submitted by Marc Ayotte The Campbell girls’ soccer team faced their toughest competition of the season last Friday, September 9, with a home contest against Bow High. The game was a rematch of the 2010 title game when the Cougars put the finishing touches on their championship run with a 2-1 victory over the Falcons. Bow came into Cougar territory trying to avenge that loss from nearly a year ago. Friday’s game was decided by a penalty kick opportunity that was converted by Campbell’s midfielder Casey Mellen midway through the second half, the host Cougars defeated the Falcons by the identical score of 2-1. The win improved CHS’s record to 5-0 on the season while, Bow suffered their first loss and fell to 3-1. Thirteen minutes into play, Bow had the game’s best scoring opportunity, but a fine play by defensive stalwart Liz Pettis thwarted a potential break-in by a Falcon striker. Three minutes later, Cougar scoring phenom Olivia Planty notched her 10th goal of the season to give Campbell the 1-0 lead. Head coach Bob Gannon knew that Bow would have an aggressive game plan and felt that the Falcons carried the flow of the game in the first half despite falling behind on the score board. “Bow is a very physical and well coached team and (they) controlled the game early, commented Gannon. After pressuring Campbell with several multiple attacks, Bow striker Missy Gloekler was able to send her team into the half time intermission tied at one, when she scored in the 39th minute.

coaching staff that included tightening the defense and moving the ball on the ground more effectively on the offensive end, the Cougars seemed to play with a little less intimidation. The most pivotal and ultimately crucial play of the game occurred at the 22:00 mark. Campbell middie Casey Mellen was slide tackled from behind in the box by a Bow back, resulting in a penalty kick for the home red and white. The

AHS Girls Soccer Can’t Notch a Win

by Sue LaRoche The Alvirne Broncos took another one on the

chin on Friday September 9 with a 7-0 loss to visiting Concord. Alvirne was outshot 14-3 in the first half with defender Kaela Craven saving a sure goal as keeper Tori LaRoche (20 saves) came out of the net on a challenge and Kraven took a shot solidly off her torso to keep the Concord lead to 3-0. The Broncos managed four shots in the second half but could not put the ball in the net as Concord scored another four goals for the 7-0 victory. On Tuesday, September 13, Alvirne hosted

Timberlane and played a much-improved game with what Coach Lance McAdam described as a “good comeback after a flat Friday game against Concord.” The Broncos allowed two goals per half but goalkeeper Kaela Craven had 26 saves on the night including a couple of fantastic diving saves, keeping the Broncos to within striking distance. “This is a young and inexperienced team

playing against some of the best teams in the state,” said McAdam, “and they are learning what it takes to compete at this level.” McAdam complimented his team for glimpses of what they can do and how they need to play at all times. Playing well for the Broncos were Sarah Rossetti, Heather Barkley and Tori LaRoche. The Broncos will be at home again on September 23 when they take on Nashua South.

spot kick, which comes from 12 yards out, was rifled by the Bow goalie just inside the post to her left, putting the Cougars up 2-1 (see photo). Bow’s best opportunity to tie the game with 10:30 remaining in the game, but Gloekler’s bid for her second goal of the game was turned back by Campbell keeper Shannon Lavigne, who finished the game with eight saves. After the game, coach Gordon acknowledged Mellen and fellow midfielder, sophomore Holly Lesperance, as being

boys’ soccer team visited Pelham, the Lady Cougars hosted the Lady Pythons in the girls’ version of the inter-division match-up. With relative ease, the Cougars remained perfect on the season, improving to 6-0 with a 5-0 win. Olivia Planty continued scoring at a prolific pace, registering yet another three goal performance, giving her 13 goals on the season. Freshman Hannah Nield and sophomore Sydney Crema rounded out the Campbell scoring. Picking up assists for the Cougars were Jessica Belzil, Liz Pettis, and Emily Moreau. Playing very well on defense were Liz Pettis, Ashley Gannon, Savanah Cavanaugh, and Briana Silck. The Cougars jumped out to a 2-0 lead within the first 4:30 of the game giving head coach Bob Gannon an opportunity to rest some of his starters; “the entire Cougar bench was able to get playing time today and played a strong game.” Goal Keepers Shannon Lavigne and Heather Baron combined for the team’s fourth shutout. The victory places Campbell on top of Division III, almost a full percentage point ahead of Belmont and Hopkinton in the state ratings. The Cougars have a difficult stretch ahead of them as they face Hopkinton twice in addition to Prospect Mountain, with all three games taking place in an eleven day span. Campbell will host Hopkinton on Tuesday, September 27.

The Hudson Litchfield Bears 3U team won their first game of the season, defeating the Manchester East Cobras by a final score of 13-7. The Bears got on the board first on a touchdown run by Keegan Murphy. After giving up a touchdown and an extra point to go down by a score of 7-6 the Bears struck back on a long touchdown run by AJ Bryson. Playing well for the Bears on defense was Liam O’Neil, Nathin Carboneau, Brendan Graham, Trent Leduc, Brady Simard, and Dominic Willard.

On the offensive side of the ball the Bears were led by Tim Cronin, Jeff Thompson, Zack Connerty, Griffin Layman, Ryan Moore, Ed Britte, Nate Jacobson and Matt Towle. The 6U Hudson Litchfield Bears 6U team opened the season with a 38-13 win over the Manchester South Sabres. With the first play of the game resulting in a touchdown, the Bears continued the momentum throughout the first half of the game. With such a large lead at halftime, many different Bears had the opportunity to carry the ball in the second half of the game. The schedule gets tougher from here, as the Bears face a very good Salem team next week. The players are up for the challenge and are excited about their next game.
