GU10-1 Tewksbury 2 vs. GU10-1 Burlington 1
The Redmen Girls U10-1 team continued their strong play with a convincing 2-1 win over the Burlington Red Devils. The young Redmen Girls came out flying and had early scoring chances from Megan Maresca and Nicole Baron that were turned away by the Burlington goalie. The locals took a 1-goal lead midway through the 1st half when Maya Paquette made a beautiful cross to Laila McFadden, who sent a one-timer past the sliding goalkeeper. The 2nd half started with Burlington controlling play but any attempt of offensive zone pressure by Burlington was quickly turned away by the rock solid defense of Jayme Martin, Mikayla Delorey, and Meghan Indingaro. The locals took a 2-0 lead 10 minutes into the 2nd half when Sam Ryan fired a hard shot that rang off the post but Lyla Chapman pounced on the rebound and fired a shot off the crossbar and into the back of the net. Burlington turned up their intensity in an attempt to tie the game but Sophia Nazarro and Megan Maresca made a series of great defensive plays to secure the 2-1 win for the Redmen Girls.
GU12-4 Tewksbury 7 vs Westford 0
It was another great day of soccer for the Tewksbury 12-4 girls. Less than a minute into the game, Rachel Lochiatto blasted a shot by the Westford goalie to put Tewksbury up 1-0. The game settled down and both teams were bringing the ball up and down field. Goalie Sara Rivard got into the action, coming out of the box and sending a spot on pass to Julia Moura, who quickly got the ball to Erin Costello who sent the ball to the back of the net to make the lead 2-0. Gabby Couillard and Maya Madera were busy with many throw ins, corner kicks, and showed great leadership and teamwork in the backfield helping out and encouraging teammates. Delia Conte and Emalee Boyce both netted goals just before the end of the first half to put Tewksbury's lead to 4-0.
The girls' confidence showed throughout the 2nd half and they had fun on the field. Delia Conte got her second goal of the game after the Westford goalie dropped the ball. The lead grew 5-0. The hustle from Kennedy Pereira, Sabrina Grimes, Kelli Anderson, Gianna Ausiello, and Elena Lochiatto all had many shots on net and seemed to be in the right place on the field to feed the ball to teammates. Julia Moura got her first goal of the season after receiving a pass from Rachel Lochiatto to make the game 6-0. Just before the end of the game, Kelli Anderson sent a quick pass to Emalee Boyce for her second goal of the game to put the final score at 7-0. The girls are headed into the second half of the season with a 4-0-1 record and hope to have another great game in Chelmsford next Saturday.
GU10-5 Tewksbury defeated Wilmington 4-0. Goals scored by Jane Garabedian, Lila Areias, and Lyndsey Fraga (2).
Billerica 1 vs. Tewksbury GU14-3 2
Erica Hinkle broke a scoreless tie early in the second half for Tewksbury with a clinical finish from 6 yards out off a feed from her strike partner Madeline Anderson. Tewksbury carried the balance of play for the next 10 minutes with several quality chances turned away by solid Billerica goalkeeping. Hinkle would return the favor midway through the half when she found Anderson running through alone at the far post. Hinkle's pass was so properl;y weighted that Anderson, without breaking stride simply redirected the pass into the open goal for much needed 2-0 lead. Billerica found its stride late in the second half as they deseperately fought to pull even. A late Billerica goal 5 minutes from the final whistle would make for a tense few minutes as Ashley Talbot, Sarah Boone, Lauren Bielecki, Leah Casey and Nicolette Evangelista held the line in the waning moments. Majie Welton had several key stops to preserve the well earned victory on the road.
