The Mascoma Royals played Fall Mountain at home on Tuesday in their DIV III debut. With COVID rules, Fall Mountain is the only in-Division team that Mascoma plays during the regular season this year.
Mascoma led 2-0 at the half after Ben Seiler scored 2 separate penalty kicks following Fall Mountain fouls in the box. Fall Mountain opened the 2nd half with a well-struck goal from Fall Mountain's #17, Nate Town. Mascoma didn't stay quiet for long, as Cole Moulton served up a well-placed ball to teammate Zach Thompson to make the score 3-1. Mascoma's Ben Seiler struck again for his 3rd hat trick of the short season with an upper 90 ace free kick from about the 45 yard line. Connor Thomspson had 9 saves for Mascoma, while Fall Mountain's keeper Brayden Ring saved 8 shots on goal.
The score doesn't reflect the intensity with which the game was played. The midfielders from both teams fought hard in changing weather conditions to possess and control the ball. Mascoma Midfielders Gavin Giovagnoli, Cole Moulton, Zach Thompson, Aidan Smith, and Grant Suttie gave outstanding performances in the home-field Div III contest.
Mascoma takes on Fall Mountain twice again this week: JV meets Fall Mountain @ MVRHS on Thursday 10/1 at 4 pm, and the varsity squad travels to Fall Mountain for a 10 a.m. game this Saturday, 10/3.
