Mascenic 3, Keene 0

The Vikings got their season off to an auspicious start Tuesday with a 3-0 shutout win over Division I Keene.

Emma Lampinen scored a pair of goals and added an assist in the Mascenic win; Lexis Vautour scored the other, and Olivia Shaw and Leah St. John each had assists. 

“We had some really good passing and created a lot of good scoring opportunities,” said head coach Selena Shaw.

Senior Ally Adams earned the shutout in net for the Vikings. 

“Obviously we have a lot to work on,” Shaw said, “but we played hard and had a lot of positive take away.”

Mascenic (1-0) hosts Keene (0-1) Thursday at 4:30 p.m.

BOYS’ SOCCER

Hillsboro-Deering 2,
Conant 1 (2 OT)

New Conant head coach Tom Harvey got a thriller for his first game Monday, as the Orioles lost a close one in double overtime to visiting Hillsboro-Deering.

The Hillcats scored the first goal of the game on a penalty kick and took a 1-0 lead into the half. Conant’s Manny Hodgson tied the game up with a second-half goal, but the Orioles, despite a whopping 34 shots on goal, couldn’t muster another score.

The teams fought through regulation and the first overtime period without a winner. Eventually, Conant’s starting keeper Garrett Somero went down with an injury; his replacement, midfielder Austin Poikenen, played valiantly but ultimately surrendered the game-winner.

“This is game one, and the boys are learning a new system,” Harvey said. “I am very happy with the way they played.”

Conant (0-1) was set to host WLC (0-0) Wednesday after press time; the Orioles play again at WLC Saturday at 11 a.m.
