The fall high school sports season has finally kicked in, with many local teams taking the field over the last week. So let's get to it.
The Leland & Gray boys' soccer team got off to a fast start in their season-opener on the road in Windsor, cruising to a 7-1 win over the Yellow Jackets.
After Windsor's David Young scored the first (and only) goal five minutes into the match, it was all Rebels after that.
After Tyler Russell scored the next two goals including one on a penalty kick, Leland & Gray dominated the rest of the way, getting two goals each from Noah Chapin and Sean Stein and another from Colin Nystron.
Gabe Pozzi was solid in the net for the Rebels after giving up that first goal, collecting four saves on the night as the Rebel defense also played a strong game in stifling the Yellow Jacket offense.
The Bellows Falls field hockey team got off to a rough start, dropping a 4-0 decision to rival Springfield in Westminster.
The Lady Cosmos got two goals from Sarah Trombley and one from Kayla Perham in the win, while the Lady Terriers continue to work with a very young and under-manned squad.
Staying in Bellows Falls, the Lady Terrier soccer team hung tough, but couldn't quite overtake Fair Haven in the first round of the John Werner Tournament, dropping a tough, 1-0 decision to the Lady Slaters in Arlington.
Terrier goal keeper Tia Billado had a great game for BF, letting only one goal slip by which turned out to be the difference in the match. The lone goal was scored by Fair Haven's Chelsea Murray.
"We played pretty well for our first game, we'll just kept plugging away," BF coach John Broadly told reporters after the game.
