Kearsarge at Laconia 10/31/13

No. 8 Laconia 4, No. 9 Kearsarge 3

Kearsarge (10-6-1) had its offense going but couldn’t keep up with Laconia (12-5) in their second-round matchup, as the Sachems started the scoring and got two crucial consecutive goals in the second half to put the Cougars away. Kearsarge did make a late run with two goals in the last 11 minutes of the game, but didn’t have enough time to complete a comeback after pulling it back to 4-3 with only a minute left to play. Senior Bobby Lauster scored two goals in his best game of the season, and Andrew Van Hooydonk had a goal and an assist to lead the Kearsarge offense. Laconia started the scoring in the 22nd minute before Kearsarge tied it through Lauster in the 33rd. The Sachems then went on to score the next three goals, going up 2-1 in the 36th minute before getting two big goals around the midway point of the second half (in the 57th and 63rd minutes). Van Hooydonk got the comeback attempt going for Kearsarge, scoring on an assist by Nick Bailey before Lauster got his second with just a minute left. The following Kearsarge seniors played well in their final games as Cougars: defenders Reed Bell and Karver Bosela, midfielders Lauster and Roudy Rehor, and forwards Bailey and Van Hooydonk.

Kearsarge at Mascoma 9/19/13
Kearsarge 4, Mascoma 0 Andrew Van Hooydonk scored two second-half goals and assisted on the Cougars’ opening tally, leading Kearsarge (4-1-1) to its fourth consecutive win against Mascoma (1-6). Persistence and patience were the keys to victory, according to Cougars Coach Rob Ragazzo, whose team overcame a slow start before breaking the deadlock in the 23rd minute. Jacob Donovan had the opening goal and Bobby Lauster’s strike in the 39th minute (assisted by Nick Bailey) gave Kearsarge a 2-0 halftime lead. Lauster also assisted on Van Hooydonk’s first goal 10 minutes into the second half. Mike Sullivan made four saves to Kearsarge’s first shutout of the season, which was also made possible by the play of Reed Bell and Karver Bosela in the central defense.

Kearsarge at Pelham 9/13/13

From Concord Monitor Sports 9/14/13

Kearsarge 4, Pelham 3

Andrew Van Hooydonk scored two goals, including the game-winner with two minutes remaining, to lead Kearsarge (2-1-1) over Pelham (2-2). The game started in exciting fashion, with Jacob Donovan scoring for the Cougars 22 seconds into the match and then with Pelham scoring an equalizer in just the third minute to tie the game. Pelham broke a 1-1 halftime tie, but goals from Nick Bailey and Van Hooydonk put Kearsarge back on top, 3-2, The end of the game was just as dramatic, with the Pythons tying the game 67th minute on a penalty kick before Van Hooydonk won the ball in a scramble in the box and put it past the keeper for the win. Kearsarge goalie Mike Sullivan (eight saves) “played an absolutely fantastic game” and “did a little of everything,” according to Coach Rob Ragazzo, including stopping two breakaway attempts. Central defenders Karver Bosela and Reed Bell anchored the back line.

JUST LIKE THEY DREW IT UP Kearsarge boys win on picturesque goal

Kris Bosela was the difference maker in the Kearsarge boys' soccer team's 1-0 victory over Raymond last night.

The game's lone goal came as Griffin Howe took the ball down the right side and won the near post. After a crossing pass to Bosela, the Cougars had the lead.

"As a coach, it was exactly what you like to see," Kearsarge Coach Rob Ragazzo said. "It was a picture-perfect goal."

In the second half, Kearsarge played a man down, but was still able to hold Raymond scoreless. Owen Dayton and Reed Bell led the defensive effort and Casey Laughinghouse was a rock in goal with 16 saves. With the man advantage, Raymond stepped up its offensive pressure and broke through the defense on numerous occasions, only to be shut down by Laughinghouse.

With four games remaining on the schedule, Ragazzo said he is happy with how his team has come together toward the end of the regular season.

"We're improving as the season goes on," he said. "We would like to bring this momentum into the postseason."

The win was Kearsarge's third shutout of the season and improves the team's record to 6-5. The Cougars will look to stay above .500 at home today against Stevens. Kearsarge defeated Stevens on Sept. 28, 2-0.



Sunday, September 4
Kearsarge 4, Hillsboro 2

Kearsarge 4, Hillsboro-Deering 2

Kearsarge broke a 2-2 tie midway through the second half for the home win over H-D (1-1).

