The Newport Field Hockey team continued its winning ways with a hard-fought 2-1 victory. Bow entered the game with a 6-2 record and showed why when they scored on a misplayed ball in front of the Tiger cage and jumped out to a 1-0 lead with only 2:02 gone in the game. The Tiger defense settled down and held Bow in check for the rest of the afternoon. The Tigers tied the game with 9:05 left in the half when co-captain Chrissy Merritt scored her first varsity goal on a penalty corner. The Bow goalkeeper had fallen on top of the ball and Chrissy buried the penalty shot into the far left hand corner. The Tigers took the lead for good with 18:09 left in the game when Kyrstin Kibbey scored off an assist from Kennedy Pysz and Hailey Perry. Stacia Dame recorded seven saves in net for the Tigers. The Tigers return to action this Friday when they play host to Monadnock for their homecoming game.
The JV field hockey team improved to 5-2-1 when they defeated Bow 2-0. Selina Coronis and Barbara Perry scored for the Tigers while Elizabeth Bennett and Madison Sanville turned in strong performances.
Newport JV football: won 20-7 vs Gilford-Belmont yesterday. Cameron Ackerman caught all three touchdowns thrown by three different players (D. McNamara, T. Sharron and K. Rossiter). Our run game was pretty good thanks to the offensive line. Yi Han, Tyler Sharron and Logan Barry all had multiple break out runs. Defensively we dug in after giving up a touchdown on the opening drive holding them scoreless the remainder of the game. Dennis Borcuk, Jr.
10-4-14 Varsity soccer: We had a great homecoming game against Hinsdale. The girls came out with intensity and played that way throughout in front of a well attended crowd on a cold rainy day. The girls controlled play from start to finish. It was nice to have our girls getting the majority of shots and giving Mariah a little breather. We finished the half with a 2-0 lead. The goals were scored by freshman Haley McNamara and senior Jordan Howard. Unfortunately, although, we controlled the ball on our half the entire second half as well we weren't able to finish any of our opportunities. The game finished with a 2-0 victory. We are now 4-6 on the season. Jon Hamel
