the field and had a strong pass to Anna Nadeau who finished with a powerful shot that flew right past the goalie and into the top corner. Emily did a great job at right striker and Nadia Sinsmyr did an awesome job in goal with a strong defensive line by Ella Tycz, Jenna Roane, Abby Morthland, and Lexi Guptill. The girls play Bath Middle School, this Friday at 3:30. Good luck Huskies!
Yesterday, in a pre-season flag football matchup between the Seahawks and the Broncos, the Seahawks completed three passes into the end zone, resulting in an 18 to 0 win. Scoring for the Seahawks was: Drew DeSantis on all three passes into the end zone from Evan Killfoil. Playing strong defensively for the Seahawks were Conlan Storer, Tyler Douglas, and Evan Molnar. Conlan Storer and Tyler Douglas each made a notable pass interception to stop a drive by the Broncos. Defensive stand-outs for the Broncos included J. D. Santiago, Chase Whelan, Henry Burnham, Spencer Marquis, and Kenny Hogan. Just a reminder, flag football sign-ups continue Thursday after school for 6th and 7th graders. Players from those grades, still interested in being part of the flag football conference schedule, should come Thursday to be put on a team or see Mr. Higgins in Room 308, if they cannot make the meeting.
All cross country team members will need to change up quickly and meet outside, after period 7, for today’s meet at Oxford Hills.
