Campbell Soccer on Fire First Win Evades Lady Broncos
by Sue LaRoche The Alvirne Lady Broncos played their second game of the season and while the level of play was improved over their opening game, the girls still lost 2-0 to Hollis Brookline. The score was knotted at 0-0 at the end of the first half but at the 26:05 mark, Hollis Brookline snuck one past goalie Tori LaRoche (14 total saves on the day) to take a 1-0 lead. The Broncos mounted a comeback attempt but with 2:31, Hollis Brookline scored again against goalie Kaela Craven (eight total saves) to take a 2-0 lead. Kraven made a

couple of outstanding saves in net, keeping the Broncos in the game. Livia Gosselin played well on the defensive side of the field and Heather Barclay played well offensively. The Broncos managed only five shots on goal while Hollis Brookline had 29 total shots. Rain and a slick field were not friendly to the Broncos when the traveled to Keene on Tuesday, September 6 as they took a 3-0 loss to move their record to 0-3 on the young season. Play in the first half was sloppy and with some defensive breakdowns, Keene was able to score three times. Goalie Kaela Craven made six saves in the first half. “We played a very timid and

passive first half,” said Coach Lance McAdam who along with captain Kaela Craven spoke sharply to the girls and demanded better from them in the second half. The Broncos managed to keep Keene scoreless in the second half as goalie Tori LaRoche had 12 saves for a total of 15 for the game. “The team learned that
hard way that we need to be aggressive for the full 80 minutes and we look to take this lesson into Friday’s game against Concord,” explained McAdam. Defensively Kaela Craven and Katie Gillum had solid performances along with Marie Morrier and Kendall Brigham. The Broncos managed only two shots on goal while Keene had 33 shots on goal. Alvirne hopes to collect the first victory of the season on Friday as they take on Concord at home.
by Marc Ayotte Boys Soccer The Campbell’s boys’ soccer team posted their second consecutive shutout when they blanked visiting Fall Mountain by a 2-0 score, on Friday, September 2. The Cougars used goals from defenseman Justin Prindle and forward Ian Hutchinson to improve their season record to 2-1, after an opening day loss to Bow. First year Cougar head coach Steve Levine indicated that his team was “starting to move the ball better and looking to move in and attack instead of holding (the ball) in the middle third of the field.” Levine also noted that he was impressed with his goal keeper’s attitude. After a tough opening game when Cougar goalie Jacob Morgan allowed eight goals, he has settled down nicely, registering back to back goose eggs. Fall Mountain came out early and controlled the tempo of the game with swift passing and ball possession that led to the game’s best scoring opportunity at the 9:00 mark. Jacob Morgan’s point blank save on the Wildcat’s Hayden Scott seemed to be a catalyst for the Cougars to go on the offensive. With Campbell’s Billings and Heaton draped at the goal crease, defenseman Justin Prindle’s shot on goal from the outer limits of the attack third was mishandled by the Fall Mountain net minder and trickled in to give the home team the 1-0 lead, half way through the first half. Campbell continued to dominate the flow of the game, but was unable to add to their lead before intermission.
At about the 5:00 mark of the second half, Fall Mountain’s forward Chris Brown was nearly sent in alone with a great center of the field lead pass that was broken up by an even greater defensive effort by Cougar senior back Kyle Mun. At around the 19:00 point, junior Ian Hutchinson launched a long shot from the sideline just in front of the Campbell bench. With perfect trajectory and speed, the ball sailed over the outstretched arms of the Wildcat goalie, giving Campbell all they would need to preserve the victory. With continuous in-game coaching along the sidelines, Levine at one point was heard to exclaim; “Timmy Heaton is hustling his butt off out there.” The Cougar coach commended his senior captain for “controlling the tempo and setting up the offense and defense with his hustle.” As far as assessing the team’s performance relative to the first game of the season, Heaton noted; “it’s definitely a lot better, we’re spreading the ball out a lot more. We’re not where we want to be but getting there.” Levine praised his team’s defensive effort, citing stopper Keegan Tanguay, Conor Douglas, Ben Billings and Captain Kyle Mun with having excellent games. Once again, the opposing coach was very

team improved their record to 3-0 on the season with an 8-0 thrashing of host Mascenic, on Friday September 2. CHS jumped out to a 2-0 lead before most spectators unfolded their lawn chairs on the sidelines, just three minutes into play. The red and white scoring onslaught was led by Captain Olivia Planty who has scored goals in each of Campbell’s three games this season. The Cougar striker lit up the Viking goalie four times, pushing her team leading total to six goals. Planty also performed ice hockey’s version of a ‘natural hat trick’ when she scored three consecutive goals. Adding to the accomplishment was that she scored them in the game’s first ten minutes. Freshman Lilia Vinskus played a very big
offensive roll as well. The Cougar rookie tallied her first two goals of the year in helping CHS remain undefeated. Campbell’s Hanna Neild also matched teammate Planty’s feat of scoring in three consecutive games as she notched her fourth goal of the 2011 campaign. Erika Guilbeau chipped in with her first goal to round out the scoring. Picking up Cougar assists were Jessica Belzil, Sydney Crema, Caitlin Heaton and Casey Davies. Defensively, head coach Bob Gannon noted that “the entire Campbell defense played well and is starting to play better as a unit.” In picking up their third shutout in as many games, the Cougars have outscored their opponents by a resounding 14-0. Shannon Lavigne and Heather Baron combined their efforts, each playing one half, in keeping the Vikings off the score board. In what could have been considered as the
proverbial ‘trap game,’ the Campbell girls embarked on their third successive road game, Tuesday, September 6, to do battle with the Cougars of Kearsarge Regional, in a 6 p.m. game under the lights. Coach Gannon needed to keep his team focused on the game at hand and not look ahead three days to the highly anticipated war against last year’s finalist Bow High. The Lady Cougars did indeed stay focused as they remained undefeated on the season with a 5-1 victory. Leading Campbell in scoring once again was senior Olivia Planty. In an incredible early season display of offensive prowess, the Cougar captain recorded her second ‘hat trick’ in as many games. Her three goal effort gives her nine goals on the year. Amazingly, as was the case in her previous game, Planty registered her team’s first three goals of the contest, with two of the goals coming just 40 seconds apart. Adding second half goals for Campbell were Hannah Nield (fifth of the year) and Lilia Vinskus, with her third in the last two games.
