  • The Lady Cougars took home a hard fought 0-0 tie yesterday afternoon against #1 seed Tolland in the CRAL. The game conditions were cold, wet, and windy as the Lady Cougars marched on to the field for their second to last game of the season. In the first half, the Cougars had only a few chances with a majority of the balls tangled up by the Tolland defenders. Chances late in the second half came from the foot of Lexi Wheeler off of two corner kicks. Opportunities arose from across the midfield and forward positions including: Sarah Gordon, Marybeth Grasso, Taryn Suffish, and Sam Wunsch. While the match was ultimately an offensive stalemate, the true game-play came from the Cougar defenders as their performance was arguably the best all season. The player of the game was shared by Candace Walsh and Maria Galley. Walsh prevented numerous attacks from Tolland, tackling Tolland players play after play and even demonstrating her complete athleticism by chasing down a brake-away attempt. As well, Galley held an astonishing 16 saves on the afternoon and ruthlessly commanded the TE back four in securing the clean sheet. Additionally, Ellinor Edstrom and Megan Martin also deserve an applause on the day as Tolland made countless attempts that were ultimately denied by the calm and collected wing-backs. The Lady Cougars look forward to their next and final regular season game against JFK at 3:45. Come out and support the squad!

  • The TEMS Boys soccer team played their final game of the season last night, beating Tolland 2-1 on the night.  Due to weather and other scheduling issues, the game was started promptly at 3:30 and two 30 minute running periods were used.  Needless to say, there was little time out there for nothing else...That being said, the Cougars pushed Tolland to the brink and came out on top.  Goals were scored on either side of halftime by Sam Meleshenko and Aadi Dey.  The first was blasted by the Tolland keeper, while the second was off a deft touch from the chest and a calm finish in front of goal.  It was the last game for the 8th graders who all got the opportunity to start and finish the match.  The Cougars overall record for the season was 4-5-2, while winning the last two games.  Congratulations on finishing the season strong.
