  • The Timothy Edwards Cougars faced off against the Sage Park Chargers yesterday afternoon. The game started evenly match with both sides threatening to score. However, the Cougar press was too much for the Chargers to handle as Taryn Suffish intercepted a pass and found the foot of Sam Wunsch. Wunsch was cool, calm, and collected as she poked the ball into the back of the net bringing the score to 1-0. Outstanding tackling came from the 7th graders Iniya Raja and Emily Ledger as both players never quit and worked hard throughout the game. Additional chances in the first half came from Candace Walsh and Sarah Gordon. The Cougars came out a bit slow in the second half, but maintained the clean sheet with outstanding defensive play from Ellinor Edstrom Megan Martin, Haydin Courtois, and Ella Suppicich. In the second half, midfielders Rhianna O'Meara and Taryn Suffish contributed to the Cougar attack as each held three shots on the day. Late in the second half, Lexi Wheeler found the lower left corner off a penalty kick. The third and final goal came from a free kick as Wheeler demonstrated true composure again, sailing the ball over the top of the defending players and into the back of the net. The goal was said to remind fans of the blistering free kicks from the Real Madrid superstar Christiano Ronaldo. Maria Galley rounded out the team in goal making four saves on the day. Galley's exceptional play has kept the Cougars in close games and for the last two, she has kept two clean sheets. Galley's outstanding play has been vital to the Cougar's success. The Cougars attend their first away game against rivals Illing at 3:30 on Tuesday. Come show your support!

The second half was very similar to the first, however, the Cougars were more patient and probed well in attack. Four goals in the second half were scored by Andrew Monteserin who scored two goals, Dylan Hutton, and Jake Gattuso.  Trevor Lussier and four others were credited with the shutout. The Cougars next game is their first one at home this season on Tuesday. Come out and cheer on the boys!

  • Tuesday afternoon brought great running weather and 2 victories for the TE boys Cross Country team. Kyle Sullivan took the overall victory, leading the Cougars to a 19 to 41 win over Saint James and 15 to 48 over East Hartford.  Alex Matus ran to his best finish of the season with his 9th placing, and Owen Bushman continued his strong running with a top 15 spot.  Vaishnab Nanda used an impressive finishing kick to capture his best time of the year and Alex Turco ran a great race as he has improved his finishing time in each race so far.  The team will be looking to continue their winning streak next Wednesday when they travel to Ellington.
  • The girls Cross Country team suffered a loss of 15 to 40 and celebrated a win of 15 to 50 at their tri-meet against St. James of Manchester and East Hartford last night at Nevers Park.  Audrey Manning led a strong TE pack taking 6th through 12th place in the race including Olivia Petgrave who came in 5th on the team and 9th overall, not allowing a broken finger stop her from taking 42 seconds off her season best time.  Anneliese Mills and Sophia Peruccio both busted out and had huge personal records by over a minute.  A job well done to all runners!  Good luck at your first away meet against Ellington next Wednesday.  
  • The lady Cougars faced off against East Hartford yesterday afternoon at Cougar Stadium. The Cougars proved to be too well-rounded for East Hartford. The game was one of first's, as three of the goal scorers claimed their first goal as a Timothy Edwards Cougar. In the first half, efforts from Taryn Suffish, Iniya Raja, and Sarah Gordon were too much for East Hartford to handle. Only a few minutes after kick-off, Lexi Wheeler swung a threatening cross into the box finding the foot of the striker Candace Walsh to bring the score to 1-0. After that, the goals tumbled in as Taryn Suffish rounded out the half with another goal finding the bottom corner off an assist from Huntyr Courtois. In the second half, the Cougars evenly distributed the ball throughout the field with great midfield play from Emily Ledger, Emerson Iacovelli, and Rhianna O'Meara. Lexi Lilly found the back of the net twice yesterday proving that she is a valuable asset to the Cougars offense. Lilly's second goal was assisted by the captain, Lexi Wheeler, who led the team with two assists on the day. Shortly after, Emerson Iacovelli helped the Cougars increase their lead with a beautiful solo finish. Rounding off the scoring was was Emily Ledger who was assisted by Abby Peruccio late in the match. Peruccio and Ledger posted their first points as Cougars as well. Scoring chances late in the second half came from Mikayla Evans, Huntyr Courtois, and Sam Wunsch. Rounding out the defensive end, Ellinor Edstrom and Megan Martin were relentless in their efforts to keep the East Hartford offense at bay. Overall, a solid win by the Cougars as they look forward to Sage Park in their last home game of the season. The game takes place on Thursday at 3:30. Come out and enjoy what should be a great game!

  • The TEMS Field Hockey team kept their winning streak alive yesterday with a 3-0 win over Avery Middle School of Somers. Scoring for the Cougars was Kayden Burke with an unassisted goal early, with Kelli Mann scoring two more goals with assists from Kayden and Sophie Finer. Emily Scola played very well with great communication. Greta Slater had a great game on defense stopping the charge toward the goal. Maya Swedock kept the shutout alive with a late save at the end of the game. Ria Saxena took the shutout with several great saves. In the second game the Cougars fought a hard offense and finished tied with Avery Middle School 0-0. Emily Osit, Amanda Kozuira, Morgan Reed, Giana Bellody and Abby Bergstrom played very well with several shots on goal.

