Single Score Closes OC’s Win Over Keefe Tech

            A week after blowing past Holbrook, Old Colony had a much tougher time offensively against Keefe Tech. However, the Cougars were still able to pull off a win on the road, improving to 2-0 on the season following the 6-0 win.

            Matt Bumpus led Old Colony with 55 yards on nine carries and, although Blake Dennison had 40 on eight carries while Phil Proctor has 38 on five, Thomas Stanton was the difference in the win. Stanton was the only one to get into the end zone from either team, rushing for three yards in the last minute of the second quarter.

            Keefe Tech managed to get into the red zone twice in the second half, but the Cougars defense stood tall throughout, maintaining the shutout.

            “Both defenses were tough in the second half,” Old Colony head coach Brandon Mendez said.

            Aside from a 25-23 hiccup in the second set, Old Colony volleyball was able to comfortably handle Avon en route to a 3-1 win, improving to 5-1 on the season.

            Kat Kirby led the Cougars with eight kills in the win. Savannah Halle finished with 17 service points and a whopping nine aces against the Panthers.

            Old Colony golf knocked off Norfolk Aggie 8-1 to take that step over .500, improving to 4-3 on the seasons. Brady Wegleowskiwas the medalist, shooting a 41 in the win. Brian KuketzLucas CorreiaJoel CortesLuke Butler, and Cole Letendre all helped the Cougars earn points, as well.

Old Rochester Regional

            Old Rochester Regional girls soccer continues to be the force of the South Coast Conference, most recently knocking off GNB Vac-Tech 5-0 on Monday. The Bulldogs are now 8-0 on the season and 6-0 in conference play.

            Jen Willians scored twice against the Bears. Yet again, Meg Hughes had her fingerprints all over the match, finishing with a goal and an assist. Kate Beaulieu and Mack Wilson both scored one goal apiece. Novalye Arruda and Maddie Wright both finished the game with one assist to their name.

            ORR boys soccer has not experienced the same fortune as the girls team, though they are still working toward a postseason berth.

            Following the 5-2 loss to GNB Voc-Tech on Monday, the Bulldogs are 3-4-2 on the season, but have not fared as well in the South Coast Conference, now sitting at 1-4-1.

Tabor Academy

            Up until Tabor Academy field hockey’s latest matchup against the Rivers School, which resulted in a 1-0 loss for the Seawolves, the team had been undefeated in 2019, jumping out to a 3-0 start to the season.

            A large factor in Tabor’s earlier success has been goalie Christine Steege, who has only allowed two goals on the season.

            Tabor girls soccer has yet to lose through three games. The Seawolves’ last win was a 2-1 finish over The Rivers School. Jaydah Bedoya scored the first goal of the match on a through ball from Cat Barry. Barry would later score the game-winning goal on a penalty kick, with the game still tied at 1-1.
