‘Oliv-Trick’ Paces Cougars over Conant


Broncos Prove to be Road Worthy


by Sue LaRoche The Broncos went on the road to take on


Division 3 Pelham and managed put a strangle hold on the Pythons scoring early and often for a 62-22 drubbing. The Broncos ran out to a 35-0 lead in the first


quarter, scoring enough points to win the game and added another 13 points in the second quarter for a 48-8 lead at the half. Alvirne scored on their first possession when


Josh Cohen (2-2 for 76 yards) hit Tony Beaulieu for a 50-yard touchdown followed by a 27-yard strike to Andrew Stevens. Brandon Rule rushed the ball 25 yards for another touchdown.


Not to be outdone, the defense scored twice


Olivia Planty (#9 far left with hair flying) executes a beautiful header, on a nice feed from Casey Mellen, beating the Oriole goalie. Te goal was one of 5 the Cougar senior scored on the day.


submitted by Marc Ayotte Campbell scoring sensation Olivia Planty performed the girls’ soccer version of NHL great Alexander Ovechkin’s “Ovech-trick” when she poured in five goals in the Cougars 10-0 lambasting of rival Conant. De-winged and demoralized the visiting Orioles were sent back to Jaffrey, losers of 12 of fifteen games on the season. Meanwhile, the Lady Cougars improved to 13-2 and sit in second place, one game behind Bow in the loss column, in the D-3 standings. The beating began early when Planty scored the first of her handful of goals, a mere 27 seconds after the opening whistle. As it turned out, it could arguably be the quickest game-winning goal ever scored; as the Cougars offense could have taken the rest of the beautiful October afternoon


off. But instead of walking across the way to watch their male counterparts participate in their senior day game against Stevens, the ladies in red and white continued to pummel the Conant keep. Campbell fired 27 shots on net en route to the lopsided 10-goal win. In addition to Planty’s individual highlight reel-performance, which unofficially puts her within six goals of the Campbell girls’ single season scoring record, were the great games offered-up by freshmen Briana Silck and Emily Moreau. The first year tandem each notched two goals in the Cougar bombardment of the Conant cage. Sophomore Sydney Crema recorded the other Campbell goal. Defensively, Cougar keeps Shannon Lavigne and Heater Baron combined for their team’s seventh shutout of the season.

AHS Golfers Play in State Tournament


by Sue LaRoche This year, the Alvirne Broncos had two golfers who qualified for the State Tournament. The tournament was held at Nashua Country Club on Thursday October 6. Juniors Mike Sirvydas and Tyler Livingston both played in the first round with Sirvydas shooting a 79,


which put him in 8th place after the first round and qualified him to play in the second round on Saturday October 8. Sirvydas shot an 85 on day two, good enough for 18th place in the State of New Hampshire. He had Alvirne’s best finish in years. Coach Bob Lind is excited


about next year’s team as he has 7 of 8 players returning, losing only senior captain Brendan Donovan to graduation. After only missing the State Team tournament by percentage points (less than 1 game), he is looking for great things from next year’s squad.


when Britton Doyle recovered a fumble and rambled 26 yards for the score. Lucas Notini picked off a pass and ran it back for a 27-yard touchdown. Tony Beaulieu added another 15- yard touchdown run and Brandon Rule also added a 4-yard touchdown. Freshman Ryan Godschall had the final touchdown of the first half for the Broncos on a 50-yard scamper to paydirt. Tony Beaulieu tacked on six of the seven extra points in the first half and added another two in the second half. The Broncos scored quickly in the second half, with under two minutes played when Ryan Rule joined the scoring parade with a 40 yard run. Jack


Mahoney had the final score for the Broncos on a 4-yard run in the fourth quarter. This victory gives Alvirne a 4-3 record overall with a 2-3 record in NHIAA Division 2 and they will take on Spaulding on Friday, October 21, as they battle for a playoff spot.
