  • The lady Cougars traveled to Ellington yesterday afternoon in a physical and face paced game. The Cougars started by matching Ellington's pace on the ball. Sarah Gordon struck first with a speedy run down the wing and was able to find the back of the net putting the Cougars up 1-0. Throughout the entire game, midfielders Megan Martin, Iniya Raja, and Emily Ledger seemed to never run out of steam as they kept pace with the opposition up and down the pitch. TE's defenders including Sidney Montana, Hailey Testa, Leighana Ferrabelo, and Mikayla Evans played OUTSTANDING and demonstrated true work ethic in their ability to protect the goal. Shots in the second half came from Chion Pollard, Lexi Lilly, and Sarah Gordon as the Cougars pushed forward to secure a victory. However, the effort to clinch a win was thwarted as Ellington managed to pop in two shots midway through the second half. Despite the loss, Haley Butler made a resounding 8 saves on the day and led the back four with her leadership between the pipes. However, the highlight of the game came from Sidney Montana who managed to clear an opposing shot off the goal line, saving TE from going down another goal. With all said and done, TE move to a record of 3-3 on the season and look forward to face Illing at home today at 3:30. 
  • The TEMS Field Hockey Team faced off against JFK of Enfield yesterday. The Cougars won the first game with a score of 6-0. Scoring the first goal for the cougars was Sophie Finer with an assist from Kaylee Guerrera. The second goal was scored by Rachel Turrer with an assist by Abby Bergstrom. Rachel also scored the third goal of the game unassisted. Amanda Koziura , Emily Osit and Tori Jarvis worked together to score next with a double assisted goal. Gialla Bellody scored the fifth goal assisted by Rachel Turrer, adding to her impressive point total for the day. Gianna went on to assist the last goal of the game scored by Alexa Parada. Ria Saxena was credited with the shutout with the defense doing a great job keeping the ball on the Patriot's side of the field. The second game was also won by the Cougars with a score of 4-1. Alexis Dabrowski scored twice, Alexa Parada chipped in a goal and an assist and Sarah Stoddard scored the final goal. Karen Luo, Meredith Pinto, Brenda Do and Avery Pelczar also played great for the Cougars. The teams next home game is today, after school against Avery Middle School of Sommers.

  • The TEMS girls kicked off against rivals Ellington yesterday afternoon in a very physical match. The match was mostly even as defenders Huntyr Courtois, Sidney Montana, Iniya Raja, and Hailey Testa kept the threat low. Outstanding plays came from Mikayla Evans, Hailey Testa, Anna Matus, and Megan Martin who demonstrated hustle and determination throughout the game. The Cougars fought hard and were able to keep the score tied at half-time. In the second half, TE let in a quick two goals and couldn't seem to recover. Through balls played by Emily Ledger and Megan Martin opened up gaps, but were not enough to give TE the momentum they needed. Katelyn Roux had a strong second half with a few chances on goal. Roux linked up with the likes of Lexi Lilly and Arden Sansom for a few plays, but Ellington was able to prevent TE from finding the back of the net. Hailey Butler played strong between the goalposts making six saves on the day. The Cougars face East Hartford at home next Tuesday at 3:30. Come out and support the team!

  • The TE Boys Soccer team were in action again last night taking on the Wildcats of Ellington. Unfortunately the Cougars were taken down by the cats as they fell 4 to 1. Damian Ayala scored the lone goal for the Cougars. Xavier Crane; Erik Montes de Oca and Kyle Castro played strong in defense. Aadi Dey had two superb efforts on goal though the Cougars weren't able to follow up and put them in. Next up the Cougars travel to east Hartford on Tuesday.
