12 - November 12, 2010
submitted by David Beaudette The U11 boys saved their best game for last.
They played a rematch against a very strong Ashland team on Saturday. Goals were scored by AJ Caggianelli and Aiden Donaghey. They also assisted on each other’s goals. Donaghey played half the game in goal, stopping shot after shot to ensure the win. Ian Morgenstern did duty in goal as well as in the field, playing well in both positions. Joe Carney didn’t let a stomachache stop him from playing tough on offense and defense. Matt DiPrizio had his game of the season, shining on offense as well as defense—a big hand to a young man who hadn’t even touched a soccer ball before this season. Eric Hardy did great as well, playing both offense and defense in his first year in travel soccer. We expect big things from them both in the spring. Joe Moore took multiple, hard body shots and kept getting up against a very physical Ashland

Shay is a sweet six year old female Rottweiler who came to our shelter as a result of a divorce. She is housetrained, good with kids, walks well on a leash, knows basic commands and enjoys going for rides in the car. She gets along well with dogs but, is not open to living with cats. Shay was given way too many treats in her life so will need several daily walks to help her get her weight to a healthy goal. Due to her weight issue, Shay is only able to climb a few stairs at present. She is not able to climb a large flight or jump in a car (with a boost she will love you for the ride). We are pretty certain
that as her weight issue is worked on, her mobility will pick up.Shay loves to be petted and will nudge you when you sto to tell you she wants more love! Shay will do well in a home with older children and a family who has rottie experience. She will also need a family that has time to walk her to help shed those pounds. If you think Shay would be a good addition to your family
and would like to meet her please apply online at www.arnne.org
. She is patiently waiting for her forever home

team, and played tough as nails. Zach DeBay, who runs for 40 minutes a game at midfield, played well again, all over the field. Younger brother Deven “LT” DeBay and Liam O’Connell continued strong play on defense, as they have all year. Victor Palazollo didn’t make the game, but a big hand goes to him for his hard work all season. Special thanks go to Jack Drolet and Max O’Dryna for helping the team when the schedule allowed. We have a great group of young men and we look for to getting back on the field this spring. Thank you also to the parents for all your time and cheering on the sidelines. With a playoff spot on the line, Pelham’s U14 soccer team traveled to Merrimack on Sunday. Despite playing a fantastic game, Pelham dropped a heartbreaking 1-0 decision when Merrimack scored with under 10 minutes to play. With their second straight 1-0 loss, Pelham finished in third place with a 6-2 record. Goalies Brian Gettings and Madison O’Dryna were stellar in net, making several spectacular saves. Defensively, Kyle Bettencourt, Kellan Brouder, Sam Holdsworth, and Jimmy Russo repeatedly turned away Merrimack’s fast-paced attack. The midfield play was anchored by Joe Costa, Josh Clark, and Aidan Walsh, the latter of who played through illness, forcing him to miss the previous four days of school. Through eight games, Pelham allowed a mere nine goals, while scoring 26 of their own. Thanks go out to Coach Tim Greenwood, and kudos go to the entire team for an exciting, successful season: forwards Eric Guinasso, Bailey Custeau, and Shannon Walsh,; midfielders Justin Beecher, Tim Trudel, Cam Holdsworth, Cory Snow, Eric Rossi, Collin Duff-Marsh, Walsh, Clark, and Costa; defenders Brooke Paradis, Brouder, Sam Holdsworth, Russo, and Bettencourt; and goalies Gettings and O’Dryna. At their home field, Raymond
Park, the Pelham U12 boys really got the job done with a decisive 2-0 win over the Litchfield Cougars. Shortly into the first half, a goal from Victor Romeo took the score to 1-0. Relentless offense was shown by Romeo, Cody Foulds, Lindsey Niemaszyk, Jack Fallon, Ben

