Alvirne Girls’ Soccer Earns Playoff Spot
Alvirne finished the regular season with a tough loss against Spaulding on Tuesday, October 19, but they recorded a victory in their final regular season game against Concord on Friday, October 22. In a five-game match against Spaulding, the Broncos lost the first two games 13-25 and 15-25, won the next two 25-13 and 25-22, and dropped the fifth game 15-8. Katie Donovan was 21 for 21 at the service line with 12 points, four aces, 10 kills, eight digs, and one block, followed by Kayla Duval with five service points, 30 assists, 13 digs, and five kills; Laina Somero with seven kills; DJ Purcell with five service points, 16 digs, eight kills, and one block; and Cassie Larocque with seven service points, one ace, nine digs, and 15 kills. The Broncos bounced right back, however, with a victory against Concord to end the season on Friday, October 22. The Broncos took this match in four games. This victory solidified the fourth spot for Alvirne, but also proved to be a big night for Cassie Larocque, who recorded 12 kills, including her 500th career kill, and the Concord team graciously allowed the Broncos to present her with flowers and a game ball. Larocque joins a select group of only 19 other volleyball players in the state of New Hampshire to record 500 kills in their career. The Broncos will have hosted Dover on Wednesday, October 27, and if victorious, they will be hosting the second round of the playoffs at 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 30, at Alvirne High School.
by Sue LaRoche On Friday, October 22, senior night for the Alvirne girls’ team, the Broncos, behind two goals by senior captain Amanda Roberts, defeated Spaulding, earning a berth in the NHIAA Class L soccer playoffs. The Broncos will have played Londonderry on Wednesday, October 27, and if successful, will advance to the quarterfinals on Saturday, October 30, at 3 p.m. against Salem. The Broncos said “thank you and good luck” to their
graduating seniors, including: Captain Kaelyn Babin, Nikki Blake, Laura Boucher, Katelyn Fortier, Nicole Godschall, Captain Emily Gosselin, Captain Amanda Roberts, Taylor Troy, Jamie Martineau, and Mona Brown. The Broncos opened the scoring when Kendall Brigham
set up Amanda Roberts, who beat the Spaulding goalie to take a 1-0 lead at the 22:49 mark of the first half. Roberts scored the only other tally when she had a breakaway goal at the 21:56 mark of the second half. Goalie Katelyn Fortier had two outstanding saves in the contest amid her eight saves for the game. The Broncos finished the regular season with a record of 6-8-2.
