  • The girls soccer team hosted rivals Ellington on Tuesday afternoon in a physical match up. The Cougars were disciplined between the lines and battled to get on the score sheet early in the first half. Julia Jaworski, Mikayla Evans, Leighana Ferrabelo, and Cassie Polansky all had outstanding performances throughout the game. The Cougars were able to pull away with only a few minutes left in the first half as Emerson Iacovelli assisted Arden Sansom to put the Cougars ahead. Throughout the second half, the Cougars displayed their dominance putting another three on the board before the final whistle. Katelyn Roux scored an incredible solo goal as she swerved the ball into the top corner from outside the box. Sam Grodovich assisted Emerson Iacovelli mid-way through the second half, and Arden Sansom put the icing on the cake tallying another late goal securing the Cougar victory. Throughout the match, the Cougar defense locked down any threats of an Ellington attack and played confident between the lines. Haley Butler kept the Cougars composed and was able to maintain the clean sheet with 8 saves on the day. The Cougars host their last home game of the season vs. Illing this afternoon. Come out and support the team.   

  • The TE boys soccer team took on the Wildcats of Ellington last night coming from behind to earn three points with a 3-2 victory. The Cougars allowed two first half goals for the first time all season, But they roared back in the second half to earn the win. Drew Monteserin found the back of the net early in the second half. Then it was Taylor Legault's turn after a nice passage of play along the right side of the field. Alex Ezedine started the move, Naol Tirfessa played a cheeky pass to Monteserin who crossed it into the box where Legault hammered it home sweetly. The third and final goal was Ezedine's by himself. He found himself in the box and slotted the ball past the keeper. The Cougars next game is on Thursday at Illing Middle School in Manchester.
