10 - September 16, 2011
by Marc Ayotte The first coach that current Campbell Athletic Director John
Patterson hired after moving up from James Island High School in South Carolina has proven out to be a diamond in the rough, or in this case; on the soccer grass. Patterson enlisted the services of 38-year veteran soccer coach Steve Levine just days prior to the beginning of the season. Levine brings with him an impressive history of soccer experience from his stint at Methuen High in Massachusetts. Excited with the anticipation of what the new Cougar coach will mean to the program, Patterson said of Levine; “I think we are absolutely incredibly lucky to get him.” Although the Cougars endured an auspicious beginning under the new head coach with a lopsided defeat to Bow on opening day, Campbell has since turned things around and is turning in exceptional defensive efforts. On September 9, the CHS defense continued to stifle opposing offenses, this time putting the hurt on Kearsarge Regional. After a scoreless and also lackluster first half, Campbell on the strength of goals by Ian Hutchinson and a blistering shot by Michael Vigeant that beat the ‘opposing Cougar’ goalie high and to the right, recorded their third consecutive victory as well as their third successive 2-0 shutout. In picking up his third goose egg of the season, Cougar keeper Jacob Morgan lowered what was an astronomical 8.00 goals against average after the first game debacle, to a very respectable 2.00, through four games. Campbell made the short road trip to Pelham on Tuesday, September 13, for an inter-divisional game with the host Pythons. After a first half that saw both teams deadlocked at two goals each, the visiting Cougars exploded for three second half goals on the

way to a 5-2 victory, increasing their consecutive win streak to four games. Ben Billings got Campbell on the board first at the two- minute mark after a great centering pass from senior forward Michael Vigeant. A half minute after an in-close scoring chance by Cougar J.P. Galvez went unanswered, PHS tied the score at one on a goal by the ever hustling Python striker, Derek Defranzo. After Galvez received a highly questionable yellow card for goalie interference, Pelham’s Harley Kearney slid a shot past the left side of Cougar keep Jacob Morgan to put the home team up 2-1. In what was a fast paced, offensive minded half, the Pythons nearly took a two-goal lead at the 22:00 mark, if not for an excellent defensive effort by Cougar defenseman Kyle Mun. After ‘Spalding’ took an ‘AstroTurf-like bounce’ over the head of goalie Jacob Morgan, Mun cleared the ball from the crease just before it crossed the goal line. The ensuing few minutes belonged to Campbell’s forward Ian Hutchinson. The Cougar junior almost tied the score with an excellent header and then nearly cashed-in on a free kick from deep on the right side, forcing Pelham goalie Dan Goes to make a nice save. Then with persistence finally paying a dividend, Hutchinson knotted the score at 2. His goal with just under seven minutes remaining in the half saw intermission visit both teams with the score still tied. Feeding off his first half performance, Hutchinson began the second half with a kick from midfield that sailed just over Python goalie Goes outstretched hands as well as the cross bar. The wheels soon began to fall off the Python offense as the Cougars offensive pressure began to pin Pelham in their defensive third of the field. Conor Douglas had an excellent throw-in towards the Pelham goal, which created a tremendous scoring opportunity for senior Jacob Mercier. After that near miss, the Cougars, just minutes later, took the lead for good on a goal by Jonathan Donaghey. The Campbell freshman beat a sliding Goes with a grass-hugging shot to the left corner of the net, making the score 3-2.
As Campbell continued to dominate the game both offensively and defensively, Jacob Mercier on a great feed from Donaghey, hit the crossbar at the 25:00 mark, keeping the Pythons within a goal. Coming right back down field, Python Derek Defranzo fed teammate Kearney whose attempt at tying the game from inside the crease was vacuumed in by CHS goalie Morgan. Moments later, Campbell added an insurance goal off the foot of J.P. Galvez with the assist going to captain Timothy Heaton. With six

Cougar Ben Billings #6, scores his second goal of the game as Pelham’s back Pat McLean makes a valiant attempt to keep the ball out of the Python net
minutes remaining in the game Hutchinson connected with Billings on a beautiful pass, but the sophomore’s header did not get by Goes. However, three minutes later, the two did successfully hook- up as Billings closed out the Cougar scoring with his second tally of the afternoon, with Ian Hutchinson picking up the helper. After redirecting Hutchinson’s pass towards the goal, Billings, while in the crease got tangled up with Pelham defenseman Pat McLean’s unsuccessful attempt at keeping the ball from trickling to the back of the net; “It was a nice cross by Ian” recalled an almost apologetic Billings, “not a pretty goal but they count”. (see photo) After the game, Cougar coach Steve Levine revealed that his offense has room for improvement, saying the team is “still not working together, despite scoring a lot of goals today.” Once again, Levine highlighted the effort put forth by his four defensemen; Captain Kyle Mun, Justin Prindle, Conor Douglas and sophomore Keegan Tanguay. Although both goals that Campbell allowed were results of defensive miscues, Levine maintained that the team’s four- game winning streak is the product of a “rock solid defense.” With a record of four wins against a single loss, Campbell moved up to sixth place in the Division III standings; a mere tenth of a point away from a fourth place tie with Somersworth.

Boys Cross Country officially left the station on September 10, competing in a relay meet at Freestyle Farms in Amherst. This features the youngest team in NH Division 1 as well as the only Division 1 cross country squad who will be competing without a senior on the team. The train-ride is to be tenacious for sure, with a hopeful destination of the “Alvirne-uncharted” tracks of the Meet of Champions in early November. The Souhegan relays represent the first race of the season, and a measuring stick for what teams are in shape and which have work to do. Three teams of three runners are assembled by each school, where they battle on the undulating terrain of Freestyle Farm. With six weeks ‘til the big-time

meets, it wasn’t necessarily a do-or-die scenario for the Broncos, however some positive results can be taken from the meet, as well as some learning tips. Sophomore Cody Ross clocked the fastest time of the day for the Broncos completing the difficult 4Kcourse in (14:58) juniors Aaron Bellomo and Brandon Dumais finished second and third for AHS running (15:03) and (15:10) respectively. Rounding out the Varsity top seven were sophomore Connor Sakati (15:22), freshman Ryan Doyle (15:47), sophomore Cam Murphy (16:17) and sophomore Anthony Cestrone (16:20). Although the highlight of the day debatably came in the JV race, in which, freshman Frank Cunniff gutted out a seventh place overall finish in (15:54). The Broncos have an invitational meet at Mines Falls Saturday, September 17.
