Despite starting the season winless, the Everett High School (EHS) golf team has still played some very good golf, according to coach Steve Gallagher.
“We have a few returnees and a few players that are new to the sport,” Gallagher added. “Despite the difference in experience, they have all caught the golf bug. They genuinely want to be at the range and at the course every day. It’s an easy group to coach, and I’m lucky enough to be out there with them.”
The 2022 EHS varsity golf roster includes seniors David Saia and Matthew Turilli, juniors Makenzie Powers and Justin Longmore, sophomores Andrew Crasco and Jacob Cantone and freshman Carolyn Fama.
Medford (48-24) and the Revere/Malden co-op (46-26) defeated the locals in a tri-match. Saia was credited with an individual win on this day against the Mustangs, 5.5-3.5. He also doubled up his Revere/Malden counterpart, 6-3. Fama did the same against her Revere/Malden foe.
Lynn Classical topped the Tide, 47-25. Turilli (5.5-3.5) and Fama (5-4) were victorious versus the Rams.
Lynn English then edged Everett, 41-31. Saia (7-2) accounted for another win, this time versus the Bulldogs.
The Crimson Tide took on Somerville at Stoneham Oaks on Sept. 28, and then again on Oct. 5 at the same venue. On Oct. 13, they will head to Gannon to face both Lynn Classical and Lynn English in another tri-match. The annual Greater Boston League Tournament will follow later in October.
Field hockey stays in the mix
The Everett High School field hockey team currently sits at 2-2. They lost to Waltham (4-1) and Peabody (3-1) but have already beaten Northeast Voke (6-0) and Greater Lowell Tech (11-1).
“Despite the final score against Waltham, we had a lot of chances to put the ball in the net, but just missed,” said coach Melissa O’Donnell. “Our defense was on point making great plays and getting the ball out, and they were led by Jessica Colman, Stephany DeSouza, Tianna Allen and Taisha Alexandre. Our first-year goalie Bethy Palacios made great saves to keep us in this game, and she also got a taste of making stops on penalty strokes, coming up with a save on two Waltham chances. Our lone goal was scored by Omar Marshall on a corner assisted by Kaylee Rossi.”
Marshall also scored against Peabody. Colman was credited with an assist on the play. “It was another hard-fought game that we just came up short again,” said O’Donnell.
Kaylee Rossi paced the attack against Northeast with two goals. Christina Snook and Marshall also tacked on goals. At the other end of the field, Palacios recorded her first varsity shutout.
Marshall led the way against Greater Lowell with five goals. Snook accounted for two tallies. Kaylee Rossi chipped in with a score. Emma Longmore, Julianna Edwards and Leo Figueroa netted their first varsity goals.
