With wins last night, both the boys and girls soccer teams are approaching the 50% mark to enter the MIAA Tournament. The girls defeated David Prouty, 8-0, giving them a record of 8-3-1. With six games left in the season, they will undoubtedly get another victory to hit the 50%.

In Spencer last night, Jordyn Abasciano earned a hat trick, and Jianna Baroni shot two goals for the Rockets. Keeper Sarah Fahey had 4 saves for her fifth shut out this year.

At home, the boys beat Prouty, 3-0, making the Rockets 5-8. Earning a playoff spot for the boys is a little more daunting since they must win 4 of their remaining 5 games. This team, however, is playing very well and showing some great attitude, drive, and toughness.

After losing two captains to injuries early in the season, the boys have finally regrouped and are completing their offensive attacks. Kyle Novakoski scored in the 8th minute assisted by Riley Beauregard. One minute into the second half, Jadon Latino scored with an assist by Will Sjogren. In the 53rd minute, Beauregard shot past a sliding goalie for the third and final score of the night. He was also assisted by Sjogren.

Alex Mularski continues to do a fine job defending the net, and he earned his third shut out of the season last night.

Also at home last evening, the field hockey team defeated David Prouty, 10-0. Jess Clifford had a hat trick and an assist while teammates Grace Levansavich, Jackie Clark, and Shannon Hynes each shot two goals. Ally Woeller also scored for the Rockets.

The field hockey team is now 13-0, and they earned their playoff spot back on October 2nd when they defeated Tantasqua, 2-1, for their ninth win of the season.
