November 29: The boys' basketball season kicked off yesterday with a travel to Cornwall. The Redhawks showed up ready to play and dominated a young Cornwall team 60-12. The boys dominated all four quarters with their defense and ball movement to find open players. Ten boys scored their first baskets of the season showcasing true unselfish play and teamwork. Coach Janco was speechless, for the first time in his career, during the timeouts as he said “I have no advice to give you, keep doing what you are all doing.” The boys will hope to keep riding this winning train when they face North Canaan on 12/4.
October 25: The Lady Redhawks improved their record to 13-0 with an exciting 1-0 victory over Hotchkiss yesterday. The teams were well matched. Salisbury had many chances to score in the first half, but came up short. Finally, in the second half, Sydney scored! The girls worked hard to try to score again, but Hotchkiss’s defense was strong. Charlotte H. earned a shut-out in goal. Charlotte C., Leila, Abby, and Reka worked hard on defense to stall their offense. Molly, McD, Sage, Sydney, Alexyss, Bea and Kaitlyn kept up the pressure on the front line. Our midfielders, Lola, Mia, Ari, Haley and Josie hustled throughout the entire game. The girls finish up their season next Monday against Sharon.
October 23: The girls are coming into the home stretch of their season. They continue to play at the top of their game. They tallied another victory with a 4-1 win over Sherman yesterday. Molly put Salisbury on the board first with a low shot to the corner. Shortly after she brought the ball down the wing and put in a crisp shot over the goalie’s head. Sydney put the team up 3-0 with a quick goal at the end of the first half with less than 30 seconds left. The girls continued to dominate in the second half. Molly scored one more time off a rebound from a shot from Alexyss, giving her a hat trick. Zoe played a great game on defense along with Abby, Nichole and Midori. The midfield was led by Lola, Hannah and Josie. Catherine, Alexyss and Molly McD helped keep the pressure on Sherman’s defense, generating many scoring opportunities. The girls head to Hotchkiss on Wednesday.
October 22: The girls brought home the first place trophy after a nail biter championship game yesterday at the BCD Tournament. They started the morning by winning 1-0 against Steiner. Molly scored with less than a minute left in the game. Then they beat a tough Mount Everett team 2-0. Kaitlyn and Molly McD scored for Salisbury. Our third game we faced BCD and Lola, Molly McD, and Sage each scored to help the girls win 3-0. We met Mount Everett again in the final game. Very quickly Salisbury was down 2-0 and it was not looking promising. But Lola took matters into her own hands and scored not once, but twice off two direct kicks. Both kicks sailed over the goalie’s head. Molly never let up and kept trying to push through Everett’s defense. Finally, she broke through and scored off a strong shot past the goalie. The Redhawks were tired, but the girls managed to find that little bit of spark to win 3-2. Charlotte was stellar all day in net and only 2 balls got by her. Abby must have thrown in 30 balls thoughout the tourney and Nichole was a trapping ninja who hustled from start to finish. Midori, Ariana, Alexyss, Mia, Leila, Lucy, Caroline, Josie, and Olivia all contributed to the Redhawk’s success. The girls play Sherman again today and Hotchkiss on Wednesday.
October 21: On Saturday, the boys' soccer team played in the BCD tournament. The boys fought hard and looked good in each of the 4 games which led up to the playoffs. In game one, versus Pine Cobble, the boys were down 2-0 with only 5 minutes left. Digby and James fired in a couple of back to back shots to tie the game, and Andrej found the net in the final few seconds of the game to secure a win. The boys also defeated BCD, when Yves broke the scoreless tie in the final minute of the game. He expertly dribbled through multiple defenders and drilled the ball into the net. With 2 wins and 2 losses, the boys found themselves competing, yet again, against BCD for the 3rd place trophy. Salisbury’s one goal in this final match came after James delivered a full field pass to Digby, who was able to deliver one last time. After a long, tense game, Salisbury won 1 to 0, and took home the 3rd place trophy. The coaches could be more proud of this team. Good season, boys!
October 17: Yesterday the boys played one of their best games of the season against BCD! The first half the redhawks completely dominated the game with relentless pressure by Digby, Austin, Ruslan, Dylan, Aman, Griffin, and Yves. The redhawks went down 1-0 but quickly answered back with a goal from James off a beautiful cross from Caleb! The second half was a battle and the boys had much more opportunities than BCD! Pablo, Niko, Sasha, and Jack held a tight back line. Zach was absolutely brilliant in goal and was poised to make 12 saves and keep the redhawks in the game. Unfortunately the boys ran out of time and the game ended in a 1-1 tie. Great regular season boys, the BCD tournament is this weekend, wish them luck!
The girls tallied another win this week with a 4-1 victory over BCD yesterday. Kaitlyn started off the scoring with a goal and then Josie added her first of the season. Molly put the Redhawks up 4-0 with two tallies of her own. BCD snuck one by our defense, but Salisbury managed to stay on top until the final whistle blew. Charlotte and Lindsay each played one half as goalie. They kept BCD at bay for the entire game. Josie was the star of the game. She played a solid game at midfielder and striker. Gabby, Caroline, Lucy, Leran, Karin, and Mackenzie all received a lot of playing time and they each showed how much they have improved this season with a strong showing. The girls head back to BCD on Sunday for their tournament and Friday they meet Sharon for the first time this season. Keep us the awesome play girls!
