  • Yesterday afternoon, the lady Cougars traveled to East Hartford to take on the Falcons. The Cougars started strong with pressure from the midfield and forwards. The Cougars dominated all sixty minutes with goals in the first half coming from Marybeth Grasso, Haydin Courtois, and Taryn Suffish. Assists in the first half came from Candace Walsh and Sam Wunsch. As the Cougars approached the second half, the Cougars were able to seal the win with efforts from Mikayla Evans, Abby Peruccio, Leighana Ferrabelo and Huntyr Courtois. A few Cougar highlights include Haydin Courtois and Arden Sansom scoring their first goals of the season as well as TE's Rhianna O'Meara and Emerson Iacovelli leading the team with two assists. Additionally, Lexi Lilly added to the Cougar tally with two late goals on the day. Maria Galley maintained the shoutout and had two saves during the match. The Cougars look forward to their next match on Thursday at Sage Park.

  • The TE Boys soccer team was in action last night, taking on the Falcons of East Hartford.  The sun was out and the temperature was perfect for a soccer game as both teams scrapped away at each other in the first half.  John Montana was shredding the defense, but was unable to capitalize.  Finally, the Cougars were able to get on the score sheet.  Montana glided through the defense, his shot went off the post and ricocheted off a couple players to the feet of Jack Stricker.  After composing himself neatly in front of goal, he finished his chance smartly.  At the half the Cougars were up justifiably.  In the second half it was the Falcon side who pressed.  Ultimately, the Cougars defense broke ever so slightly after some indecision and communication errors.  The Falcon forward rushed in to take advantage of the situation and brought them level in the game.  Fewer chances in the second half meant that TE would have to settle for the draw, the second one of the season against East Hartford.  The Cougars next play this Thursday against Sage Park after school.  Please come out and cheer on the boys.
