ConVal 2, Oyster River 0

ConVal got revenge for their only loss of the 2018 regular season on Tuesday, beating Oyster River 2-0 on the road.

In the first half, Del Bonsu-Anane scored off an assist from Taylor Burgess, and in the second, Casey Jordan headed home a Max Shumway cross.

Mather Kipka made six saves in the shutout, his fifth of the season.

ConVal (6-0-1) remains the only unbeaten team in Division II and sits atop the standings, with Lebanon (6-1) just behind. The Cougars travel to Pelham (2-6) Thursday at 4 p.m. 

Conant 2, Derryfield 1

The Orioles grabbed their second win of the season on Tuesday, beating Derryfield in a thrilling contest that head coach Dan Bemis said was competitive right to the final whistle.

 “It was a very exciting victory for us to say the least,” Bemis said.

After a scoreless first half, Ethan Vitello broke the ice for Conant, scoring from the left side of the box on an assist from Anthony Gauthier. 

Derryfield would even things up with six minutes remaining on a penalty kick which keeper Garrett Somero nearly saved, but in the final minute, Gauthier drew a foul in the box to set up a penalty kick for Vitello, who hit it into the right corner of the net and won the game for the Orioles.

“We possessed the ball really well this game with our best ball movement so far this year,” Bemis said.

Conant (2-6) hosts Hinsdale (2-5) Thursday at 4 p.m.

Mascenic 5, Fall Mounta i n 1

The Vikings poured  it on Monday night, scoring early and often to leave Fall Mountain with a victory. 

Nate Wilkins scored twice; Dylan Vaillancourt scored on a header off a Shea Zina throw; Jack Cocozella scored on a coast-to-coast run-and-shoot, and Noah Caballero had a goal and an assist. 

Mascenic head coach Andy Helliesen said Jon Kushner played a great game in the midfield and added two assists.

Mascenic (6-1) is currently fourth in Division III, behind undefeated Gilford, Trinity and Campbell. The Vikings host Raymond (3-4) in a rescheduled game Friday at 4 p.m.

WLC 5, Hinsdale 1

Jack Schwab’s hat-trick was enough to lead the Warriors to a 5-1 victory over Hinsdale Tuesday and put them in second place in Division IV.

Dylan Pfeil, Jacob Boette and Matt Hadley also scored for Wilton-Lyndeborough, as they peppered Pacer keeper Dylan Harden, who put up a valiant effort in net, said WLC head coach Kristin Schwab. 

Kenny Begley played a great offensive game as well, Schwab said, and the return of Troy Brennan from injury shored up the defensive line.

WLC (6-1) is at rival Sunapee (6-1) Thursday at 6 p.m.


ConVal 6, Plymouth 3

Maddy Shippee scored twice for ConVal and Ayla Laro put the Cougars ahead for good on the road at Plymouth Tuesday evening. Kendall Larson added a free kick goal, Nikki Bell put in a penalty kick and Cami Hendrixson scored ConVal’s final tally of the game.

Kara Keiper had two assists and Hendrixson added another. 

ConVal (4-3) ended their three-game skid with the win and looks to keep moving in the right direction in their next game, at Merrimack Valley (3-4) Friday at 4 p.m.

WLC 8, Hinsdale 4

Elisabeth Jacob scored four more goals on Monday at Hinsdale as the Warriors improved to 6-2, fifth in Division IV.

Sophia Sistachs scored a hat trick in the game as well, and Bri Fish put in WLC’s other goal.

Sam Yurcak had two assists, and Eva Hussey, Sam Boette, Avery Krug, Fish, Sistachs and Jacob each had one.

Rama Koudsi made 17 saves in goal.

Jacob, a sophomore,  has now scored 26 goals on the season through eight games, tying her for the most goals in a season by any local high school soccer player on record with the New Hampshire Soccer Coaches Association. The previous leader, Conant’s Jordan Banish, scored 26 goals in the entirety of the 2017 season. Were Jacob’s pace to continue for the remainder of the season, she’d wind up fourth all-time in the single-season scoring ranks. The record is 70 by Derryfield’s Gabi Brummett in 2014.

WLC has a big game at Sunapee (6-1) Thursday at 4 p.m.