  • The TE Boys Soccer team took on the Falcons of East Hartford last night and came away with a 1-1 draw on the night.  After controlling much of the play in the first half, TE were unable to capitalize on numerous chances in front of goal.  The Falcons pressed on and scored off a deflected shot in which Keeper Trevor Lussier could do nothing about.  After half-time, the cougars continued to press.  The falcons refuted the cougar attack until midway through the second half.  Ben Bernstein capitalized on a pass back in the box and buried his chance to make the score 1-1.  After continuing to put pressure on the Falcon goal, the final whistle blew as the Cougars felt they could have come away with all three points.  Jaideep Naik, Alex Magarian and Xavier Crane were steady once again in defense.  Jack Stricker and Dylan Hutton provided sparks of the bench.  The Cougars next game is Thursday night at Sage Park, their last away game of the season.

  • Yesterday evening, the TE Girls Soccer Team met long-standing rivals Ellington at Cougar Stadium in what turned out to be a match to remember. Early chances on goal came from the feet of Sarah Gordon, Sam Wunsch, and Candace Walsh as the Cougars looked to rally their offense. However, it was the Wildcats who struck first with an early goal, setting the game to 1-0. Moments later, as the Cougars began to press, Rhianna O'Meara slotted a right-footed strike off the post and in to make the score 1-1. The deadlock lasted through the first half as Iniya Raja, Emerson Iacovelli, Leighana Ferrabelo, and Abby Peruccio secured the defensive end. Opening after half time, the aggressive press from wingers Huntyr Courtois and Lexie Wheeler led to scoring opportunities for Lexi Lilly, but great defensive play from Ellington kept the score tied. Amazing defensive efforts sparked from Ellinor Edstrom as she denied offensive threats and evenly distributed the ball to the midfield. Maria Galley held her position between the pipes making a total of 10 saves on the day. Later in the match, a sublime pass from Ella Suppicich led Taryn Suffish to find the back of the net bringing the score to 2-1. Suffish struck again with an assist from Candace Walsh as the Cougars rallied around the final moments of the game. Suffish posted her first two goals of the season and her tenacity proved to be exactly what the Cougars needed to pull off the win. The Cougars face East Hartford on Tuesday home at 3:30. There are only two home games remaining! Come out and support the team!
  • The TE Boys soccer team traveled to yet another away game last night to play against the Wildcats of Ellington.  It was a great contest and the two sides were of equal quality.  Both teams had quality chances throughout the match with the best one falling for Dylan Hutton.  Unable to convert, the scoreline remained 0-0 going into halftime.  After the second half whistle had blown Ellington upped their pressure on the Cougars.  With the mentality of "bend and don't break" looked like it was going to hold out through the final whistle.  However, the quick footed front player of Ellington skipped passed the defense and buried the ball into the side netting for the game winner.  Jaideep Naik, Damian Ayala, Xavier Crane, and Andrew Bell were stall-worths in the back.  Sam Maleshenko was a threat up top as and Ben Bernstein shot was saved late in the second half.  The Cougars next game is Tuesday as they travel to East Hartford.

  • Yesterday, the girls soccer team matched up against Kennedy Middle School in what turned out to be a nail-biter. The Cougars struck early with eight shots in the first half coming from Lexie Wheeler, Emily Ledger, Sarah Gordon, Sam Wunsch, Lexi Lilly, and Marybeth Grasso. However, it was not long until Rhianna O'Meara threaded a through ball behind the defense to find the foot of Lexi Lilly. Lilly posted her first goal as a Lady Cougar off a hard strike into the top right corner of the goal. Shortly after, Rhianna O'Meara sent a blistering shot over the goalie from outside the 18-yard box. The goal was said to be reminiscent of the late Manchester United superstar David Beckham. Additionally, Mikayla Evans, Huntyr Courtois, and Arden Sansom played outstanding and contributed to the Cougar's dominance during the first half of play. Defensive support came from Ella Suppicich, Haydin Courtois, and Megan Martin as they held Kennedy to a scoreless first half.

  • The TE girls soccer team hosted their second game of the season versus Illing last Friday. Marybeth Grasso led the team with an early goal in the first 10 minutes of play which proved to be all that the Cougars needed. While the Cougar's secured a healthy victory, Illing made a handful of offensive efforts that kept the Cougars on edge. Maria Galley stayed strong between the goal posts making a spectacular breakaway save with her feet that sent the fans to their feet. Haydin Courtois, Rhianna O'Meara, and Taryn Suffish effectively threaded through balls to the wings keeping the Illing defense at bay. However, it was ultimately the scrappy plays from Marybeth Grasso that propelled the Cougars to the victory as she found the back of the net three more times bringing the tally to 4-0. Following up on the offensive end, Lexi Lilly, and Sarah Gordon demonstrated outstanding physical play with great support from wingback's Leighanna Ferrabello, Megan Martin, and Ellinor Edstrom. The Cougar's host their next game today at 3:30 against Kennedy Middle School. Come out and support the team!
