Warrior Weekly: A league title and tournaments
I’m sorry. For the first time this year, I did not post a blog last week, and I apologize to all my loyal readers (AKA, mom). I lost power and did not get it back until Thursday, making it very hard to create content for an online publication.
Anyways, since the fall season is coming to a close, I thought it would be nice to go back to checking in with all the teams and give a final wrap-up for some.
Girls Volleyball: The girls finished the season with a record of 4-15; however, they won two of their final five, an impressive feat for a team with only one senior. The future looks bright for this up-and-coming WHS team.
Girls Soccer: The girls soccer season ended with a 2-0 loss to Bedford. The season was a struggle from start to finish, with bright spots here and there. They finished the year with a 4-11-3 record. Two highlights from the year are the girls’ two ties against DCL Large powerhouses Westford Academy and Acton-Boxborough. Every game, the girls played hard, but struggled to score. I myself watched four games and never saw them score. They have a solid core of young talent and will surely have tournament hopes next year.
Football: Despite playing tough, hard-nosed and with heart, the Warriors fell to Concord-Carlisle, 13-0. The defense played exceptionally well for the most part, holding CC’s ground game in check. The offensive struggles continued however, and the Warriors failed to put up any points. With two games left, the Warriors will play Bedford, then have a week off, then the showdown with Weston on Thanksgiving Day. Hopefully the Warriors will solve their offensive problems and compliment a defense that has proven to be tough to beat.
Field Hockey: After a strong regular season, the ladies played their way to the tenth seed in the Division 2 North section of the bracket. They won their first game against seventh seed Tewksbury, 2-1, in strokes. A last minute goal was scored by junior Catherine Barber, and the two sudden death overtimes were scoreless thanks to stellar defensive performances by seniors Juliette Bastarache, Jess Hayward and goalie Erin Curtin. The girls traveled to play second seeded Newburyport for their next game. Unfortunately, the girls were unable to overcome an early deficit and fell, 3-2. The girls field hockey team certainly outperformed their expectations this season, finishing with an 11-5-2 record.
Boys Soccer: We had a chance to win the DCL Small two weeks ago, but came up short again Concord-Carlisle, 4-3. With one game left in our season we needed to win to stay above .500. We did just that, winning 2-0 with two goals from senior captain Nico Pascual-Leone. Next we played the waiting game, wondering where we would be seeded in the state tournament. With a 7-6-4 record we were seeded 20th in the Divison 2 North bracket. Our first game was against 13th seed Greater Lowell Tech on Saturday. We won 4-0. Once again, Nico had two goals, I scored one (in my newfound striker position) and Chris Pamico, I mean D’Amico (nice one boston.com) scored the fourth. Our next game is Monday against fourth seed Lynn Tech; wish us luck.
Quick note: the Wayland-Weston crew team was looking to defend their state title last weekend but was unable to because the State Championship Regatta was canceled because of the snowstorm. I’m sure they’ll come out hard in the spring.
Second quick note: Congrats to the girls cheerleading squad for winning the DCL Small title. The first league title this year.
No doghouse this week; I didn’t watch too much football today, sorry.
The days are shorter and the winter season is fast approaching. It’s been a solid fall season so far. Check WarriorScores for the latest from all your favorite teams.
