Twins Win Over the Lynns for Boys Soccer
The Everett High boys soccer team enjoyed a successful week, earning a pair of well-played victories over two Greater Boston League rivals, the Lynn Classical Rams and the Lynn English Bulldogs.
In a 4-1 triumph over Classical, Guilherme Meireles scored twice. Teammates Ricardo DoCarmo Guilherme Moraes also reached the back of the Ram net.
“We had a great game against Lynn Classical,” said EHS head coach Pedro Blas. “We moved the ball really well and played together as a team. It probably was one of our best games yet.”
The Crimson Tide then celebrated Senior Night in appropriate fashion a few days later with a 5-2 triumph over Lynn English.
Dan Cadet led the Everett offense with a pair of goals and teammates Carlos Persona, Guilherme Moraes, and Marcus Viera added single tallies.
“I felt like we dominated at least 60-70% of the ball, which was really good,” noted Blas of his team’s season-high output of five goals against the Bulldogs.
The Crimson Tide had been scheduled to take on Somerville yesterday (Tuesday) in their season finale, but that contest was canceled.
Blas and his crew thus concluded their abbreviated 2021 Fall II season with a fine record of 3-1-1 against their opponents from the newly-reconstituted GBL.
Neither Rain nor Revere Can Stop Boys’ Cross Country
The Everett High boys cross country team overcame both the elements and their Revere High opponents to earn a victory over the Patriots on the Crimson Tide’s home course at Macdonald Park in Medford.
Wensley Mompremier paced Everett to victory with a second-place finish in a time of 18:29.
Samuel Desir grabbed fifth spot with a clocking of 20:43. He was followed by Anthony Cooper in sixth in 20:55, Sebasian Fong in ninth in 22:28, and Fausto Paniagua in 10th with a time of 24:06.
“It was pouring rain and the boys showed a tremendous amount of heart to go out and perform anyway,” said EHS head coach Brendan Hahesy.
Hahesy and his crew are scheduled to meet Medford tomorrow (Thursday) at Macdonald and then will host Lynn Classical on Monday.
The GBL Invitational tentatively has been scheduled for next Thursday.
EHS Girls Soccer Continues to Improve
Although the Everett High girls soccer team came up short in its contests with new Greater Boston League opponents Lynn Classical and Lynn English this past week, the Lady Crimson Tide continue to give 100% in their pandemic-challenged Fall II season.
EHS head coach DeAnn Gallagher lauded the performance of junior Gitalia Boyce in the Classical contest.
“Gitalia played an all-around great game against Classical,” said Gallagher. “Her hustle and determination really showed.
“Although we lost both games, the girls have been playing hard,” Gallagher added. “We are down numbers and some of the girls are playing positions they are not used to. The team has adjusted well. We are young, so the future looks promising.”
Gallagher and her crew were scheduled to conclude their abbreviated Fall II season yesterday (Tuesday) with a contest against Somerville.
EHS Field Hockey Team Battling Hard
Despite a pair of losses to Greater Boston League rival Revere last week, the Everett High field hockey team continues to give 100% in their Fall II season.
“Despite the losses, we didn’t fall short with effort,” said EHS head coach Melissa O’Donnell. “I thought our team outplayed Revere in our game on Wednesday and we had excellent goalie play by Saraí and Kristie and all-around team chemistry.
“In Friday’s loss, we fell a little short in the second half, but it was not for lack of trying,” O’Donnell added. “We scored our first goal of the season by Kaleigh Snook on an assist by Dante Masucci. Our defense of Melissa Lopes and Celeste Fuccilo played great and held them to very few calls. We have a great team and we just keep getting better and better each day.”
The Crimson Tide are scheduled to face Revere again this coming Monday and will host Malden next Wednesday.
