Level Opening Week for EHS Boys Soccer
The Everett High boys soccer team opened its Fall II season with a level week — a win, a tie, and a loss — in its encounters against three Greater Boston League rivals.
The victory came this past Saturday against archrival Chelsea, which has rejoined the GBL, by a score of 5-1. The goal-scorers for coach Pedro Blas’s squad were the quintet of Ricardo DoCarmo, Guilherme Meireles, Benjamin Pezo, Luan Cruz (on a PK), and Dan Cadet.
A few days earlier, Everett battled Malden to a 4-4 deadlock. Guilherme Meireles paced the Crimson Tide offense with a pair of goals. Teammates Guilherme Moraes (PK) and Dan Cadet also reached the back of the Golden Tornado net.
The lone setback came via a 6-0 loss to Revere in the season-opener. “Our first game was a little rough,” said Blas. “We had a rough time playing together as a team and we were trying a new line-up which didn’t work, so I take full responsibility for it.
“We played a lot better against Malden and I think we dominated most of the game,” Blas noted. “We missed a lot of opportunities, but most importantly, we showed signs of improvement.
“And we definitely played a lot better against Chelsea,” Blas continued. “I think our team has found their groove and realize that when you play your role and do your job, good things can happen. Players have shown a lot of positivity after that big win. Hopefully we can bring the same energy against our future rivals.”
Blas and his crew were scheduled to take on Lynn Classical yesterday (Tuesday) and will trek to Lynn English today (Wednesday). They will entertain Someville next Tuesday.
EHS Cross-Country Teams Open Season Vs. GBL Foes
The Everett High boys and girls cross country teams opened their Fall II season this past week.
Last Monday, the teams trekked to Lynn Woods to take on new Greater Boston League rival Lynn Classical. The Crimson Tide girls’ squad ran to a victory, led by the duo of Luca Jean Noel, who finished in first place, and Arianna Reed, who came across the line in second.
On the boys’ side, the top performer was Samuel Desir-Mafouana, who finished in fourth place. Samuel was followed by teammates Anthony Cooper (fifth place), Sebastian Fong (eighth), Matth Telson (ninth), and Purvansh Aujla (13th).
Three days later the Crimson Tide made the short trek to Admiral’s Hill in Chelsea and came away with victories on the Red Devils’ home course.
For the boys, Wensley Mompremier finished first and Samual Desir-Mafouana came across in second. Anthony Cooper grabbed fourth spot, Matth Telson took fifth, Fausto Paniagua finished sixth, and Purvansh Aujla completed the EHS scoring with a seventh-place finish.
For the girls, Luca Jean Noel took first place and Arianna Reed finished in second place.
“It has been a different type of season, but I have been proud of how the athletes have stepped up and done their best under difficult circumstances,” said EHS head coach Brendan Hahesy. “It is not easy to complete a three-mile race while wearing a mask.”
Hahesy and his crew were set to take on Revere tomorrow (Thursday).
Young EHS Girls Soccer Team Looking to Improve
Although the Everett High girls soccer team came up on the short end of a 10-0 decision to Greater Boston League rival Medford this past week, EHS head coach DeAnn Gallagher saw some promising signs from her young squad.
“It was a tough loss,” said Gallagher, who had only one substitute available for the contest. “We had a slow start — eight of their goals were scored in the first half. We played much better in the second half and if we had played that well in the first half, it could have been a better outcome.
“We have a very young team and the future looks promising,” Gallagher added.
Gallagher and her squad, who had their game with Malden postponed and a contest with Chelsea game canceled, were scheduled to host Lynn Classical yesterday (Tuesday) at 7 Acre Park and to travel to Manning Field in Lynn to meet Lynn English today (Wednesday).