October 16: On Monday cold winds were blowing when the Redhawk boys played North Canaan. The boys fought hard to win loose balls and create scoring opportunities. James scored first when he drove through multiple defenders and knocked it in. His second goal came after Sasha stole the ball and moved the ball up the field. Walker then sent a well placed pass to James who blasted a shot from nearly mid-field right into the corner of the net. James also had a hand in the Redhawks’ final goal, scored by Austin. Pablo and Dylan also played key roles in the game, disrupting plays and making clean passes. When all was said and done, the Redhawks tied North Canaan 3-3. The boys play BCD today, good luck boys!
The girls’ soccer team defeated Canaan yesterday 6-0. They improve their skills and raise their level of play with each game they play. Kaitlyn put us on the board early in the first half off a pass from Sydney. Then Molly capitalized on a rebound and put the Redhawks up 2-0. Shortly after, Sage subbed in the game and she broke through the defense and found the back of the net. Sydney also scored twice and Molly added her second goal of the game with an assist from Catherine. Hannah was the star of the game. She was a trapping ninja, playing her best game of the season. Lola and Midori were a tag team limiting Canaan’s shots on goal. Leila, Zoe, and Abby also worked hard for Salisbury on defense. Nichole and Charlotte guarded the net once again and combined their efforts for another shut-out. The girls travel to BCD today and Sharon on Friday. Our girls have made their coaches, parents and school very proud.
October 12: On Thursday afternoon, the Redhawk boys faced Kent. This was sure to be a good match, considering the two teams tied in their last confrontation. The brilliant blaze of the sun forced player, coaches, and fans to squint and shield their eyes as the action commenced. Kent came on strong and looked thirsty for possession, but it was the Redhawks who drew first blood. Caleb slipped a ball through the Kent defense and James was there to put it into the back of the net. Kent followed-up with a goal, but were unable to get off many more shots in the first half due to the strong Redhawk defense. Ruslan, Dylan, Andrej, and Zim worked the midfield and advanced the ball time and again. The Redhawk’s second goal came when Digby got his own rebound and crossed the ball to Davonte, who snuck it by the keeper. Soon after, James scored once more after working the ball past multiple Kent defensemen. Early in the 2nd half, Kent tied the game 3-3. The rest of the game was tense and scoreless. Zach had a stellar game in goal. He recorded 9 saves in the second half alone. The 2 ties between Kent and Salisbury this year show that the Redhawks are as competitive as any team in Region 1. Well done boys!
October 5: The Lady Redhawks are on a roll. They faced an aggressive Sherman team yesterday for the first time and beat them 2-1. Sherman went up 1-0 in the first half after a scuffle in front of the net. The teams were evenly matched, but 2 scoring 2 goals in the second half made the difference. Catherine was the star of the game scoring her first goal of the season (bloody knee and all). Then Sydney scored a little while later with a crisp low shot to the corner. For the remainder of the half, Salisbury was on the defense. Abby, Lola, Midori, Zoe and Nichole worked tirelessly to clear the ball and prevent Sherman from tying the score. Nichole and Charlotte H. shared the job of defending the goal. They did great work fending off Sherman’s offense. The girls play Kent home next Thursday.
October 4: The boys lost to a hard fought scrimmage to a talented Steiner team yesterday 6-3. Unfortunately, the redhawks defense could not keep pace with some of Steiner‘s quick forwards. The boys did receive solid goalkeeping from Graham in the first half and Jack and Pablo in the second half making a combined total of 14 saves! The boys did show great teamwork as each goal was provided by a lovely assist. Digby scored first with a rocket of a volley off of Austin’s corner. Digby then slid a perfect through ball pass to Aman for his first goal of the game. The redhawks third came late in the second half with Caleb’s beautiful corner kick. Aman bested every Steiner player to the ball and scored the redhawks first header of the year! Other play worthy contributions were given by Zach, Otto, Dylan, Yves, and Zim, who made his first start of the year! Next game is next Thursday at home vs. Kent!
The girls extended their winning streak with a 3-1 victory over Steiner yesterday. Sydney led the scoring with a penalty kick and a bomb of a shot from the 18. Molly scored early in the first half off of a cross from Sydney. Gabby played solid defense. Charlotte H. and Caroline shared the job of protecting the net. The girls travel to Sherman tomorrow. Redhawks rock!
October 2: The boys team came out strong, during last night's outing at Kent Center School, and they never stopped hustling. Early in the game, Kent scored on a high flying, well placed goal. Digby immediately responded with a worm-burner into the lower corner of the net. The midfielders battled hard to win possession and advance the ball. Aman had his best game yet. Twice, he slipped his way through a handful of defenders and, with the grace of five swans, he carefully tapped in the ball. With a score of 3-3, the Redhawk defense made sure the Kent team went scoreless for the final 20 minutes of the game. The play of the game was when Graham made a diving one handed save with less than 3 minutes left in the game. This tie will long be remembered by those who witnessed the game. Special shout out to Zach and Graham, who split the goaltending duties, and recorded 8 saves a piece.
