GU12-5 Tewksbury 4-GU12-4 Chelmsford-1
The Lady Tigers were again coming off a win last week, so for sure they were ready to play- although short both one coach and one player this Columbus Day weekend.  The first goal of scored of the first half was also a FIRST goal of the season for Courtney Rowe.   The first half both sides were battling for possession.  Our defense led by Becca Langone, Megan Haley, and Evelyn Johnson were handling the rough play with ease.   We did end up with some penalty kicks as a result. The second half we saw the remainder of the goals for Tewksbury and for Chelmsford.  The hat trick - 3 GOALS-  were scired by Ailani Padilla. She was assisted by her line mates- Molly Cremin, Ava Piccolo, and Sarah Boone. Emily Zadig and Erica Spurr were also very instrumental in the total Tiger Team win this week. 

GU12-5 Tewksbury 3 vs. GU12-5 Dracut-1
The Lady Tigers are on a great path for their Fall 2015 season.  After a great win last week, we were hoping to see that W again at the end of the game.  The girls DID NOT disappoint.  After a few moments of some back and forth with control of ball and some great passing and shots from our line of Ava Piccolo, Vanessa Green, and Molly Cremin, it was our second line that scored for us first.  Ailani Padilla was able to get a great pass from Molly Cremin and get us on the board first.  Later in that half Molly Cremin also scored, assisted by Sarah Boone.  Our goalie Erica Spurr continues to dominate and was able to stop the many shots that came her way the first half.   The second half of play, the Lady Tigers were controlling ball possession with great passing.   Our defense anchored by Rebcca Langone, Emily Zadig, Evelyn Johnson,  and Courtney Rowe were great.   Dracut was never in our red zone for long.    Megan Haley continues to be a versatile player handling both the midfielder position as well as defense.   She helped set up our third goal to Sarah Boone.   Dracut was able to get one ball past our newest goal tender- Ava Piccolo, but that was all she and Erica Spurr allowed for the remainder of the game.  Again another amazing team performance win for the Lady Tigers.

BU10-3 Tewksbury 8 vs. Westford 1
The Tewksbury Boys U10-3 team played an aggressive style to beat Westford.  Tewksbury worked hard offensively to pass to open teammates.  The team play payed off with the game’s first goal when Robert Welch finished a nice touch pass from Matthew Slagle.  Tewksbury continued to press forward offensively after the goal while defensemen Greg Mercado, Cade Barron and Ryan Winter stymied many Westford attempts to gain possession.  Still pressing forward, Ryan Feudo stole a Westford goal kick and scored.  Only minutes later Feudo extended the lead again scoring off a Barron throw-in.   Goalie Nathan Laboy stopped all of Westford’s chances in the first half.  Welch scored after stealing a Westford pass and good pressure by Bryce Pare resulted in another Tewksbury goal.  Westford came out with some energy in the second half and was able to score on a corner kick.  Undeterred by the goal Tewksbury continued to get more scoring opportunities.  Feudo was able to make another steal and take the ball the length of the field for a goal.  A beautiful pass from Edward Doyle to Barron resulted in a goal.  Noah Healey made some nice moves and passes that ended with Tewksbury shots.  Barron ended the scoring with a goal assisted by Slagle.

GU10-4 Tewskbury 1 vs Waltham 0
This was a hard fought turf battle, the girls were excited for the win.  Paige Crowley got the only goal of the game after a nice pass from Erin Costello.  The girls were all motivated to keep the lead after getting on the board.  Beth Trout and Krissi Macdonald both had great games between the posts and made some huge saves!  We will work this week to get ready for Wakefield.

