Boys’ Soccer

Bishop Brady 3,
White Mountains 0

Key players: Bishop Brady – Keagan Smith (goal), Evan Haas (goal), Nicholas Yonaitis (goal)

Highlights: The Giants earned their second shutout victory of the season with a win over the Spartans.

Records: Bishop Brady 2-2; White Mtns. 2-2

Gilford 1,
Hopkinton 0

Key players: Hopkinton – Aidan Burns (4 saves)

Highlights: Anthony Aguiar scored in the 73rd minute to lift the first-place Golden Eagles to a victory over the Hawks.

Coach’s quote: “The Hawks took one on the chin tonight as Gilford scored late in the game on a free kick. In the 15 minutes just prior to the goal, Gilford created a number of chances, including a few that hit the crossbar or post and bounced out of, rather than into, the goal.  Hopkinton also created a number of chances throughout the game,  including a couple that forced a save and a couple near misses. Today’s game was just not in the cards for us, however, and we suffered our first defeat of the young season.” – Hopkinton’s Scott Zipke

Records: Gilford 4-0; Hopkinton 4-1

Concord 2,
Pinkerton 2

Key players: Concord  – Alejo Caceres (goal, assist), Sujan Bhujel (goal), Max Leahy (9 saves)

Highlights: A high-paced match from beginning to end, Bhujel took a great endline feed from Caceres to open the scoring. Pinkerton responded minutes later on a corner kick to tie the game. Pinkerton scored with 15 minutes to go on a quality strike from 20 yards out, but the Tide responded shortly after with a Caceres strike from the top of the 18 yard box to tie the game.

Coach’s quote: “We were able to get a result not playing our best soccer today. We struggled to be consistent in our play throughout the match. We had moments, but could not maintain it against a strong Pinkerton team.” – Concord’s Scott Dunlop

Records: Concord 2-2-1; Pinkerton 3-1-1

Coe-Brown 2,
Stevens 1

Key players: Coe-Brown – Alex Readel (9 saves), Ben Reiff (assist), Sam Drake (goal), Sam Lapiejko (goal)

Highlights: Stevens was awarded a penalty kick in the second half and converted to cut the lead to 2-1. The Cardinals hammered a ton of balls forward in the last 10 minutes to get the equalizer, but the Bears held them off.

Coach’s quote: “Some games aren’t pretty and this one was no exception. We had plenty of chances that we didn’t convert and allowed them to stay in the game. And while our guys couldn’t get into a rhythm for consistent stretches, we are pleased with the overall effort. Offensively, they are starting to see that a patient approach is sometimes the smarter approach. Defensively, when they pressure the ball more quickly it generates more turnovers and opportunities for them on offense. It was great to get everyone on the squad some significant minutes tonight.” – Coe-Brown’s Christian Gompert

Records: Coe-Brown 2-2; Stevens 2-3

Merrimack Valley 7,

Coach’s quote: “I was pleased by our balanced possession. It was nice to see many different players involved with the attack.” – MV’s Kylee Yam

Records: MV 3-0-2; Plymouth 0-5-1

Highlights: The Hillcats fell in straight sets to the Vikings, 25-6, 25-11, 25-8.

Coach’s quote: “The Mascenic Vikings are a great team with great coaching behind them. I think this was one of those matches where at our best we would be able to contend, but we were not at our best tonight. Communication and teamwork is at the heart of every play and, unfortunately, I think we were missing some of that tonight. The Hillcats will get another opportunity to face this team later in the season and my hope is that we can learn from this loss and be more competitive for that match.” – H-D’s Christa Liquori

Records: Mascenic 3-0; H-D 1-2

Records: Derryfield 5-1, Hopkinton 5-1, Conant 3-5
