Triton boys soccer gave Pentucket all it could handle Friday afternoon, falling 3-2 in a highly competitive game. Pentucket got goals from Matt Tineo, Luke Dickson and freshman Alex Bishop, who scored his first career varsity goal, and also got two assists from Seamus O’Keefe. Triton, meanwhile, got a significant burst of offense against a quality team after only scoring three goals all of last season. The Vikings’ goals were scored by Brendan Dennis and Ben Smith with an assist from Chatham Campbell, and goalie Mark Anthony Glickman made 14 saves to keep Triton in the game.
Sachems’ first win
Pentucket girls soccer picked up its first win of the season on Friday, beating rival Triton 4-2 on the strength of Mackenzie Currie’s three-point afternoon. The junior had two goals and an assist to lead the way offensively, and Jacey Jennings had a goal and an assist, Tess Graham had a goal and Annabelle Sylvanowicz tallied two assists.
Bleau is back
After an injury limited him in Wednesday’s opener, senior Russell Bleau was back in full force on Friday, scoring a header off a corner from Ryan Archer for his first career goal to help Newburyport boys soccer pick up a 1-1 tie against Masconomet. Newburyport nearly got the win after a header by Harry Costello with roughly a minute left went just wide, and goalie Stefan Berlind made five saves to help pull out the draw against the Cape Ann League power.
Georgetown blanks Ipswich
Kenny Laurent continued his hot start to the season, scoring two goals to help lead Georgetown boys soccer to a 3-0 shutout of Ipswich. Laurent, who now has five goals on the year, also had an assist in the win, and Mark Rose scored his first career goal to round out the offense. Coty Angelopulos was terrific on defense as well, and goalies Luke Van Galen and Riley Soucy combined to pick up the shutout.
The Georgetown field hockey team crushed Haverhill on Friday to stay unbeaten on the year, winning 6-0 while not allowing a single shot on goal. Abbie Donahue recorded a hat trick, bringing her total to five goals through just two games, while Katie Hermanson, Vivian Burr and Chloe Sapienza all scored as well.
Georgetown bounces back
Georgetown girls soccer shook off Wednesday’s disheartening last-second loss to Amesbury with a decisive 4-2 win over Ipswich on Friday. The Royals got goals from Elle Schneider, Talia Geberth, Lauren Bartlett and Bridget Cannata, and there were assists from Casey Mahoney, Toni Nakatsugawa and Rylee Lasquade. Georgetown is now 1-1 on the season.
