by Sue LaRoche On Monday, October 17, the Lady Broncos made up a rained out contest against Nashua North at home and lost 1-0. The Broncos had several good opportunities to score but as has been the case this season, they couldn’t manage to find the back of the net. The Titans scored early in the second half on an uncleared rebound off a save by goalie Tori LaRoche who had 20 saves on the night. Playing well for the Broncos were Sabrina Carter, Alisha Gillis, Krissy Rowe, Jocelyn Richardson and Daeghan

Stone. On Tuesday, October 18, senior night for the Broncos, the girls battled to a 0-0 tie in double overtime. The Broncos got a great game from center midfielders Daeghan Stone and Jocelyn Richardson and goalie Tori LaRoche made 19 saves for her first varsity career shutout. The Broncos had several great opportunities to score but could not convert as they are still searching for their first victory of the season. Coach Lance McAdam was pleased with the, “competitiveness in the game, which led to better output from the entire team.” The Broncos will

graduate five seniors, who will compete in their final game on Friday October 21 against winless Spaulding. Seniors include Captain Kaela Craven, Jess Roberts, Jocelyn Richardson, Colleen Bushnach and Krissy Rowe. “This was a nice tribute to five great seniors who provided a great example of leadership, hard work and determination,” said McAdam.
