Boys soccer finishes 2nd in GBL; awaits tourney foe
The Everett High boys soccer team finished off its regular season in style with a 4-1 victory over Somerville last week.
Dan Cadet and Gui Meireles provided the offense of the Crimson Tide, with both reaching the back of the Highlander net for two goals each.
“We started the game really hot,” said EHS head coach Pedro Blas. “We scored two goals within the first eight minutes. I also feel we adjusted well defensively. They had two really good players who were killing us down the middle, but we managed to control them.”
The victory gave Blas and his crew an outstanding final overall record of 12-1-3 (10-1-3 in the Greater Boston League) and a second-place finish in the GBL, just one point behind undefeated Medford (10-0-4 in the GBL), whom the Tide tied in both of their meetings this season.
The Crimson Tide were awaiting the announcement of their seeding and opening-round opponent for the upcoming Division 1 state soccer tournament as of press time yesterday (Tuesday) morning.
Boys finish fourth in GBL Meet
The Everett High boys’ cross country team finished in fourth place in last Thursday’s Greater Boston League Meet that was held just down the Parkway on the 2.7 mile course at Macdonald Park in Medford.
“We had a strong final meet of the season,” said EHS head coach Brendan Hahesy. “I was very proud of the entire team.”
The final places and times for the boys were as follows:
12. Samuel Desir. 15:58
19. Wensley Mompremier. 16:40
32. Anthony Cooper 17:34
34. Math Telson. 17:37
60. David Erazo. 22:24
66. Randy Vega 25:19
67. Fausto Paniatua. 25:21
68. Shishir Pokhrel 25:38
“It was a great effort across the board that allowed the boys to be successful. All eight ran their best races of the season,” added Hahesy, who noted that there was a problem after the meet with the girls’ results, which precluded receiving final team scores and individual times.
Girls soccer just shy of tourney
The Everett High girls soccer team fell short by one point of qualifying for the post-season state tournament after a 4-0 loss to Somerville in their season-finale last week.
“We had a few good players out for this game,” said EHS head coach Sheryl Steeves, whose squad needed a win or a tie in order to punch a ticket for a Journey to the Tourney.
However, despite the disappointment of the season-finale, Steeves, who completed her first season at the helm of the Lady Crimson Tide, and her crew put together a fine season.
Field hockey just misses tourney
The Everett High field hockey team came ever-so-close to qualifying for the post-season state tournament, but fell short by a point with a final record of 7-8-1.
Coach Melissa O’Donnell’s squad concluded its season in whirlwind fashion, dropping a 5-2 decision last Monday night to Peabody in the rain and falling to Haverhill by scores of 5-2 and 5-1 this past Thursday and Saturday.
Sandwiched between those losses was a 6-1 victory over Revere on Friday.
“We finished the season 7-8-1 and we were just one game shy of the state tournament,” noted O’Donnell. “We had an unbelievable season and I could not have been prouder of this team.”
Cross-country wins season finale
The Everett High boys and girls cross-country teams turned in a strong performance in their final meet of the season against Lynn Classical, wth the Crimson Tide boys defeating their Ram counterparts, 23-32.
EHS senior Wensley Mompremier finished in first place with a record-setting time over the new EHS course of 18:12 in his final dual meet for the Tide, placing an appropriate exclamation-mark on Wensley’s fine career.
Samuel Desir finished in second place with a clocking of 18:12. Matth Telson finished fifth in 19:41, followed by Anthony Cooper in sixth in 19:59, and David Huezo-Erazo finished in ninth place with a time of 26:08 to complete the Everett scoring.
Fausto Paniagua finished in 13th place with a time of 28:26 and Shishir Pokhrel finished in 14th place with a time of 29:00.
On the girls’ side, Luca Jean Noel finished in second place with a clocking of 27:42. Suzanne Maharjan finished in fourth place with a time of 31:26.
“Overall, it was a very good performance by the team,” said EHS head coach Brendan Hahesy. “Each runner had their fastest time of the season and gave us strong momentum going into the league meet.”
