Hollis Brookline youth soccer teams play well over weekend

U11 Boys

The HB BU11 game versus Salem was a very exciting game by all accounts with six goals in total and box-to-box action in a 3-3 tie. HB opened the score with a great goal by Patrick Cullen right before halftime. The second half started with a quick counter attack from Salem and an equalizer. HB countered with a brace by Oliver Weissman capped by a phenomenal side volley to the upper 90 from 5 yards outside the box. A succession of lapses by the HB defense lead to two quick goals by Salem. The equalizer was a screamer from outside the HB penalty box. The guys from HB had more chances to put the game away but the Salem goalkeeper came up with a series of great saves to close out the tie.

U10 Girls

The Hollis Brookline Cavaliers U10 girls played very well in a successful weekend of soccer. On Saturday, the Cavs had a back-and-forth game with the Exeter Hawks that came down to the last minute, ending in a tie. The girls worked hard on both the offensive and defensive end of the field. Sunday’s game against the Hampstead Hurricanes was extremely well played by the Cavs as they shut out the Hurricanes, winning handily.

For the weekend, goals were scored by Juliette Ogren, Ava Berry, Kiera King, McKenna McGuire, and Rosalie DeSantis. The defense was anchored by Meghan Warren and Anuhya Chilakapti with Bailey Dunn in goal. Izzy St. John, Audrie Green, Charlotte Petrella and Charlotte Vanderpool contributed with aggressive play and nice passing. Next weekend the HB Cavs U10 girls play in the World Cup Columbus Day tournament at Nashua North High School.