The Cougars (2-0) led 2-0 at halftime after Nick Iacopino and Roudy Rehor found the net, but the Hillcats fought their way back into the game in quick fashion. Greg Stevens latched onto a loose ball from an H-D corner kick 10 minutes into the second half, and Kevin Gidari scored off a free kick three minutes later to tie the score.

Kearsarge pulled ahead at the 18-minute mark after Griffin Howe scored with an assist from Kris Bosela. Owen Dayton scored an insurance goal on an assist by Rehor in the closing minutes. Bosela had two assists, while Graham Roberts and Reed Bell played well on defense. Cougars goalkeeper Casey Laughinghouse made six saves.

For the Hillcats, Brett Bennett had nine saves in net, Andrew Hudson played well on the offensive end, and Alex Mellen led the team defensively.

A story about former Kearsarge varsity keeper Brett Bascom
Men's Soccer Battles With Wesleyan For Scoreless Draw Middletown, Conn. - September 13, 2011 - The Springfield College men's soccer team earned its second scoreless draw in its last three games as the Pride battled to a 0-0 tie at Wesleyan University in non-conference action Tuesday afternoon. With the tie, Springfield remains unbeaten this season as it stands at 3-0-2, as it shutout Wesleyan for the first time since 1990. The Cardinals are now 1-0-1. Springfield appeared to take a 1-0 lead early in the second half, as the Pride sent a header out of a crowd into the Wesleyan net at the 51:53 mark, but an offsides call negated the score. Wesleyan also missed a chance to jump on the scoreboard in the 10th minute, as junior Evan Hazelett hit the right post with the game's first shot at 9:26. That would be the closest either team would come to scoring as the bulk of play in the match took place in the midfield. Springfield freshman goalkeeper Brett Bascom tallied four saves in the Pride net. Bascom has not allowed a goal in three games this season, spanning 265 minutes, and has racked up 11 saves in the process. The shutout was the third of the season for Springfield in five games. Wesleyan junior keeper Adam Purdy had three saves as the Cardinals posted their first shutout of the year. The Pride open up New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) play on Saturday afternoon at MIT. Kick-off is scheduled for 2:00 pm as Springfield will play its second match of a four-game road swing.

Kearsarge defeats Monadnock at home
Boys' Soccer

Kearsarge 6, Monadnock 2

Brett Bascom made two saves as the Cougars took a 4-0 halftime lead, then switched to striker for the second half and scored a pair of goals as Kearsarge improved to 6-2. Monadnock dropped to 1-7.

Kearsarge dominated from the outset, as Derek Palmer took a feed from Owen Dayton and opened the scoring three minutes into the game. Raul Carpenter made it 2-0 at 5:30 when he headed in a pass from Mike Andrews. Quinn McDonough made it 3-0 with an assist from Tristan Amaral at 24:00, then Asa Weisberg closed out the first-half scoring with an unassisted goal from 45 yards away at 32:00.

Bascom scored a minute into the second half with an assist from McDonough to make it 5-0, then capped Kearsarge's scoring and made it 6-1 off a feed from Jack Holmes at 12:00.

Casey Laughinghouse played goal for Kearsarge in the second half and made six saves.

Cougars Claw Back

Cougars claw back

Kearsarge rallies to beat H-D, 3-2

From Monitor Staff Reports

September 3, 2010

Hillsboro-Deering led 1-0 at the half. The Hillcats jumped ahead 2-0 less than two minutes into the second half. But H-D didn't keep the pedal to the metal and the Kearsarge boys' soccer team responded with three goals in a 20-minute span for a 3-2 come-from-behind victory yesterday.

The game-winner came off a loose-ball scrum in front of the H-D box, following a corner kick. Kearsarge Coach Rob Ragazzo credited Raul Carpenter with the game-winner, while it was called an own-goal in the home (H-D) scorebook.

The Hillcats had two good chances to tie the game in the closing minutes, but sent both shots over the crossbar.Andrew Hudson scored H-D's first-half goal on a beautiful cross from Kevin Gidari. Senior co-captains Austin Provencher and Theo Brown hooked up for H-D's second goal, with Brown feeding Provencher on a long pass from his defensive line that found the striker with enough room to bury it in a low corner.

Kearsarge had the slight edge in possession, as well as shots on target, but couldn't get on the board early thanks to the efforts of H-D goalie Zach Fraser. It was the Cougars' bench that supplied a much-needed spark in the second half that led to the scoring outburst. Fraser finished the game with eight saves, but in the second half it seemed the number of shots he faced caught up to him. Cougar freshman Quinn McDonough broke through first, scoring 12 minutes into the second half on a pass from Kam Bosela. Jack Holmes tied things up with 11 minutes left on a loose ball.

