Day 1 Recap: Mailloux Leads Pinkerton Past Central

Marley Mailloux picked up one goal and one assist, as Pinkerton beat Manchester Central last night, 2-1. Mailloux's assist came eight minutes into the game, assisting Emma Davis. Nothing would happen until the second half when Central's Cam Casey would tie the game at one. However, four minutes later Ava Dorci found Mailloux, off a corner, to take the lead 2-1, and eventually win the game. 

Pinkerton's Khaliyah Ellis picked up four saves, but made one crucial save, that could have tied the game (pictured below), she also took out one of her teammates in the process, but she was okay.

Meaghan Michaud moved the ball well, Taylor Marchman played well for being her first varsity game, and Mari Shea looks very deadly on counter attacks. The surprise of the night was sophomore defender Sarah Collins, we said Pinkerton's defense would probably be average this year, but if Collins continues to play the way she did last night, by the end of the season she will be one of the best defenders in the state.

Fair warning to all D1 teams, if Pinkerton catches you on the counter, your goalie better be awake, because they are fast!

Bedford Sneaks Past Concord in OT

The first game of the season had the first goal of the season, scored by Bedford's Chamberlain Bell, the first stroke of the season, which was saved, and the first overtime of the season, which Bedford won 3-2, thanks to Emily O'Keefe.

Concord controlled most of the game, but they just couldn't score, yes they had two but should have had more. They had two one on one opportunities in regular time, and two more in overtime, but couldn't put anything away. However, just like Pinkerton, fair warning to all D1 teams, they are very fast on the counter.

Concord's Haley Munroe looks very lethal on counters, and freshman midfielder Maria Armaganian looks to be very promising. Armaganian is quick and agile with the ball; she can pass, play defense, and get shots on target. There's a good chance she will be the heartbeat of Concord's team for the next four years.


Portsmouth 7, Oyster River 0
