  1. Varsity Girls Game Report - The Varsity Girls could not overcome the stingy Cohen defense. They went into halftime down 2-0. They managed a goal in the second but still took the 3-1 loss. Addi Laslie scored the only goal on a beautiful shot after Paige Sawyer put the ball past the defense. The girls had a great second half!


  • JV Girls Game Report - The JV Girls pulled off an amazing win. Cohen scored the first goal just under 2 minutes into the game. That was where the scoring ended for Cohen. Ellsworth's first goal was scored off a great shot by Kiera Springer. The ball was deflected by the goalie after a blazing shot by Elizabeth Frost. The game winner was scored by Natalie Sawyer on a direct kick that sailed over the goalies head. The Ellsworth defensive crew of Bianca Gilmore, Kelsie Lambert, Kaela Springer and Mariah Rossi with goalkeeper Libby Kohr fought hard all game and kept the Cohen scoring at 1.


  • The varsity boys soccer team went to the Queen City yesterday to take on the Eagles of Cohen. Both teams came to play and it was a great game. After being down 0-1, David Baugh scored a goal assisted by Miles Palmer and Peter Keblinsky. Cohen scored again, taking the lead, but only briefly as Keegan Omlor found himself at the goal mouth with nothing but open net to shoot into. Keegan was assisted by David. After battling back and forth for the rest of the game, one final goal was scored by Peter on an assist by David. Luke Perry, Owen Frank, Tanner Seura, and Keegan all played great defense in front of goalie Hunter Curtis. Midfielders Chance Mercier, Liam Stephenson, Daniel Howie, and Michael Palmer all contributed with timely defensive plays and great passes leading to scoring opportunities. Great game boys! Up next: game at Brewer on Friday.


Due to the number of boys soccer players needing some rest and time to focus on school work, practice plans for today (Wednesday 10/11) will be slightly different. Instead of practice on the field, players are strongly urged to stay after in the health room to have an after school study hall session to work on schoolwork.
