  • Yesterday afternoon, the lady Cougars kicked off against East Hartford in a rainy match. The Cougars started off the match strong and proved to be relentless in their pursuit for a win. The lady Cougars tallied an astounding 7-0 win over their opponents. Strong midfield possession came from Emerson Iacovelli, Abby Peruccio, and Mikayla Evans. The flanks kept East Hartford on their toes with threatening crossing into the box from Leighana Ferrabelo, Chion Pollard, and Ritika Abburi. The game was one of 'firsts' as Katelyn Roux, Haley Testa, and Huntyr Courtois found the scoreboard for the first time this season. Additionally, 8th grader Emily Ledger tallied a wonderful goal off an assist from Sarah Gordon. Leading the pack with 3 points on the day was Lexi Lilly. Gordon posted a total of two assists on the day with additional assists coming from the feet of the strikers Elise Suffish and Katelyn Roux. Outstanding performance goes to Hailey Testa, Huntyr Courtois, and Megan Martin who played exceptional in the midfield and helped to secure the Cougar victory. Finally, Haley Butler was able to secure her second clean sheet of a season and posted one save on the day. The Cougars look forward to their next game at Sage Park on Thursday.
