Beantown Battle!!

What a fun Sunday for our Youth and High School teams competing in the 4 v 4 “Beantown Battle” at the new Union Point Sports Complex! Our teams played small sided half field games all day, a great opportunity to work on our spacing, teamwork, and stick work in tight spaces.  These games highlighted stick work, shooting form and the agility of our players! We are so glad we had so many teams come out to play, and the coaching staff was impressed by how much each player and team improved as the day went on.  Shout out to our GOALIES for fielding tons of shots, and switching back and fourth with the opposing team – you rocked!

And now onto our Players of the Weekend!!!

Tye played well on both sides of the ball and singlehandedly brought the Patriots our third win by beating a Mass Elite player in a Brave Heart!

2023 Bruins: Sally Hunter! Sally added so much to our defense with her relentless effort and field sense. She quickly recognized when she should slide, always locked on the double team, and had her stick in the passing lane when she realized that she had 2 players. Her constant pressure caused turnovers, forced bad passes, and flustered our opponents. Although she may be little she be fierce!!

2023 Red Sox: Kaitlin Watts! Kaitlin played very well this weekend. She lead the offense with strong drives to the net. She scored on nearly every shot after throwing a Great fake.

2022 Shamrock: Maddie Miller!  Maddy consistently worked hard throughout the day. She never took a play off, and because of this, she caused turnovers on defense, and made standout plays on the offensive end!  Maddie made a significant impact in the small sided 4v4 setting! Great work Maddie!

2022 Hunter: Casey Mitchell!  Casey was a leader on the field, getting herself open on the crease, as well as sharing the ball with her teammates.  She was always re-defending, looking for the open player, and sliding quickly.  Casey also shined on ground ball possessions, boxing out her opposition and beating them to the ball ball. As always, Casey was coachable, listening to feedback and making changes.  Casey’s smile and enthusiasm is contagious and she helped contribute to our teams overall energy and success!

2022 Army: Stella MacLellan!  Stella worked extremely hard during each game. She made smart decisions with the ball on offense and was not scared to drive hard to goal! She matched up quickly on defense and communicated very well. Stella also helped our team win 3 games by winning THREE brave hearts! She won the draw for each brave heart and did not back down, even when she turned the ball over during the last one. She battled it out and came out on top!

2022 Emerald: Eva Chouinard! Eva was on fire at the Beantown Battle! Her offense, defense and shooting were amazing.  She played aggressively, with confidence and made good decisions all over the field.

2020 Orange: Caroline Linscott! She did all the things we emphasize in practice! She battled for ground balls using her body to box out players from other teams. She doubled the ball and forced turnovers on defense.  On offense she was setting picks and doing X cuts! She also got a couple goals by great cuts on the crease and “draw and dumps”. Couldn’t ask for more as a coach!

2020 Red: Mattea Del Peschio! Mattea was all over the field on Sunday! She put pressure on the ball, slid to the double teams, drove to the cage, and helped her teammates balance the field. She was versatile, and gave it 150% every time she stepped on the field.  Mattea has a drive to compete, and does a great job of bringing up the energy for her entire team. Great work Mattea!

All Elite Tournament Wrap up!

This past weekend, we had the opportunity to attend our first winter tournament in Plymouth, The All Elite Tournament!

As a club, we were ready for the challenge, and had 2 teams win their division! Way to go Hunter and Celtic!! We are so proud of how all of our girls played!!!!

  A message from ALL coaches…

HIT THE WALL! Across all age groups, we need to clean up our stick skills. We have put a lot of time in during practices to work on our stick work, but it is SO IMPORTANT that you do your part outside of practice so we can move on to new concepts! During practices we will be starting stick work competitions. You will be competing against different locations to see what location can finish their stick work first….that means that YOU need to do your part by working on stick work outside of practice.
