TE Morning News - 10/20/17 
  • Good morning TE. I was looking through last year’s yearbook and I noticed that all three grades chose soccer as their favorite sport. If you were one of those who love the game, I have a treat for you. Next Friday, at 6 pm on the soccer fields at Rye Street, the South Windsor High School Boys Soccer Team is playing their rival, Manchester, under the lights. This is a once a year event that draws over 500 fans, so please come join us. Cost is only $2 to attend, and if you come in your South Windsor Soccer jersey or t-shirt, you get in free. You can’t beat that! Last time we played Manchester, we won 1-0 in overtime, so this game should be a battle. See you then! 
  • Joke of the week: Hello TE, it's time for the joke of the week. Why did the man put a clock under his desk? He wanted to work Over Time!!!!

  • The Cougars matched up against Sage Park yesterday afternoon and took home a 3-1 win. The Cougars played arguably their best soccer of the season dominating possession in the first half with precision passes from Taryn Suffish, Rhianna O'Meara, Emerson Iacovelli, Lexi Wheeler, and Sam Wunsch. The Cougars relentless pressure led to their first goal as Taryn Suffish found the foot of Marybeth Grasso for the Cougars first of the day. Moments later, an ambitious throw in from Lexie Wheeler led the speedy Suffish in to space as she skillfully sped by the Sage Park defenders. The solo effort extended the lead 2-0. Later in the game, Rhianna O'Meara placed a through ball to Grasso giving the striker her second goal on the day. During the second half, remarkable defense from Candace Walsh, Megan Martin, and Ellinor Edstrom maintained the Cougar lead. Outstanding play throughout the game was had by Emily Ledger, Iniya Raja, and Lexi Lilly. The Lady Cougars look forward to their next away game on Tuesday against JFK.

  • The TE Boys Soccer team battled Sage Park last night, coming away with a 5-0 victory.  The first half was blinding due to the low sun, but the Cougars pushed through to put four past the Chargers keeper.  Ben Bernstein opened up the scoring, followed by Aiden Iacovelli, John Montana, with a Neymar-esque free kick, going just around the wall, and Andrew Bell, who got some time out on the right wing.  In the second half the cougars laid off the throttle and only tallied one additional goal.  Aadi Dey finished nicely with his left foot bringing the Cougars total to five.  The Cougars still have two games remaining next week and serve as host to JFK on Tuesday and Tolland on Thursday.  Hope you can come and cheer on the boys.
