ConVal 1, Kearsarge 0

It may have been another close score, but ConVal head coach Josh Smith said Tuesday’s win at Kearsarge was “dominant.”

The game was scoreless into the 83rd minute, when August Marshall headed in the game’s only goal off a corner kick from Colby Knight.

“Created a lot of chances, just couldn’t find the back of the net until then,” Smith said.

Mather Kipka made two saves.

ConVal (8-0-1) is still tops in Division II with seven games remaining. The Cougars’ tough stretch continues Friday when they host Hollis-Brookline (4-4-1) for homecoming at 3:30 p.m.; ConVal is at No. 2 Lebanon (8-1) on Monday. Lebanon’s only loss was a 1-0 game at ConVal earlier this fall.

Mascenic 9,
Hillsboro-Deering 1

The Vikings won big on the road Tuesday, as Noah Caballero put in a hat-trick in the Mascenic blowout. Nate Wilkins and Joe Cocozella scored two goals apiece and Zack Barthel and Dylan Vaillancourt also scored.

The Vikings were good with their through balls and crosses, and got assists from Trey Shaw (2), Matt Wilkins, Sam Stauffeneker, Sean Agonis, Nate Wilkins and Hayes Pearson.

Goalie Chris Wilkins was tested in net, head coach Andy Helliesen said, and did a great job getting off the line to kill plays before they developed.

Mascenic (8-1) has a huge showdown with undefeated Trinity (9-0) Thursday at 4 p.m. Trinity is currently No. 1 in Division III, just ahead of Campbell (8-0-1), Gilford (9-1) and Mascenic.

Hopkinton 5, Conant 1

The Orioles took an early 1-0 lead Tuesday, but after they lost three out of their four defensive backs to injury in the second half, Hopkinton took advantage and ran away with the game.

Scott LaBrecque scored Conant’s only goal on a nice one-timer off a bounce.

Conant (2-7) hosts Stevens (3-6) Monday and then hosts WLC Wednesday.

Sunapee 3, WLC 1

Sunapee speedster Michael Mullens scored all three of the Lakers’ goals — including his 100th career — to beat the Warriors on Tuesday.

Jack Scwab scored the lone WLC goal on a rocket past the goalie from right outside the box.

Joe Krug made seven saves for the Warriors.

WLC (7-2) is at Concord Christian (4-4-1) Friday and then at Conant Wednesday.


Conant 4, Monadnock 2

Jillian Patria scored all four of Conant’s goals Tuesday on nice shots from distance to give Conant their second win of the season, both over Monadnock.

Haley Bertolamo and Emily Toscano scored for Monadnock.

Conant (2-6-1) hosts Campbell (8-1) Friday at 4 p.m.

Sunapee 7, WLC 1

Going into Tuesday’s game, Sunapee had yet to allow a goal all season, and WLC’s Elisabeth Jacob had scored in every game this season. Something had to give — and it was the Lakers’ goals-against streak, as Jacob netted her 28th of the year. But, Sunapee’s dominance continued as they became just the third team to beat WLC this year.

Rama Koudsi made 23 saves for WLC against the formidable striking of Sunapee.

WLC (7-3) can bounce back at Concord Christian (5-2) Friday.


ConVal 7, Keene 2

Isiah DeBarros had a hat-trick for ConVal against Keene Monday as the Cougars looked improved in their second game of the season. Parker Nason scored two more for ConVal and Angel St Pierre and Mary Quintanilha had one each.

“The teamwork and passing was much better than the Exeter game,” said head coach Dick Ellingwood. “The partners did a great job creating scoring chances for the players.

ConVal (1-1) is at Nashua North Monday.
