BU10-3 Tewksbury (5) vs. Waltham (0)
The Tewksbury boys showed great improvement in a 5-0 win over Waltham.  Tewksbury was able to jump out to an early lead in the first minute.  Daniel Sullivan played a beautiful corner kick in front of the net.  Cole Evangelista won the ball and passed to Joshua Pinto.  Pinto found Dylan Paulding who scored for the 1-0 lead.  Waltham made a bid to even the score, but goalie Shea Moynihan made a diving save.  Tewksbury extended the lead when Chris Johnston passed to Michael Carlson who found the back of the net.  Waltham came out strong in the second half, but was thwarted by Derek Nazarro and George DeGregorio’s strong defense.  Evan Mendonca pushed the lead to 3-0 on a goal assisted by Cade Barron.  Paulding scored his second goal of the game after stealing a Waltham goal kick.  Mendonca closed the scoring on a free kick.

BU12-2 5 vs. Lowell 12-2  2
Tewksbury was looking to avenge a tie in week 1, which they did in convincing style with a 5-2 victory vs. Lowell.    Tewksbury was able to get off to a quick start, as Andrew Della Piana set up Sam Barbagallo for his first goal of the game making the score 1-0.  Alek Cranston, Jake Pelletier, and Eric Impink continued their impressive defensive play as the score remained 1-0.  Timmy Sweeney playing strong in goal was also making sure the lead held up.  Travis Cohen, Luke McFadyen, Logan Teixeira, Justin Rooney and Will McFadyen kept the ball movement precise controlling the midfield.  Della Piana and Barbagallo were at it again, as Della Piana fed Barbagallo who fired the shot by the Lowell Keeper for the 2-0 advantage.  Jake Mcdonough back after missing games due to injury used his speed down the wing to continually pressure The Lowell defense.  Looked like the game was going to be 2-0, heading into the half, but Alek Cranston cleared the ball, Rooney using his speed streaked passed a defender, came in alone, and rifled a shot far post for a 3-0 lead.
As Lowell did in the first game, came out strong in the second half with 2 quick goals cutting the lead to 3-2.  Tewksbury got the all important insurance goal, as Jake Mcdonough hit a perfect cross to Della Piana (goal and 2 assists) who would not let the goalie gain control, and tucked the ball into the net for the 4-2 lead and steal momentum from Lowell.  Travis Cohen playing goal kept the score 4-2, with some key stops down the stretch.  Barbagallo complete the hat trick, with a great feed from Will McFadyen, making the final score 5-2.

Westford 2 vs. GU14-2 Tewksbury 0
The Tewksbury girls put up a spirited effort against a top notch Westford squad. In their first matchup the team struggled but on this day it was a different story. The game remained scoreless for most of the first half until from about 30 yards out the Westford girl drilled a perfect shot into the net. In the 2nd half the Rebels continued their strong play getting several scoring chances but could not put one in. Then with 30 seconds left and Tewksbury pressing to equalize the Westford team was able to counter-attack and squeak one off the post into the net. Julia Cafferty was incredible all day in net. The squad hopes to finish the season with a win at home the following week.
