Hebron Can't Hold onto the Wolverines

In their last home game of the season, the Wolverine soccer team came out as strong as ever. With a few additional Wolverines in the mix, the team worked hard to secure their 5-2 win. Noel Rix (Rye, NH) started off with a goal assisted by Jordan Stoddart (Brampton, ON). Not long after Stoddart finished a pass from Marlon Ramalho (Framingham, MA). Hebron got lucky when they snuck one past Wolverine goalie Marco Spisso (Highland Falls, NY). With the score close at 2-1 Stoddart helped BA pull ahead with a beautiful unassisted goal making it 3-1. Hebron put up a small fight and tallied their second, and last, goal of the night. Stoddart and Ramalho met up again when Stoddart earned his hat trick for the game. Ramalho scored BA’s insurance goal late in the second half off a pass from Jason Hudson (Raleigh, NH).

The Soccer team will travel to Phillips Exeter Academy this Saturday to play at 7:00 P.M.

Soccer Shutout Tilton

The soccer team had a great week, even after a last minute cancellation earlier in the week the team had to change their game plan and get ready to face the Tilton School. The teams hard work resulted in a 5-0 shutout win over Tilton.

Bridgton didn’t waste any time scoring early in the first half when Jordan Stoddart (Brampton, ON) capitalized on a rebound from a header by Marlon Ramalho (Framingham, MA). BA had a number of quality chances but could not extend the lead going into the half. After what must have been an inspiring pep talk at the half, Bridgton came out and scored four times in the second half. Stoddart added two more goals assisted by Michael Jacques (Tolland, CT) and Noel Rix (Rye, NH), and drew a penalty kick that Ramalho turned into the fourth goal. After hitting the crossbar three times in a row, a determined Jacques placed a ball in the back of the net for BA’s fifth and final goal of the contest. The Wolverine defenders had what the coaching staff called their best performance of the season.

Coach Ashenfelter was very pleased with the guy’s performance saying, “we have been talking about putting together a complete performance, and this was our best showing thus far. They were focused during pre-game, played hard and smart for a full 90 minutes, and maintained composure in the final minutes to close out the game and finish the day in a professional manner. We will look to carry this momentum into a critical week and our next matchup with Hebron.”

On Wednesday the team will host Hebron Academy at 3:00 P.M.
