Athletic News:

Girls’ Field Hockey played a great game yesterday, even though the final score was not in our favor. We played a great game, spreading the field, anticipating the pass, and kept possession of the ball for the majority of the game. Morgan Saylor and Gianna Cardinale did a great job controlling the ball throughout the field, giving us opportunities to move up. Kelli Mann scored our goal. Communication was evident among the defense showing how we can stand together as a team even when things don't necessarily go our way. Way to fight hard ladies.

The Girls' Soccer program would like to thank the friends, family and faculty that supported our Kick for Pink effort on Tuesday. On the field, paced by an Emma Smith hat trick, a Jordan Roberts tally and the steadfast choreography of Ella Manning, the Lady Bobcats defeated Hall by a score of 4 to 1. Maria Galley had 4 saves for the win. The girls play again Thursday at Tolland.

Athletic News:

Friday’s PINK OUT game against Simsbury was a success! With an overall score of 5-2 our SW Bobcats game out strong from the start. Leading us with goals was Bella Sanchez with her first hat trick of the season! Lindsey Tortora and Kayden Burke played well together on the right side to help transition and move the ball up and down the field. And our defensive diamond had outstanding communication in the back field. The Bobcats held their ground keeping the field wide and keeping possession of the ball for majority of the game. Great team work ladies!

Congratulations to South Windsor Bobcat Football program as they swept the East Hartford Hornets this past week. The freshman team started the winning streak on Thursday by defeating East Hartford at 12-8 with Sam Meleshenko and Trevor Kniffen on the receiving end of two touchdown passes from Ethan LaGuardia. Colin Berry along with Josh Pearson led the defensive. On Saturday, the JV team defeated East Hartford 24-7 with Emeka Okoh catching two touchdowns from Tyrone Casey including a sensational one handed grab. The defense led by Josh Colon was stingy all day only allowing 7 points and scoring 8 of its own. 2 on a safety and 6 when Josh Colon picked up a fumble and took it in for a touchdown. Friday afternoon, Varsity defeated East Hartford 28 to 14. Anthony Bellezzi had an outstanding game behind a dominating offensive line. Two touchdown passes, including one on the first play from the line of scrimmage to Malik Montgomery and the last on a pass to Jack Gorborino to put the game out of reach. In between Bellezzi scored twice on Quarterback sneaks. The defense led by Jack Perra had its best game of the year only allowing two touchdowns and shutting out the Hornets in the second half. Next for the Cats will be Hall High school during Homecoming week.
