BU10-3 Tewksbury -0 vs BU10-3 Burlington 7
The Rockers were hoping to bounce back from the tough turf loss last week in Waltham.  Today we were without Evan Deleon, so 11 Rockers were hoping to get him a victory.  We started Nate Laboy in the net this week and he did not disappoint the first few minutes of the game. Burlington had a talented squad who showed us early they were there to earn a victory.    Our defense was anchored by Seumas Naughton and Tucker Robinson.   They were doing their best to protect the red zone for our team.   Our offense was lead by Owen Kinnon, William Fillmore, and Tyler Chesbrough to start the game. They were doing their best to penetrate the Burlington red zone.   The defense and their goalie were not allowing anything to get by.    Later we changed lines and Ben Piccolo, Jeremy Insogna, and Ethan Hines tried very hard to get some offensive momentum going.  They had at least four shots, that every time seemed the goalie was ready for.  We had Edward Doyle and Greg Mercardo come off the bench to pitch in on  defense.  Soon the relentless attacks of Burlington made their way into our net.   By half time the Burlington squad had a 4-0 lead.  We had a brief pep talk and vowed to make changes.    Again the boys tried second half to make some plays.  We had some changes on the line with Jeremy Insogna now paired with Owen Kinnon, and William Fillmore. We also switched Edward Doyle into the net.    Burlington must have had a great pep talk as they quickly added two more goals. The Rockers never gave up still making amazing offensive attempts, but again Burlington had it in their mindsets we were not going to beat them today.   The final score was 7-0 in favor of Burlington.  The boys vowed to really work hard at practice next week so we can see a W. Proud of the team and their consistent efforts.

GU12-5 Tewksbury 1 vs GU12-5 Chelmsford 0
The Tigers were missing only Meghan Haley, who was injured at practice this week.  The girls vowed to work very hard to stay unbeaten and earn the victory for their teammate.   Our offense was lead at the start by Ava Piccolo, Melanie Kaplan, and Sarah Boone.  We also had Gaby Ortiz covering the midfield.  The girls were working great together with fabulous passes and attempts on the Chelmsford net.  On the defensive side of the ball we had Courtney Rowe, Becca Langone, and Evelyn Johnson, working hard with their goalie Erica Spurr. The quartet was successful keeping Chelmsford's shots at bay.   Later Sam Taber, Emily Zadig, Molly Cremin, and Natalie Martin came into the game to make some great contributions to both the defense and offensive side of the ball.   It took a while for someone to finally get on the scoreboard, but FINALLY Melanie Kaplan made a great pass to Sam Taber, who netted the goal.  The Tigers led by 1 into the second half.  In the second half again everyone contributed.  Erica Spurr again held on for the shut out, and Gaby Ortiz had an amazing goal attempt that just went right.    Overall the Tigers are playing so well as a team, and it's great to see.  they are almost half way through the Spring and remain unbeaten.  

GU10-4 Tewksbury 8 vs. Dracut 2.
The Tewksbury Tornadoes did it again to continue their winning streak wit a win over Dracut today with an 8-2 win.  The Tornadoes struck early with a quick goal by Rachel Lochiatto on a pass from Erin Costello.  Soon after, Elena Lochiatto added to the Tewksbury lead.  Just before the half, Alexis Rooney had a nice goal after a great pass from Brynn Capistran.  The lady Tornadoes led 3-0 going into the half. It was an impressive defensive stand from Gianna Flynn. Maya Medera, Beth Trout, and Adrianna DiGiacomo as there were very few chances for Dracut to get a shot on Krissi Macdonald. 
Both teams came out after the half ready for action.  Alexis Rooney set up a Brynn Capistran goal to start the second half.  Rachel Lochiatto added another quick goal for Tewksbury.  There was a lot of impressive passing on both the offensive and defensive sides of the field from the Tornadoes.  Kelli Anderson struck next after getting a foot on a pass from Rachel Lochiatto.  Towards the end of the second half Dracut was showing more spark and it became a back and forth game.  Paige Crowley showed lots of hustle getting back to help the defense as Dracut was trying to attack.  Dracut joined the scoring party sneaking a shot by the Tewksbury defense.  Elena Lochiatto responded with a quick goal.  Dracut had another opportunity and scored again.  The game ended with a Tewksbury goal by Kelli Anderson just before the final whistle.

BU12-1 3 vs. Malden 12-1  1
The Tewksbury Boys 12-1 team ran their record to 3-1 following a 3-1 victory vs. Malden
The boys came out strong Saturday as Brady Chapman, Ian Maresca, Luke Maresca, and Noah Rizzo were working magic up front, but could not get the ball past the extremely talented Malden goalie.  
The midfield was being won by Justin Rooney, Travis Cohen, William Eskenas and Alex Sovie, as the ball movement was a thing of beauty to watch, but the score remained 0-0.  Jeremy Perez and Eric Impink controlled the defensive end for the young Red men, as they continually staved off any would be attack.  Timmy Sweeney as he has done early on this season, made any key save when needed.  Tewksbury was finally able to break the 0-0 score, Luke Maresca sent Noah Rizzo down the right wing, Rizzo fired his shot by the goalie making the score 1-0.    The score was no indication of who controlled the first half, as Malden’s goalie was tough to beat, not to mention a couple posts helping out.
The second half started the same as Justin Rooney hit another post, while Chapman. Maresca’s , Cohen, Sovie kept the pressure on.  Jeremy Perez, who was all over the field, intercepted a pass in the defensive end.  Perez juked a couple Malden players, sent Luke Maresca in by himself; L Maresca will not miss many breakaways, and he did not miss this one, sending ball far post for a 2-0 advantage.  Tewksbury kept the pressure on, while Impink and Perez clamped down the defense.  Malden put some pressure on, but Eskenas in goal in the second half made things look easy.  Tewksbury kept battling, as Ian Maresca made a beautiful move down the wing, sending the ball to 8 yard line with a nice cross.  Alex Sovie, playing right where he should have been; gathered the ball in and fired a shot by the goalie for the 3-0 advantage.  Malden  got a late goal for the final score 3-1.
Tewksbury has a huge game vs.Reading next Saturday, Will be for first place in the division.
