BA Blanks Winchendon

The soccer team had a long two week break to prepare for their home match up against The Winchendon School. The team’s hard work paid off as they shut out the Wapities 3-0 in what Coach Ashenfelter remarked was “One of our best performances to date.” To start off the game, Peter Ventola (Salem, NH) finished a feed from Eddie Demoya assisted (Salem, MA). Demoya then secured a 2-0 lead as he netted an unassisted goal with just over three minutes to go in the first half. The match up was a physical game and Winchendon was fighting for a comeback which led to some chippy plays on both sides of the field. Aidan Harrison (Medfield, MA) put away the insurance goal with 20 minutes left in the game for the 3-0 win.

Coach Ashenfelter was satisfied with the performance commenting afterwards “We played 90 minutes of soccer and did the things we practiced. We had a few cheap shots, but hopefully we will learn from this and let the scoreboard do the talking. We need to finish the game like professionals. We took another step forward this week, and we will use the experience for improvement.”

Soccer Shuts Out CMCC

The Soccer team kept their momentum rolling as they traveled to Central Maine Community College on Wednesday and returned home with a big 6-0 win.

The game was close at the start with Luca Viscomi (Newton, MA) scoring in the first half to give BA a 1-0 lead. The play was back and forth, but BA managed to hold onto the lead. Bridgton hit the field after the half fired up and ready to go. Viscomi tallied two more goals for BA, giving the Wolverines a 3-0 lead. Eddie Demoya (Salem, MA) netted the next two goals, with Peter Ventola (Salem, NH) scoring the last goal of the game to secure the 6-0 win.

Coach Ashenfelter was happy with the outcome saying "it was a good day for Bridgton Soccer. Everyone contributed and played well, and we got our first shutout of the season. Now we will move forward and prepare for Kents Hill this weekend."

BA Overtakes Bowdoin J.V.

The soccer team battled through rain and mud as they took on Bowdoin College’s J.V. team. The two teams faced each other earlier in the week and settled with a 2-2 tie. This time, Bridgton was determined to take away the win. Bowdoin came out strong scoring first eighteen minutes into the game. Luca Viscomi (Newton, MA) finished a pass from Eddie Demoya (Salem, MA) late in the first half to tie things up. Just ten minutes later Will McGowan (Andover, MA) and Will Groves (Walpole, MA) connected as McGowan put away the go ahead goal. After a sloppy play by BA, Bowdoin was awarded a penalty kick, which tied up the game. Not wanting to give up, Demoya scored the game winning goal off a feed from Aidan Harrison (Medfield, MA) to secure the 3-2 win.

Coach Ashenflter was very proud of his team saying “we battled through adversity over and over again, showing great resilience and strong will to win.”

The team hopes to keep the momentum going as they travel to Central Maine Community College to play on Wednesday October 5th at 3:30 P.M.