Cougars goalkeeper Brett Bascom saved two shots. 

Just a little disclaimer on local news stories: I call or e-mail in information after each game to several newspapers. What they choose to print and how they write a story is completely up to them. I actually credited Mike Andrews, Dominic Torro, Josh Herrmann, Nick Iacopino, and Quinn McDonough as having made a difference in the second half. The Monitor choose to just refer to them as the Cougar bench. Anyone who saw the game knows how hard all of the players worked.

Kearsarge at Hopkinton
Throwing it away
Hopkinton coach's warning comes true
Monitor staff
September 30, 2009 - 6:59 am

   
Hopkinton Coach Scott Zipke warned his players at halftime about the need to win the long throw-ins Kearsarge was playing into the box. And at the 76-minute mark, his warning proved prophetic.

That's when Joe Ilnicki headed in a Remi McDonough throw to break a 1-all tie and give the Cougars a 2-1 win over the Hawks in an inter-class match.

"He'd been throwing it long all game," Ragazzo said.

Jerel Ward opened the scoring 25 minutes in when he deflected a direct kick from Adrian Whitcomb at the 6-yard box.

The Hopkinton offense was tepid in the first half. They relied heavily on crosses from the wings which were steered away by the Cougars defense. The Hawks (6-2-1) controlled the ball better through the midfield in the second half, earning six corners in the period.

One corner, dealt in low and hard from Kris Abildgaard, deflected off a Kearsarge defender for the Hawks' only goal in the 67th minute.

According to Zipke, it was "fantastic play" from the Kearsarge keeper, Brett Bascom (six saves), that sealed the win for Kearsarge (6-2-1). He "single-handedly saved at least two goals" by coming out of the goal aggressively to deal with a fast break and tipping a shot over the cross bar.

"It's nothing but a positive thing for us to be playing Class I teams," said Zipke, whose team is Class M's three-time defending champion, "especially a team as good as Kearsarge. ...I'd like to play all the Class I teams in the area twice a season," to better prepare for the playoffs, he added.

Kearsarge coach Rob Ragazzo credited good team defense for the victory, citing Tristan Amaral, Noah Marsh, Graham Roberts and Connor Rockwell for their performances in the back.

Both coaches described the game as well-played and well-matched. "Both teams had good opportunities," said Ragazzo. "I feel fortunate we ended up on the better side of the score."

John Stark Boys soccer at Kearsarge

By Rob Ragazzo  

Today’s game was one for the record books. In my 21 years of coaching at Kearsarge we have never gotten off to this quick of a start, three goals in the first 4:30 of the game.  I thought coming in John Stark would be a very tough game. Their 1-4 record didn’t accurately reflect the quality of their team.  The previous game they had taken an exceptional Coe-Brown team to over time losing 1-0.I told our players before the game how important this one was and that getting off to a good start was critical.  We worked the ball around and two minutes into the game we earned a throw in down near the John Stark goal. Remi McDonough, who has a good long throw, sent the ball deep in front of the goal. Jerel Ward was able to just give it the slightest touch and deflect it past the keeper. Josh Levandowski the John Stark senior keeper is in my opinion one of the best in Class I, getting that one buy him was a fantastic start. On the ensuing kickoff we won the ball back and Griffin Howe worked the ball down the right side of the field. Howe drove deep into the right corner and played an accurate serve to the far post for an on rushing Ward to head home (2:30), a picture perfect goal from my stand point while Stark was still reeling from the first one.  Just two minutes later at 4:30 we had another opportunity to use McDonough’s long throw. Remi sent one into the 6 yard box again and Noah Marsh, coming up from his spot at center back, received the ball at his feet, fought off a few defenders and placed the ball past the Keeper.   The rest of the first half was a bit of back and forth. Both teams had some excellent opportunities to score. Brett Bascom was very good in goal for us. He ended up with 12 saves.  Our reserve players were able to get some valuable experience and rest the starters. Graham Roberts, Mike Andrews, Jack Holmes, Dom Torro, and Raul Carpenter were particularly strong off the bench. In the second half John Stark showed their resilience and came out with a lot of energy. They had a shot off the post and several real testers for Bascom. Kearsarge also had several good opportunities to increase our lead.  Dre Whitcomb had a perfect full volley from the right side that just whistled by the post.  Noah Marsh, Tristan Amaral, Connor Rockwell, Ryan Foss, and Graham Roberts anchored the defense to help Bascom get the shutout. The Cougars improve to 4-2 and have a little rest before we play at Merrimack Valley next Tuesday.

