  • 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.
