EHS Girls Soccer Shows Promise
Although the Everett High girls soccer team came out on the short end of a 6-2 decision to Greater Boston League rival Medford in their season-opener last week, new EHS head coach Domenick Persuitte saw some positive signs from his squad,
“We had a very tough loss to Medford,” said Persuitte. “Although the final score was 6-2, we cut the deficit to 4-2 with two goals in under two minutes. There is still a lot of work ahead, but the girls played very well and are showing some promise.”
Lamiah Wyard notched the first goal of the 2022 campaign when she delivered a rocket from 25-30 yards out that found the back of the Lady Mustang net.
Yelsa Garcia scored when a teammate sent a nice through ball past the Medford defense which Yelsa finished for the goal.
Persuitte and his crew were scheduled to play at Malden yesterday (Tuesday) and will entertain Chelsea tomorrow (Thursday). They will host non-league opponent Latin Academy on Monday and GBL rival Revere next Tuesday.
EHS Boys Soccer Earns Comeback Win in Opener
The Everett High boys soccer team overcame an early 2-0 deficit by scoring three unanswered goals to post a 3-2 triumph over Greater Boston League rival Medford in their season-opener last Thursday.
“We played well, but had a rough start,” said EHS head coach Pedro Blas. “We fell asleep on two corner kicks and went down 0-2 in the first 25 minutes. But the great part is that we fought through adversity and came back to win.”
Joshua Desouza scored the first Everett goal of the 2022 campaign and Plinio Oliveira found the back of the Mustang net to bring the Crimson Tide back to level.
That set the stage for Gabriel Hudson to provide the margin of victory with the go-ahead goal with eight minutes to go.
Blas and his crew were scheduled to host GBL rival Malden yesterday (Tuesday) and will make the trip across the Parkway to meet Chelsea tomorrow (Thursday).
They will trek to non-league rival Peabody on Friday and will play at Revere next Tuesday.
EHS Field Hockey Plays Well in Opener
The Everett High field hockey team dropped its season-opener to non-league opponent Waltham this past Monday. Although her team came up on the short end of the 4-1 decision, EHS head coach Melissa O’Donnell was pleased with her squad’s effort.
“Despite the final score, we played really well,” said O’Donnell. “We had a lot of chances to put the ball in the net but just missed, and our defenders, Jessica Colman, Stephany DeSouza, Tianna Allen, and Taisha Alexandre, were on point, making great plays and getting the ball out.
“Our first-year goalie, Bethy Palacios, made some great saves to keep us in the game and she saw her first two penalty strokes, going 1-for-1,” added O’Donnell.
Everett’s goal was scored on a corner by Omar Marshall, assisted by Kaylee Rossi.
O’Donnell and her crew will entertain Peabody tomorrow (Thursday) evening at 6:15 at the River Green field and will host Northeast Regional next Wednesday afternoon.