Coach Ragazzo
I thought some of our players and fans might get a kick out of seeing a picture of Coach Ragazzo from my senior year (1969-70)at H.F. Carey High School in New York. How about that hair!

Kearsarge Wins at Plymouth
PLYMOUTH, NH9/11/09By Rob Ragazzo 

The Plymouth game was one I'll remember for a long time. They have an excellent soccer pitch. One of the best grass fields in class I - really flat and a smooth surface. I was thinking we would perform well on that surface. I also told the team before the game that Plymouth has often been a very tough place for us to play. We started out moving the ball very well and controlling much of the play. We had several great chances to score, but just like the Steven's game we were struggling to find the back of the net. We scored with about 15 min. to go in the first half.  Remi McDonough used his long throw in to get the ball in front of the goal and when it came all the way down to the ground Adrian Whitcomb was able to control it and shoot it past the keeper.  We (the coaches) told the team at half time we got away from what we have been doing best after that and started to play too many long balls. We just needed to settle down and play our game.

 

I wish I had the answer to the magic halftime talk. After all these years of coaching I still can't predict how a team will respond coming out of the half. We were pretty much totally asleep to start the second half. I do think we were tired. We didn't have starting right midfielder Griffin Howe and he is an important part of our sub pattern to rest the central midfielders.  So Jerel Ward and McDonough had played the whole first half. Raul Carpenter got the start in place of Howe and did a good job. The four backs (Tristan Amaral, Noah Marsh, Connor Rockwell, Ryan Foss) had logged a lot of time as well. In any case 1 minute into the second half Plymouth earned a direct free kick from about 30 yards out on the left side. We didn't defend it well and the shot went into the top of the goal.  I didn't feel like we were really in trouble until Plymouth knocked in another one 23.40 in to the second half. Whitcomb is recovering from sore calves and he had played his maximum minutes for the day. We looked tired and it was a very physical game. We made an adjustment and moved McDonough to striker and one minute after Plymouth took the lead Remi had the ball at his feet looked up from about 35 yards out and sent a curving ball over the keepers head for the equalizer.  Both teams had several scary chances to score. Noah Marsh playing in the midfield got the game winner with 7 minutes left. Graham Roberts helped out on defense and we had key minutes from Dom Torro, Mike Andrews, Matt Wilson, and Jack Holmes.

 

The JV won 4-1

2009 Season opener at John Stark - 2-0 win

Friday 8/28/09

Kearsarge at John Stark The season opener for both teams started as I expected with both teams proceeding cautiously and playing safely as players shook off some first game nervousness. The fields at Kearsarge and John Stark couldn’t be more different and the wide (almost 75 yards) flat field took some time to adjust to. (Don’t end a sentence with a preposition?)  Both teams settled in and play went back and forth. Remi McDonough had a long, hard, strike that went just wide. Noah Marsh got his head to a well served corner but missed over the top. Matt Miller and Adrian Whitcomb applied pressure up front, but couldn’t find the back of the net. John Stark had a few opportunities and Brett Bascom was solid in goal. The half ended at 0-0. At halftime I told the team we were winning more than our share of  balls, but I thought we weren’t taking care of the “second ball” what you do just after a teammate has won the 50-50 battle. We also thought we could play some quicker, longer balls and maybe get behind their defense. As it turned out our first goal (7:35) came from good possession play and Tristan Amaral, one of our center backs, carrying the ball out of the back. As Amaral came out of the back across half field he was looking for a teammate to pass the ball off. All of our players were making runs and were well marked. But John Stark wasn’t expecting Amaral to keep coming and he was unmarked all the way to just outside the penalty box. So he looked at the goal and just “cracked it”. It was a great shot and blew past the keeper.  That goal really gave us some momentum and I think our players could sense our opportunity to get a win at JSHS, always a very tough place to play. At 15:00 into the second half there was a sloppy play at the back for JS and I’m not even sure exactly what happened, but Jerel Ward pounced on the chance and knocked in a loose ball to put us up 2-0. Bascom had a break away stop early in the 2nd half that could have changed the game if John Stark scored first. He had seven saves.  Our back four of Amaral, Connor Rockwell, Noah Marsh, and Ryan Foss were excellent. Remi McDonough and starting midfielders Ward, Griffin Howe, and Joe Ilnicki did a nice job of winning many of the battles and playing “18 to 18”. We had quality minutes off the bench from Matt Wilson, Graham Roberts, Jack Holmes, Mike Andrews and Raul Carpenter. I know we couldn’t have secured the win without them. 

The team was really excited about this victory. We’ve been working hard and really wanted to get the season started on a good note.

 

JV defeated John Stark 6-1
