  • 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 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.
