By TOMMY SULLIVAN For the Monitor Wednesday, October 29, 2014

A scoring burst at the end of the first half was all the No. 15 Kearsarge boys’ soccer team needed to put away No. 18 Hillsboro-Deering, 2-0, in the first round of the Division III tournament yesterday. Both goals came in the final four minutes of the first half as the Cougars moved on to face second-seeded Prospect Mountain. The Cougars (9-7-1) opened the scoring in the 36th minutes when the Hillcats goalie Connor Lane sent out a failed clearance that was knocked down by Cougar midfielder Brandon Thibodeau. Thibodeau then sent a pass over to a streaking Tad Sternberg, who neatly tucked it under a diving Lane to give the Cougars a 1-0 lead. The Cougars didn’t sit back after the goal. Just three minutes later, they were awarded a corner kick thanks to some relentless pressure. The kick was taken by midfielder Gunner Nurme, and, after a mad scramble in front of the net, the ball fell to Jacob Donovan, who shot the ball off the inside of the far post to give the Cougars and 2-0 lead and the breathing space necessary to put the game away in the second half. For Donovan, the goal was a well-deserved reward for his efforts. The entire offense seemed to run through him, as his link play opened up space on the field for his teammates, and he was able to thread countless through balls on the numerous runs the Cougars took toward the Hillcats goal. “(Donovan) controls the ball well, picks his teammates out, and gets a lot done for us,” Kearsarge Coach Bob Ragazzo said. The Hillcats (7-10) endured a frustrating end to the season, as they scored only two goals in their last six games. However, the leadership of Coach Will Titus and the team’s youth are reasons for optimism heading into next year. “Though we did fall short of where we expected to be as a team, it’s a small senior class so we should be one of the better teams next year,” Titus said. “It’s really working to get to that point; that’s our job now.” The Cougars travel to Prospect Mountain for tomorrow’s second-round game, where they’ll attempt to hand the Timberwolves (16-0) their first loss of the season. The pressure is on the undefeated Timberwolves, something Ragazzo thinks Kearsarge can use to its advantage. “You, know, we get to go play ‘16-0,’ so there’s nothing to lose for us and we’ll just go out and see what the game brings,” he said. 



10/27/14 The varsity finished the season 8-7-1 with a strong win over Conant. We finished in 15th place and we will play Hillsboro-Deering at Colby Sawyer College on Tuesday 10/28. The official bracket will be out shortly.


10/1/14 The varsity lost a tough game to undefeated Hopkinton 2-0. I thought I'd share the Concord Monitor report.

  Hopkinton 2, Kearsarge 0

Key players: Hopkinton – Tucker Windhurst, Joe Cullinan, Tim Jones (assist), Riley McNicholas (two goals), Rob Ferguson (3 saves); Kearsarge – Mike Sullivan (10 saves), Jacob Donovan and Tad Sternberg (strong midfield play)

Highlights/key moments: Windhurst played great defense in the first half and Ferguson made a point-blank save as Hopkinton thwarted a strong Cougars’ attack. In the second half, Cullinan stepped up defensively, playing well at the stopper position. Jones beat three defenders and played the ball across to McNicholas for an easy tap-in goal in the 31st minute. McNicholas scored again in the 62nd minute on an incredible individual effort, taking the ball 40 yards before firing a shot from 20 yards out. Kearsarge hit the post in the second half. Sullivan had several key saves in the last 10 minutes to keep the score close.

Coaches’ quotes: “Tonight we faced (what turned out to be) our toughest opponent of the year in Kearsarge. They played with high energy all night and ran forward in numbers at intelligent times, creating chaos when their backs effectively joined the attack.” – Hopkinton’s Scott Zipke

“We had some chances, but didn’t finish. Hopkinton had a few more chances than us and took care of business. I like the way my team played and competed right to the end of the game.” Kearsarge’s Rob Ragazzo

Records: Hopkinton 10-0-0; Kearsarge 5-4-1

10/1/14 Great win for our JV program over Hopkinton 3-2. The JV are on a roll 6-0
