Week 1 Sports review: Field Hockey, Soccer and Football

Concord-Carlisle Sports had quite a busy week, with football, field hockey, and soccer all having games.

Women’s field hockey went up against Acton-Boxborough on Friday at 6 p.m. in the stadium. There was a lot of confidence and team spirit going into the game, but the final result was not what the team was hoping for; they suffered a 3-0 defeat.

CC Football played Wellesley away on Saturday. As a program, the Raiders outnumbered the Patriots 2-1, but the Patriots were determined to win and dug in early with an interception by sophomore Cam Ladd. By halftime, however, they trailed 14-7 to the Raiders. Wellesley opened the scoring in the second half with a long touchdown pass, but CCHS sophomore Cole Pascucci answered with a touchdown to keep the game within one score at 13-21. Wellesley scored another touchdown to put the game out of reach, and ended up winning 27-13. CC Football has their next game on 9/15/17 at the stadium.

Women’s soccer came up against a supposedly strong Weston team on Friday at home. There was a strong turnout in terms of fan support at the game, and the team came out of the gate strong and never looked back. They scored five goals against Weston in the first half, and four more in the second half, winning the game 9-0. Brenna Robillard scored 3, while Lia Sgarzi and Molly Dibble each scored twice. The final two goals were scored by Avery Little and Annie Jimenez. Both goals were the first for each player this season. Women’s soccer has three games this week, with one on Monday against on LS, one on Wednesday, and one on Saturday night in the stadium.

Men’s soccer played Weston as well on Friday. Despite a 4-0 victory last year against them, they only came away with a draw this year. Despite many chances in both halves, the only CC goal came from Will Patterson. The first home game for the team comes on ‘Kicks for Cancer’ against LS.
