Pelham Pumas Net Their First Win of the Season

submitted by Dave Beaudette It was another beautiful weekend of weather

for youth soccer, and it was a beautiful weekend for the Pelham Pumas who picked up their first win of the season, beating the Merrimack Blizzard 2-0. The Blizzard came to town and put up a great fight for the full 60 minutes, but the Pumas worked hard and held strong in their defensive zone, with strong play from Katie Kirsch and Hanna Beaudette. They both helped to drive the ball back up the field to give our strikers a chance at some great shots. The first goal of the game came from a blistering shot from Robyn Leuteritz, who found the corner of the goal. Robyn played a solid game at the center midfield position and helped to control the tempo of the game. The second goal came from an exciting breakaway by the speedy Kiera Garrett. She collected the ball at midfield and it was off to the races. Kiera shot the ball while in full stride and snuck it past the Blizzard’s goaltender, who had come out of the goal to cut off the angle. The Pumas’ coaches credit the win to the girls’ great attitude and their effort at practices. The Pumas can be seen next on Saturday, October 16, in Exeter with a 2:45 p.m. start. The U10 Lady Red Bulls fought hard in their game against Hudson. They matched up well with solid play from the entire team. Tally Carney showed off her endurance and tenacity on both sides of the ball in offense and defense. Sidney Todd put in a nice “one-touch” goal, and later, Jocelyn Isabelle got one by the Hudson goalie. Aria O’Connell had many great shots on net as well. Jessica Blanchard worked hard in net and on defense, and Jillian Schwab saved some tough

shots in net while also putting in aggressive plays on offense. The offensively strong Hudson girls got many shots off late in the game while Emma Shuler was in net, and she did well defending them. Taylor Casazza and Jessica Amidon both put in tremendous effort, both offensively and defensively, to the very end. The Lady Red Bulls will play again in Rye on October 16 at 12 p.m. The U-14 Pelham travel soccer team kept their record clean this weekend, moving to 5-0, with two exciting wins on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, the “Battle of the Unbeatens” took place as undefeated Hampstead came to town. Pelham struck 10 minutes into the game as Shannon Walsh crossed a beautiful ball to Eric Guinasso,

who popped it into the back of the net. The score stood at 1-0 at the half with keeper Brian Gettings turning away every Hampstead threat. With 20 minutes to go in the game, Tim Trudel headed a nifty pass forward to a charging Guinasso, who deked two defenders with some impressive footwork, then buried a hard shot by the Hampstead keeper. Guinasso’s second goal proved to be the game winner. Although Hampstead put a late tally on

the board, Pelham’s second-half goalie Madison O’Dryna deftly grabbed every other challenge they sent her way. On Sunday, a tough Hudson team came to Pelham and it was a back-and-forth game the whole way. Trailing early 1-0, center midfielder Joe Costa slotted a ball through to Eric Guinasso, who beat the Hudson goalie to get to 1-1. Hudson answered back to take the lead before Aidan Walsh dropped a ball in for Guinasso, who again potted a goal to even the score to 2-2. Early in the second half, Hudson again took the lead 3-2, but guess who answered? Joe Costa sent a through ball to “the scoring machine” Guinasso, who put in the tying goal (his second hat trick and 12th goal of the season). With five minutes to go in the game, tied 3-3, midfielder Aidan Walsh took a pass from Justin Beecher and sent a high, arching shot into the net for the 4-3 win. Defenders Kyle Bettencourt, Jimmy Russo, Sam Holdsworth, and Josh Clark played fantastic in both games. Midfielder Cory

Snow turned in a fine, hustling performance in Sunday’s win. The Pythons now stand tied for first place with Merrimack Soccer Club and will return to the pitch this holiday weekend at the 28th Annual Columbus Day Invitational Tournament in Nashua.

On a crisp, fall afternoon, the Pelham U12

boys’ soccer team had a well-fought battle against the Nashua World Cup soccer club. Although they lost the game, it was not due to lack of effort. We had great offense attack partnered with outstanding defensive play. Leading the offense were Victor Romeo, Jack Fallon, Victor Masterson, Ben Paquette, and Max Odryna, just to name a few. With several shots on goal and many assists, Pelham showed no mercy out on the field. They made Nashua earn both of their goals with their tenacious defense and never-give-up attitude. Defensive stars included both keepers Zac Rossi and Jack Frey, as well as Morgan Pratt and Nick Kathios. The U12 team will be participating in a Soccer Tournament this coming weekend, October 9-11, in Nashua. The U11 boys’ game this past Sunday was a great match-up as expected. It was a hard-fought game between Pelham and Henniker, who Pelham lost to the previous weekend. Henniker scored first, but Pelham battled back to even the match with a goal by AJ Caggianelli. Adien Donaghey was strong in goal the entire game. Joe Moore, Joe Carney, Max O’Dryna, Deven DeBay, and Zach DeBay did double-duty on offense and defense. Matt Diprizio, Liam O’Connell, and Eric Hardy held the Henniker offense from scoring the rest of the game. Victor Palazzolo and Jack Drolet both worked tirelessly to score on the stubborn Henniker defense. It took an amazing stop by the Henniker goalie with less than 30 seconds in the game to keep Pelham from winning the match. It was a great soccer game to watch. Our next game is Saturday, October 16, at 2 p.m. in Pelham at the new soccer fields.

submitted by Doreen Rossi The U14 and the U12 boys’ soccer teams from the Pelham Soccer Club participated in the Nashua World Cup Columbus Day Tournament this past weekend. Both teams played intense games and went up against some tough challenges. Most games were a one-goal decision, and a coordinated team effort on everyone’s part kept them in close contention for the entire weekend. The U14 boys went up against South Shore Stingrays on Saturday morning for a win of 4-0. They faced Oyster River on Saturday afternoon. They held the score to 0-0 until a goal in the second half, putting Oyster River up by one, which was the final score of the game. Late Sunday afternoon, they faced Windham, and with aggressive plays on both teams, the score ended in a 2-2 tie. Congratulations to the entire team, led by Coach Tim Greenwood, for exhibiting a great team effort. Congratulations to our offensive line of Eric Guinasso, Bailey Custeau, and Shannon Walsh; our midfield of Justin Beecher, Aidan Walsh, Joe Costa, Eric Rossi, Cam Holdsworth, Tim Trudel, and Collin Duff-Marsh; our defensive lineup of Kellan Brouder, Jimmy Russo, Josh Clark, Kyle Bettencourt, and Sam Holdsworth; and our goalies Brian Gettings and Maddie O’Dryna.

Our U12 players, led by coaches Chuck Rossi and Aidan Fallon, made it to the first round of the playoffs. They played Litchfield on Saturday morning and the Noreaster Academica on Sunday morning, followed by Granite FC Vipers on Sunday afternoon. Their team effort pulled off wins all three times. They went up against Nashua World Cup on Monday morning in the first round of playoffs; they held the score to 1-1 and went into double overtime. With still no score, they went into a penalty kick shootout. NWC won it with the PKs. Zac Rossi was the goalie for the showdown and held tough. The U12 team played an incredible game with a lot of heart. Congratulations to the entire team: our offensive line of Vic Romeo, Ben Paquette, Max O’Dryna, Logan Ashley, Jack Fallon, Dylan Sacca, Cody Foulds, and Lindsey Niemaszyk; our defensive line of Morgan Pratt, Elana Masterson, Vic Masterson, Mark Rutherford, and Nick Kathios; and our keepers Zac Rossi and Jack Frey.
