Another Strong Week for EHS Boys Soccer
The Everett High boys soccer team enjoyed another successful week with a win and a tie this past week against GBL opponents Chelsea and Lynn Classical and victory over non-league opponent Lynn Tech.
The Crimson Tide started out sluggishly in its contest with the Red Devils, their rival across the Parkway, conceding an early goal.
However, Everett moved out to a 2-1 lead at the half and added five goals after the intermission to cruise to a 7-1 victory.
“Although we started off a little slowly, I felt like we had control of the game from the beginning,” said EHS head coach Pedro Blas. “I would like to say we dominated 75% possession of the ball, which I really liked. We went to the half winning 2-1, but in the second half our offense woke up and we put some goals on net.”
Gui Meireles notched the hat trick for the Crimson Tide and Dan Cadet scored twice. Single goals were contributed by Ben Pezo and Richard Jeanty.
Last Thursday Everett hosted Lynn Classical, the only team to have handed the Tide a loss this season. The contest was a defensive struggle, with the teams battling to a 1-1 deadlock. Brian Martinez reached the back of the Classical net for Everett.
“We had some clear opportunities, but couldn’t put them all on net,” noted Blas.
This past Saturday the Crimson Tide hosted non-league rival Lynn Tech, which perennially is one of the top teams in the Commonwealth Athletic Conference.
After falling behind 1-0 in the first 15 minutes, Everett took control and eventually cruised to a 5-2 triumph. Cadet, Ty Alvin, Luan Cruz, and Tarik Lamadezema were among the Crimson Tide who reached the back of the Tech net.
“We started the game slowly and couldn’t find our rhythm,” said Blas. “But we woke up and dominated the rest of the game and touched the ball really well. I was proud of everyone’s leadership and keeping their heads in the game.”
Blas and his crew, who now stand at 10-1-3 on the season, were scheduled to play at Lynn English yesterday (Tuesday) and will host Somerville tomorrow. They will trek to Lawrence High for a non-league encounter on Saturday and conclude their regular season next Tuesday at East Boston, another non-league opponent.
Two More Wins for EHS Field Hockey
The Everett High field hockey team had another successful week with two wins over non-league opponent Northeast Regional.
The Crimson Tide earned a 7-1 victory last Monday. Omar Marshall and Kayley Rossi led the Everett offense, with Omar netting the hat trick and Kayley scoring two goals. Aadam Marshall and Kayleigh McMahon also added goals, which for Kayleigh, a freshman, marked her first varsity goal.
Aadam Marshall (2), Melissa Lopes (2), Cristina Snook, and Omar Marshall all earned assists on the day.
The Crimson Tide took on the Golden Knights in a rematch on Friday, and once again came away with the win. Snook rattled the Northeast net twice to record her first varsity goals. Rossi also scored two goals, with Omar Marshall and McMahon adding a goal apiece.
Aadam Marshall (2), Omar Marshall, Rossi, and Emma Buckley were credited with assists.
“Northeast gave us a great defensive game and we had to battle with them,” noted EHS head coach Melissa O’Donnell.
The Crimson Tide have a tough schedule this week as they conclude their regular season, starting with a contest against St. Mary’s of Lynn this past Monday. They were scheduled to trek to Hamilton-Wenham yesterday (Tuesday) and will host Malden today (Wednesday). They will entertain Haverhill on Friday and Peabody next Monday.
EHS Golfers Wrap up their Season
The improving Everett High golf team concluded its season this past week with a pair of strong performances against Greater Boston League rivals Somerville and Lynn English. Although the Crimson Tide came up on the short end of both matches by scores of 40-32 and 42-30 respectively, EHS head coach Steve Gallagher was pleased with his team’s overall performance.
“We found ourselves in two tight matches this week, but ultimately didn’t do enough to get a win,” said Gallagher.
This past Friday the GBL held its championship tournament to which all of the GBL schools sent their top two players. Everett was represented by junior Alex Velasco and sophomore Makenzie Powers.
“Both played well, but it was going to take a flawless round to place amongst the league’s best,” Gallagher noted.
“Despite going winless this season, we made great strides for the future,” said Gallagher, reflecting upon the 2021 campaign. “The growth of the game in the city will continue to be the largest barrier to success, but we have a good core and we are up for the challenge.”
Cross Country Teams Do Well Against Medford
The Everett High girls and boys cross country teams made the short trek to Macdonald Park to take on Greater Boston League foe Medford last Wednesday.
For the girls, Luca Jean Noel finished in fourth place with a time of 24:18 over the 2.75 mile course. Suzanne Maharjan finished in eighth place with a clocking of 29:37.
Katherine Nguyen came across in 10th place in 37:25, followed by teammate Noraliz Quinonen in 11th spot in 37:25.
On the boys’ side, Wensley Mompremier finished in second place with a time of 16:25. Samuel Desir took third place in 16:40, followed by Matth Telson in eighth position in 19:26.

Coach Brendan Hahesy and his crew are scheduled to host GBL foe Lynn Classical today (Wednesday) on the Crimson Tide’s new course at 7 Acre Park. They will return to Macdonald Park next Wednesday to compete in the GBL championship meet.
EHS Girls Soccer Blanks Chelsea, 5-0
The Everett High girls soccer team earned a 4-0 victory over Chelsea last Tuesday.
The goal-scorers for the Lady Crimson Tide were freshman Yelsa Garcia, who reached the back of the Chelea net for two goals, senior captain Gigi Boyce, and senior Nicole Mumbi.
Senior Stephanie Azurdia and junior Lamiah Wyzard shared the goal-keeping duties to earn the clean sheet.
Two days later the Everett squad trekked to Lynn Classical and came up on the short end of a 2-0 decision.
“This was a tough game,” said EHS head coach Sheryl Steeves. “Captain Mariana Madrigal Orrego was the goal keeper and played a really strong game. Freshman Emilia Maria-Babcock played an amazing game on defense. She had a few amazing saves.”
Steeves and her crew were scheduled to host Lynn English yesterday (Tuesday) and will travel to Somerville tomorrow (Thursday). They will make the long ride to Greater Lawrence Tech next Monday.
