Leighana Ferrabelo, Katelyn Roux, both slotted two on the day, and Emerson Iacovelli rounded out the total with an amazing corner kick that swerved in around the goalkeeper. Additional assists came from Sidney Montana and Leighana Ferrabelo. Play of the game came from the goal keeper Haley Butler who assisted Samson off an amazing punt through the Illing defense. Outstanding play came from Hailey Testa, Huntyr Courtois, Mikayla Evans, Ritika Abburi, as well as superb passing from Isabelle Beaulieu, Sam Grodovich, and Elise Suffish.

  • The TE boys soccer team was in action last night taking on the Illing Rams of Manchester.  It was a gorgeous day for a game and the home team didn't disappoint.  Jake Gattuso led off the scoring onslaught six minutes into the contest.  Mason Layaw then assisted on a ball to Monteserin just one minute later making it 2-0.  Vaughn Bizier added a third before half time.  In the second half, Gattuso found the net two more times and Monteserin added his second of the game.  Illing score off a penalty in the second half but didn't trouble returning keeper Joey Bemis in goal that often.  The Cougars play on Thursday night at Tolland in the CRAL.
