  • The TE Boys Soccer team competed twice in the past 4 days.  Though during both contests, the Cougars showed tremendous grit, finishing with a 1 and 1 record in the two matches. On Friday, TE battled Sage Park.  Joey Bemis got the shutout as the Cougars won 4-0. Aadi Dey scored two while Jake Gattuso and Jack Stricker finished out the scoring.  Dylan Huttton, Kyle Castro, Erik Montes de Oca, Vaughan Bizier and Anthony That were all strong in defense.  Last night the Cougars battled league leaders Ellington.  The Cougars fought hard but were upended 4 to 2.  Again, Gattuso and Dey found the net, the later on a penalty late in the match.  Up next the Cougars travel to Illing for a night game at 6:30 on Thursday.
