The pressure they applied was relentless and the team stepped up and played well today! Super proud of all 19 girls today – a total team effort.” – Coe-Brown’s Josh Hils

Highlights: The Hawks scored four goals in the first 30 minutes of the match to put away the Wildcats.

Coach’s quote: “It was a good game against a strong Fall Mountain team. Many girls on our team are under the weather and were tired from our away game Monday, so we started out slow, but picked it up quickly enough for a strong showing.” – Hopkinton’s Mike Zahn

Records: Hopkinton 9-1-0; Fall Mtn. 4-2-2

Boys’ Soccer

Kingswood 6, Coe-Brown 0

Key players: Coe-Brown – Steven Phillips (12 saves)

Highlights: Coe-Brown lost the ball on the dribble 20 times in the match and gave up 24 shots.

Coach’s quote: “This is our second game like this where the wheels seemed to fall off. Interestingly, the Bow team that gave us the same problems also ran a four-middle-diamond-two in which their midfield was really committed to streaking forward on the attack during transitions. Losing the ball the amount of times as we did on the dribble (20) and losing the transition play is a recipe for trouble. In the end, I’m proud of our team working hard until the last whistle and played with class even with the circumstances being really tough. I’m committed to getting them to be more consistent. If they stay hungry and focused, I do believe they will be able to compete with anyone by season’s end.” – Coe-Brown’s Christian Gompert

Records: Kingswood 5-2-2; Coe-Brown 6-3-0

Hopkinton 3, Conant 0

Key players: Hopkinton –  Cam Bassett (goal), Liam Boyle (goal), Owen Wuellenweber (goal), Abram Standefer (assist), Nolan Linstad (assist), Colby Boissy (2 saves)

Coach’s quote:  “Hopkinton played tough soccer against a Conant team that has suffered through some injuries but can still play strong and fast. Center back Mike Pantano anchored the defense to the shutout, as he tackled assuredly and cleanly a number of times to shut down what looked like dangerous Conant attacks.” – Hopkinton’s Scott Zipke

Records: Hopkinton 9-1-0; Conant 4-4-1

We’ve struggled to score the last three games so we will definitely have some areas of focus to work on in practice. It’ll be nice to have some time to work on things as a team after four games in a row.” – MV’s Jen Colgan