Tewksbury GU12-2 (6) – Westford GU12-2 (0)
The Tewksbury GU12-2 “Thunder” stormed past the Westford GU12-2 team in a big win with Tewksbury forward, Ashley Bielecki scoring an unprecedented 5 goals in the 6-0 victory.  The Thunder were prepared and ready to execute their game play. Tewksbury forwards, Ashlyn Nawn, Carrina Barron and Ashley Bielecki started with the ball in their possession and quickly moved their way into the offensive zone.  Great passing by the trio with the support of mid-fielder Kiley Kennedy set up early scoring chances for the Tewksbury girls. Center forward, Carrina Barron took possession inside the 18’ and put through a nice crossing pass to right wing, Ashley Bielecki who took the one-timer shot into a wide open goal to put Tewskbury up 1-0 only 4:45 into the game. Tewksbury kept possession in their offensive zone and stifled Westford’s offense with outstanding play from defenders, Maci Chapman, Brooklynn DeGrechie and Cassidy Paige. Midway through the half, forwards Alana Price, Madison Forigone and Jordan Gardner executed a great series of passes leading to a golden scoring opportunity.  Alana Price dribbled by two of Westford’s defenders and connected with Madison Forigone on a great pass deep in their offensive zone. Madison seized the opportunity a blasted a shot right up the middle and put the ball deep in the net to give Tewksbury a 2-0 lead. Westford managed to sneak in a couple of offensive attacks but were held well outside their scoring zone by Tewksbury’s rock solid defense. Tewksbury goaltender, Victoria Lavargna easily scooped up the outside shots and quickly got the ball back into Tewksbury possession.  In the 24 minute, center, Carrina Barron tore through Westford’s defense and rocked a shot to the far right post. Right wing, Ashley Bielecki crashed in on the play and got her foot on the ball to put it in between the post and Westford’s goalkeeper to score her 2nd goal and put Tewksbury in the driver’s seat up 3-0 ending the half.
2nd half play started and the Tewksbury “Thunder” continued their offensive dominance. Victoria Lavargna joined the Tewksbury forwards and pressured Westford’s defense.  Victoria broke through with the ball at midfield and dribbled to the 18’ and sent in a pass to the right corner. Ashley Bielecki stormed the corner and took a one-timer shot leaving the Westford goalkeeper stunned as the ball sailed high and away into the net increasing Tewksbury’s lead 4-0  6 minutes into the half. Only minutes later, Ashley won the ball from a Westford throw-in and returned with the ball deep in offensive territory. Ashley capitalized on her possession and took the shot to the near side to score her 4th goal of the game. Tewksbury’s defense pressed at midfield and outside back, Cassidy Paige came up with the ball on a big play then raced up the sideline creating more Tewksbury offensive heat.  Tewksbury forwards, Madison Forigone, Jordan Gardner, Alana Price and Carrina Barron continued to work the ball well in the offensive zone throughout the half giving the Thunder even more scoring opportunities. Kiley Kennedy dominated midfield play and provided excellent offensive and defensive support. Tewksbury defenders, Ashlyn Nawn, Brooklynn DeGrechie and Cassidy Paige allowed little Westford offensive penetration while Tewksbury 2nd half goalkeeper, Maci Chapman easily handled the few balls that got by her defense.  With Tewksbury controlling offensive play, Carrina Barron connected with Ashley Bielecki late in the half on another great passing play. Ashley put out her “red-hot” foot on the ball and blasted the shot past the Westford goalkeeper for her 5th goal and to close out the game 6-0.

Tewksbury-  6
Billerica - 0
Tewksbury Titian’s high powered offense was at it again at they cruised to the 6-0 victory over Billerica. Mason Veits and Drew Rennell have now combined in net for 5 shutouts this season and have given up a league low 4 goals on the season. The offense was powered by the dynamic play of Ryan Cura who has consistently forced opposing defenses to focus on him to little success as he scored another two goals vs. Billerica. Peter Impink continues to be blistering hot as he scored three goals in this one. Sal Catanzano closed out the scoring with an impressive dance through the defense flashing his footskills as he directed the ball into the goal. Jack Rennell continued to be dominant on defense winning individual battles and pushing the transition to offense. Michael Gaglione was held without a goal which is a rare occurrence, however, he had multiple assists making everyone around him better.  Alexandre Almeida continues to flash some of the best foot skills in the league and just missed on what would have been a highlight reel goal with a header.

Tewksbury 6
Billerica  1
Tewksbury United (G12-3) remained undefeated with a 6-1 victory over Billerica. Midfielder Olivia Millspaugh and Center Alexandra Fillmore have transitioned flawlessly as first year U-12 Players and demonstrated their skill in this game as Alex scored three goals and Olivia added another. The backbone of the team continues to be the play of Sophia Madera whose combination of control on defense and intimidating kicks were on full display when she scored on a bomb from the center circle after taking the corner kick and sprinting back into position for a great goal.  Noellia Cura rounded out the scoring on a well placed shot inside the goal post. Nicolette Evangelista is an absolute unsung hero on this team as she does everything so well and her defense is excellent. Brianna Gagnon continues to push the offense and was a key contributor in this game at center and more importantly in net for the second half in very windy conditions. Riley Veits continues to shine in net with a number of big saves.  Isabella Desisto has really shined this year on offense but was called upon in this one to help out on defense and played great. Ashley Demers also played stellar defense consistently forcing the opposition to the outside and limiting opportunities. Erica Hinkle was held goalless in this one but really pushed the pace and made some excellent attacks from the left wing. Fiona Green has been so strong this year and was also called upon in this one to help out on defense and was instrumental in turning back counter attacks with her awesome clear-outs. Sarra Barkallah’s recent move to midfielder has been an easy transition and her play has really solidified the center of our field.
