GIRLS’ SOCCER

WLC 7, Conant 1

Wilton-Lyndeborough junior Elisabeth Jacob tallied her 100th career point Wednesday night to cement her as one of the Warriors’ all-time greats. Jacob had four goals and an assist against Conant as WLC cruised to a win.

“She joins an elite group,” said head coach Dan Ayotte, and as far as anyone can remember is the first player in Wilton history to accomplish that feat. This is an incredible achievement for a very talented player.”

Jacob already has 16 goals this season in just five games. 

It was a big night all around for the Warriors. Sophia Sistachs rang in her 18th birthday with a goal; Brooke Lane and Emily Dubois also scored for WLC, and Sam Boette made her return to the field after tearing her ACL in the regular-season finale last fall. 

Conant’s lone goal came from freshman Irelynd Aucoin, as the Warriors otherwise stifled the Orioles. 

“Wilton came out strong and never allowed us to find a rhythm,” head coach Adam Patria said. 

Conant (1-5) hosts Monadnock Wednesday at 4 p.m. WLC (2-3) hosts Concord Christian Friday at 3 p.m.

BOYS’ SOCCER

Mascenic 2, Conant 1

The Vikings and Orioles played a shortened game in wet and wild conditions in Jaffrey Wednesday afternoon, with Mascenic stealing a 2-1 win when officials called the game due to lightning. 

“Players were slipping everywhere,” Mascenic head coach Jeremy Taylor said. 

Conant got on the board first when freshman Thomas Harvey sent a beautiful cross to junior Mason Devost, who tapped it in for a goal. Conant controlled possession for much of the first half, head coach Tom Harvey said, but their struggles to score continued. 

“We are getting better at it,” Harvey said, “but we are still letting a lot of opportunities slip by.”

Mascenic evened the scored when Dylan Barthel sent a through ball to Jack Cocozella, who launched the ball from about 40 yards out and skidded it past Conant keeper Sam Kalloch. 

Sean Agonis scored off a Joe Cocozella cross just before the half; both teams came out for the second half, but were unable to complete the game before the lightning storm rolled in with about 25 minutes left to play and the officials called it in favor of Mascenic.

“It’s a lousy way to lose a game,” Harvey said. “I feel bad for the boys who played so well.”

Conant (2-3-1) gets another crack at Mascenic (4-1)  Saturday at 10 a.m. in New Ipswich. 

GIRLS’ VOLLEYBALL

Campbell 3, Mascenic 1

The Vikings lost a tough road battle at Campbell Wednesday evening. 

Freshman Lindsey Coponen continued her good start, playing virtually error-free with the lion’s share of Mascenic’s passing opportunities. Annika Martel led the Vikings with six kills, and Mackenzie Cormier continued to grow into her role as setter, head coach Karen Gibson said. 

Mascenic (0-3) travels to Bishop Guertin Tuesday at 4 p.m.
