WINNISQUAM REGIONAL HIGH SCHOOL: 2
Senior Night for Mascoma varsity soccer proved to be a nail-biter of a game! Seniors and their families were recognized in a pre-game ceremony. Players honored included captains Justin Andrew (defender) and Lizzie Pelton (goal keeper), along with senior striker Brennen Murphy and left-wing Garret Davis.
The Royals gave up 2 first-half goals on break-away plays to #10 for Winnesquam, giving the Bears a 2-0 lead. At the half, the Mascoma made a few adjustments, pulling Dylan Pelton from the front line to personally mark the speedy Winnesquam Bear, #10. Dylan completely shut down each offensive attack aimed at getting the ball to #10, and the rest of the Mascoma defense was able to keep the remaining Winnesquam players in check. This defensive strong-hold allowed the Royals' offensive players to go to work.
In the first minute of the second half, Cam Stebbins scored off of an assist from Ben Seiler. At 15 minutes into the second half, Senior Brennen Murphy attacked the right side of the net for an unassisted goal to tie the game at 2-2. In the 75th minute, Ben Schwarz drove through the Winnesquam defense to score Mascoma's final goal. After being shut-out in the first half, the Royals finished the game with a second half shut-out of their own to get the W with a 3-2 final score.
The Royals finish the regular season 6-10, with a slim chance of still making the play-offs. The Div III play-off bracket should be determined by Friday, October 19th.
