EHS Field Hockey Set for Senior Day
The Everett High field hockey team will conduct Senior Day ceremonies today (Wednesday) when the Crimson Tide host Malden at 4:00. The seven members of the Class of 2021, Ashley Fitzgerald, Mimi Le, Haley Otier, Kaliegh Snook, Keara Farrell, Michelle Pham, and Rebecca Covelle, will be recognized for their contributions to the EHS field hockey program.
The Crimson Tide dropped a 6-2 decision to Malden this past week, but EHS head coach Melissa O’Donnell saw positive signs from her team’s performance.
“The game was far from what the final score reflects,” said O’Donnell. “We as a team are becoming one unit.”
The Crimson Tide’s goals were scored by Haley Otier and Dante Masacci, with assists from Kaliegh Snook and Melissa Lopes. Goalie Kristi Skane turned in an outstanding performance in the net.
“We had great offense by Haley Otier, Kaleigh Snook, Jessica Colman, Robert Fuccillo, Ella Hickey, Justin Lonmore, Emma Longmore, Michelle Pham, and Kaylin Seward, as well as great defense from Celeste Fuccillo, Ashley Fitzgerald, Melissa Lopes, and Julianna Edwards,” said O’Donnell. “This team is one of the most close-knit teams I have coached and they are fun to work with and watch.”
Boys Soccer Falls in GBL Cup Tourney
The Everett High boys soccer team saw its 2021 spring season come to an end with a 3-2 loss to the Lynn English Bulldogs last Thursday in the opening round of the Greater Boston League Cup playoffs.
The Crimson Tide had entered the tourney as the third seed among the eight GBL schools after compiling a fine record of 4-1-1 during the regular season, including a 5-2 victory over English the previous Saturday. However, the Bulldogs turned the tables in the rematch.
“I think our guys came in a little too confident, thinking it was going to be an easy game,” said EHS head coach Pedro Blas. “I have to give the English boys a lot of credit for coming in prepared and ready to go.”
The Crimson Tide goals were scored by Carlos Persona and Guilherme Meireles.
With the pandemic-shortened spring season of 2021 now in the record books, Blas and the returning members of his Crimson Tide squad will look forward to a return to normalcy in just a few months for the start of the 2021 fall season.
