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.”
