On Wednesday we put up a good fight against the undefeated NEC North Danvers at Tedesco losing by a score of 31.5 - 40.5. Everyone contributed points for the Big Blue, but helping to keep the score closer was Senior Steve Santanello and Senior Anthony Moschella both winning their matches by a score of 5.5 - 3.5.

Boys Soccer started off the week with a loss to Beverly with the score of 3-1. Closing the week the boys were able to beat Marblehead with a score of 1-0. Both big blue goals were scored by Dan Johnson this week. 

Girls Soccer: 
Girls' Soccer. O wins, 1 loss.
Julianna Rhoads and Kayla Kornitsky made excellent defensive plays throughout the game against Marblehead. Their tenacious defensive stand made it difficult for the Magicians to get a clear shot in goal. Their level of concentration, anticipation, and hard-nosed defensive stand kept Marblehead to scoring only one goal and such came off of a corner kick. Also brilliant for the Big Blue was Sydney Clark who worked very hard as a defensive midfielder.
