Mystic Valley Boys Soccer Makes Tourney

 

The Mystic Valley boys’ soccer team joined the girls’ soccer team and the volleyball team in qualifying for the MIAA Tournament. The Eagles played two very tough games, tying Greater Lawrence (1-1) and losing to Lynn Tech (8-0) last week but managed to get into the tournament. They finished the season tied for second place in the league with North Shore-Essex Agricultural COOP.

The difference came in last Tuesday’s game against Greater Lawrence. The boys had to tie to make the tournament and Greater Lawrence needed to win their next four consecutive games in order to get in. With a lot of young players seeing a lot of playing time the Eagles team had a tough time of it. Greater Lawrence scored the first goal of the game late in the second half and that made things look a little dire for the boys but captains, Giuseppe Iacovone, Hari Perisic and Joseph Dailey all stepped up and kept the Eagles pushing offensively. With two minutes left, 7th grader Julian Ospina made a great pass to Scott Nguyen who put it in the back of the net from the far side of the 18. It was a great shot and the game ended seconds after that. “It was a testament to a group of young men that I have asked to step up so many times this year and have done just that. Now, we are getting ready for our second consecutive year in the tournament in our second year as a varsity team. It’s a huge accomplishment by itself and I am very proud of them” said Coach Carlos-Luis Brown after the game.

 

Mystic Valley Crew Finishes Season Strong

 

The Mystic Valley crew team’s season ended with a trip to 2012 MPSRA Fall Championships, which was held on Sunday in East Harwich, Ma.  It was a very busy day on Long Pond, as the crews were striving to finish their race while battling strong winds and big waves brought on by Hurricane Sandy on the way to the finish line.  

The boys varsity four led by cox:  Alex Green, stroke and team captain Marco Hanna, Ben Horton, Mario Hanna and Joe Finn  finished 5th with the time of 10:02.66 , losing by 6 seconds to the 4th placed Worcester Public crew.  

The girls’ varsity boat compromised of:  cox Jessica Lieu, team captain and stroke, Fayrouz Farhane, Emily Kelly, Asha Kurian and Amanda Valenti put on display of poise and power.  They finished in the heart breaking 4th place with the time of 11:07.77 and only 2 seconds behind the 3rd placed Westford-Littleton crew and ahead of Cambridge Rindge crew.  

The boys JV 4+ finished in the 8th place, only 1 second behind Westford-Littleton crew.  The JV boat was comprised of:  cox Nick Saponaro, Raphael Stigliano, Seamus Gallagher, Joe Whitlow and Ben Lieu.  The novice race was cancelled due to the difficult rowing conditions.

Mystic Valley Cross Country Competes in CAC Championship

The Mystic Valley boys and girls cross country teams raced in the Commonwealth Athletic Conference League Championship on Saturday morning. The girls team came in 5th place overall out of 11 scoring teams. The boys team came in 6th place overall out of 9 scoring teams.
The race was highlighted by Sophomore Brittany Lin who finished in 14th place overall in the girls varsity race, and will therefore be named a CAC Cross Country All-Star and will attend an awards banquet on November 19th.
After the meet, Coach Jon Bush said that “Both teams had very successful seasons and should be proud of the way they competed. We still have a few more weeks of practice to get ready for State qualifiers, so there's still more work to do. The future of Mystic Valley Cross Country looks bright if the runners keep up their work ethic and drive to become better every day.”
