Conant and ConVal’s crosstown rivalry isn’t a traditional one. The two schools play in different divisions in most sports; in recent memory, Conant has dominated the basketball court while ConVal takes care of business on the pitch. Still, there’s a little something special in the air when the two teams face off for their annual interdivisional meetings.

Fans of either school had plenty of action to choose from Tuesday evening; after the girls teams played their game at ConVal, it was just a quick jaunt over to Franklin Pierce University to see the boys teams get after it under the lights. It was the Cougar fans driving home happy on this night, though; between the two games, not a single Oriole goal was scored, and ConVal won both games by a combined 10-0.

“It’s very tough,” Conant boys coach Cole Griffin said, “because ConVal is just one of those towns where they play together all year round. It’s really hard to compete against a team that just has such chemistry – they’re almost like brothers over there. We’re starting to find that chemistry, but it comes in spurts and it comes a lot less against these quality teams.”

ConVal forward Austin Wheeler scored what would be the game-winning goal early in the first half of ConVal’s 6-0 victory. Wheeler took a beautiful pass from Ian Szep right through two Conant defenders in the box and made his move.

“I knew the goalie was going to come out, so I just slotted it to the left of the keeper,” Wheeler said. “Put it away and that was it.” ConVal’s other goals came from Campbell French, Matt Czerski, Riley Henry Nick Phillips and Dan Schloemer, who scored on a rebound after Nile Hertzler dribbled through four defenders with a series of nifty moves in the box but was turned away by backup Conant keeper Ethan Ahern.

ConVal coach Scott Daniels was happy to get his backups some scoring chances in the second half as they tune up for a potential postseason run.

“My hope is that they get some confidence,” Daniels said. “They work hard every day in practice and we like to reward them all as much as we can and fortunately tonight we had an opportunity to give some guys some time.”

Griffin treated the blowout Orioles loss as a learning experience for his team.

“I try and always point out the things they are doing right,” Griffin said. “They got an opportunity to play on such a great field, they got to play against really good team, so hopefully they are learning from these losses as much as they are learning from whatever I can teach them.”

On the girls side, ConVal jumped out to an early 2-0 lead and never looked back, eventually winning 4-0. Sophomore midfielder Sylvie Holding had a huge game with two goals and assists on the other two (scored by Maura Rapposelli and Keira Bell).

In what’s become the story of the season for Conant, freshman keeper Bethany Hector was peppered with shots and there was only so much she could do to keep them out of the net. Hector made a brilliant save at the 25-minute mark of the second half, leaping up into the top right corner with one outstretched hand to save a header and keep the score close, but it was too little, too late, as ConVal scored again minutes later.

The ConVal girls team (6-7) hosts Hollis-Brookline (6-5) Friday at 4 p.m. Conant’s girls (0-14) travel to Fall Mountain (4-5-3) Friday at 6 p.m.

ConVal’s boys team (8-3-2) host a tough Hollis-Brookline team (11-2) on Saturday at 11 a.m. Conant’s boys team (1-12) hosts Monadnock (2-7-3) Friday at 4 p.m. Conant’s lone win came over Monadnock on Oct. 12.
