Cam Bassett (defensive center midfield) and Lincoln Wilson (outside back) played some big minutes to help Hopkinton earn the clean sheet.

Hopkinton 4,
Bishop Brady 1

Key players: Hopkinton – Ashlee Brehio (2 goals, 2 assists), Annie Higginbotham (2 goals, assist), Paige Martin (assist), Emily Fleegle (goalie), Ellie Sintros (midfield), Elise Miner (midfield); Bishop Brady – Lydia Tremblay (goal)

Highlights: The Hawks scored all four goals in the first 33 minutes of the first half and dominated possession all game long. The Giants played much better against Hopkinton in this rematch than they did of the season opener, a 10-0 loss.

Coaches’ quotes: “Brady was much improved since the first game of the season. Tremblay has lightning speed and dribbled past five Hawks players to finish with a nice chip over Fleegle. Our girls need to do better with winning 50/50 balls within our last four regular season games to prep for the playoffs.” – Hopkinton’s Mike Zahn

“My girls had played so well. We are getting better and our goalie Hayley Cochran is going to be an all-state player if she keeps up with her training. We are slowly, but surely, adopting our formation.” – Bishop Brady’s Cevat Vural

Records: Hopkinton 12-0-0; Bishop Brady 3-7-1

Kearsarge 1,
White Mountains 0

Key players: Kearsarge – Estelle Chmura (goal), Lauren Busch (assist)

Highlights: Caroline Camp, Chmura and Ella Stocker controlled much of the game in the midfield, creating multiple opportunities for the Cougars, but the game was scoreless at halftime thanks to strong play from White Mountains’ goalkeeper Carrisa Challiaur. Chmura broke the deadlock midway through the second half.

Coach’s quote: “Nice to see the passing connections and control for many possessions. Lots of creative possessions started out of the backfield through all lines of attack. The midfield and forwards were connected and the defense stood tall to keep a clean sheet. Kudos to the Spartans who stood up to multiple challenges and fought til the end.” – Kearsarge’s Dave Smith

Records: Kearsarge 8-4-0; White Mtns. 5-5-1

John Stark 2,
Oyster River 1

Highlights: The Generals came from behind to win their third straight.

Coach’s quote: “The trust the girls have in one another and in the coaching staff to change formations and positions shows how they can adapt to keep on coming from behind for the win. This isn’t just a team or a program. This is a family that is there for one another day in and day out. Today was a family effort to get things done.” – John Stark’s Chris Pike

Records: John Stark 7-3-1; Oyster River 5-4-2