Paquette, and Logan Ashley, which led to a second goal for Romeo in the second half. The Cougars did not make it easy, with several offensive drives that were beaten back by Pelham’s defenders Nick Kathios, Morgan Pratt, Elena and Victor Masterson, and Mark Rutherford; and Keepers Zac Rossi and Jack Frey. Although Pelham achieved the victory, they were unable to clinch their spot in the playoffs; so, unfortunately, this was their last game. Join me in congratulating the entire team on an amazing season that demonstrated their teamwork, sportsmanship, and love of the game. Also, many thanks go to the coaches Chuck Rossi and Aidan Fallon for their dedication to the team; your efforts are clear with a team this close and successful. And finally, a big shout out to the parents! We will look forward to watching this team in the spring! The U12 Puma girls were out in Suncook for their final game on Sunday, where they played to a heartbreaking 3-2 loss against the division’s best Suncook Dawgs. It was very fitting that the Pumas’ best effort of the season came against the best team in the group. The Dawgs took an early 1-0 lead, but the Pumas tied it quickly with a 30-yard blast from Amira Eid. The Pumas made their adjustments and played a solid game going forward. A penalty shot goal by Robin Leuteritz then put the Pumas up 2-1 early in the second half. The entire team worked together and did their jobs to help protect the lead. The Dawgs pressed forward and scored two goals at the end to take the lead and the game. The striker position was fulfilled by the speedy Emily Hayes and Jordan Roy. Working the middle of the field was the tireless group of Gabby Harris, Eid, Leuteritz, Kiera Garrett, and Brittany Ducharme. A relentless effort in goal was offered by Sarah Brown, who stopped a barrage of shots. Sarah’s fullback positions were centered by Courtney Kirsch and flanked by Katie Kirsch, Holly Feola,

Megan Landry, and Hanna Beaudette. The Pumas’ season ended with a deceivingly promising two wins and six losses, as each of their losses were close games that could have gone either way. They look forward to the upcoming spring season to represent their town once again. The Pelham U10 Lady Red Bulls wrapped up their season at home against Hudson with a spectacular game of well-played soccer. The girls showed Hudson and all those that were spectators that they were a force to contend with. Persistent shooter Aria O’Connell scored early after some great passing from forwards Jillian Schwab and Molly Jackson. O’Connell, Schwab, and Jackson tirelessly got to every ball in their area to gain possession and get it back toward Hudson’s goalie, who endured countless shots. Sidney Todd and Tallie Carney used teamwork and speed to clear balls on defense, and goalie Jessica Blanchard protected net and expertly cleared the ball to keep the other team scoreless. Joslyn Isabelle, Taylor Casazza, and Jessica Amidon gave the Hudson girls a challenge in getting the ball to the scoring zone numerous times, thus wearing out the other team’s defense. Jackson nailed Hudson’s net with a beautiful, one-touch shot off a nice, long throw-in from Carney, giving the Lady Bulls another score. Schwab took on goalie later in game and did not let any ball by her, no matter how hard it was kicked, while Emma Schuler showed off her fancy footwork offensively and later aggressively defended with ‘power- booter’ Blanchard. Coaches Sandi O’Connell and Frank Carney couldn’t be more proud of the performance their young team showed after much hard work in practice all season long. The Lady Red Bulls made a statement in their last game: “Watch out for us next spring.”
Undefeated Season for Phantoms FC
submitted by Jennifer Correa The Phantoms FC U9 Coed soccer team finished an undefeated season with a 4-2 win over the Barrington U9 Coed RQ team on Saturday, October 30. Coached by Drew Warwick for only their second season in Division 2 of the Granite State Youth Soccer League, the children played hard, but fair. Based out of the The PhanZone in Hampstead, the young team members are Alex Fung, Andres Rosas, Erik Dahlgard, Madelyn Zubiel, Ethan Emerson (Hampstead), John Gouthro (Salem), Owen Bynum (Salem), Victor Palazzolo (Pelham), and Jocelyn Correa (Pelham). The whole team played well with great passes and a strong defensive line. “It was very exciting to watch. They have come a long way as a team,” said a parent. “Their hard work and dedication shows on the field. We are all very proud.” Throughout the fall season, they had an 8-0-0 record with tough wins over boys’ teams from Windham, Salem, and Atkinson, as well as multiple coed teams from Barrington.
The team is looking forward to competitive play this winter in the PhanZone’s U10 boys’ competitive winter league and potentially moving up to a U9 GSYSL Division 1 slot in the spring. Phantoms FC is still looking to add players to their rosters for the coming spring for all age groups. Tryouts are on Sundays and Tuesdays.
