BA Reaches 10 Wins

The Bridgton Academy Wolverines reached double digit wins for the first time under second year head coach Kevin Mellon. The Wolverines defeated Tilton School, 8-0 to improve their record to 10-0-1.

Bridgton got the scoring going early on, in the 4th minute Dillon Flynn (Chapel Hill, NC took a feed from Rob Palumbo (Kingston, NH) and found the back of the net. Ten minutes later Flynn would return the favor to make it 2-0. Bridgton played what Jamie White (New Orleans, LA) called, "lock down defense, not allowing a shot." The Wolverines would push the lead to 6-0 at the half on goals from Omar Khartabil (Hampstead, NH), Steve Palumbo (Kingston, NH), Ronaldo Vieira (Framingham, MA) and Ethan Martin (South Burlington, VT).

Coach Mellon was very impressed with the way his team competed, and possessed the ball, holding it for 80% of the game. "We played at a faster pace than normal, which is going to help us going into the remaining games."

In the second half the Black and Gray scored two early goals, in the 47th and 48th minutes by Martin and Steve Palumbo respectively. From that point on the Wolverines possessed the ball and controlled tempo.

On the season Bridgton has outscored opponents 70-9, and in the last six matches have outscored opponents 50-3.

BA next travels to Winchendon on Friday October, 23 at 3:30 PM. The Wolverines defeated Winchendon earlier in the season 6-1, and look to continue with their dominating performances.