The girls beat Kent yesterday in a hard fought battle. The players, fans, and coaches could not breathe easy until late in the second half. Kent went up 1-0 early in the game, but Sydney tied it up on the next play. Later in the half Sydney took a hard shot and Molly got the rebound and literally tumbled herself and the ball into the goal to put the Redhawks up 2-1. Unfortunately, Kent gained momentum and tied the score off of a shot from the wing. This got Salisbury fired up. Sydney took matters into her own hands and went end to end to put us up 3-2. Then late in the game Molly cruised down the field and made a beautiful cross which was deflected by Catherine and then Kaitlyn put it in. Charlotte H., Abby and Midori were the defensive stars of the game. Zoe had the play of the game with a body block in the front of the net, which prevented Kent from scoring. Nichole played the whole game in net and she made many saves that helped Salisbury keep the lead. The Redhawks win 4-2. The girls travel to Steiner on Wednesday and Sherman on Thursday.
September 28: Yesterday the boys soccer team was defeated by a very tough and skilled Cornwall/Kellogg team 6-2. The boys showed true grit and determination to not give up and to keep fighting for every 50/50 ball. Digby scored a nice long shot over the keeper in the first half and Pablo added his first goal of the season with a perfectly placed shot in the corner in the second half. Zach and Graham both made key important saves throughout the game to keep the Redhawks chances alive. Other notably tough performances were given by Caleb, Gabriel, Ruslan, Yves, Niko, Aman, and Andrej. Next game is Monday away against Kent.
The Lady Redhawks improved their record to 3-0 with a 5-2 win over Cornville yesterday. The girls played as a team and it was certainly a team victory. Molly and Molly Mc each scored a pair of goals. Lola added the fifth. Charlotte H. and Lindsay each played one half in goal. They each made many saves to keep Cornville off the board. Ariana and Mia were relentless and pushed themselves when they were on the field. They receive the Hustle Award. The girls head to face a tough Kent team on Monday. Go Redhawks!
September 25: Well Redhawk fans, the girls soccer game yesterday at Segalla Field was surely one to remember. The players were dripping with sweat before the game even started from merely walking to the bench. The sun was unbearable. Ironically the Lady Redhawks waited until the 4th quarter to warm up. Salisbury had many scoring chances in the 1st quarter. The ball went over, beside and possibly under the net, but not in! Canaan’s goalie did everything but stand on her head. Canaan went up 1-0 in the 2nd quarter and our girls were struggling to keep up their stamina. No need to worry, Sydney tied the score with a crisp shot late in the 3rd quarter, but Canaan would not let up. They scored on a corner kick to go up 2-1. After a mid quarter pep talk-it was now or never, Salisbury was literally on fire. Every player from the goalie(Hannah) to attack dug deep and fought hard. Sydney took a strong shot on net and Molly made sure the rebound found the back of the net. We were tied 2-2. It was looking like we were headed for a tie, but with 30 seconds left the Sydney-Molly combination struck again...SCORE!!! Salisbury wins with a buzzer beater 3-2. The crowd went wild! Nichole and Hannah worked hard in the net, only letting a goal in each. Lola gets the Hustle Award because even in the heat, she never stopped not hustling from start to finish.
September 20: Last Wednesday, the boys' soccer team took on a strong IMS team. The Redhawks showed great teamwork, ball movement, and communication throughout the game. Despite a first half goal by IMS, the Redhawks took advantage of opportunities. Davonte scored off of an assist from Aman, and Digby added two goals, making the final score Redhawks 3, IMS 1. Our defense, led by Griffin, Pablo, Jack, Easton, Sasha, Gabriel, Niko, and Otto, shut down the opposition time and time again. Zach defended the goal the entire game, recorded 9 saves, and 1 assist. Great job, Redhawks! Today they will travel to North Canaan.
September 18: The boys opened the 2017 season against a tough Cornwall/Kellogg team! Cornwall/Kellogg opened the scoring quickly in the first half putting in two goals in the first 10 minutes! They added one more before the end of the half! Pablo made some critical saves in the first half to keep the Redhawks within a comeback situation! The Redhawks refused to give up and came out in the second half fighting! Notable never-give-up attitudes were put in by Austin, Caleb, Graham, Griffin, Dylan, and Andrej. The Redhawks were able to net two beautiful goals by Davonte and Digby! Unfortunately, the Redhawks ran out of time for a comeback win and lost 3-2. Zach made some game changing saves in the second half in goal. The Redhawks will face IMS this Wednesday at the school field! Come support your boys!
The girls soccer team began their season with a strong victory yesterday against Cornville. It was a team effort, scoring a total of 8 goals and only allowing 2. Charlotte H. and Haley were fearless in the net. Salisbury’s scoring was led by Kaitlyn with 2 goals. Molly, Sage, Molly Mc, Sydney, Ariana, and Lola each added one a piece. Midori was “unstoppable” at stopper (actually sweeper). She shut Cornville down on countless occasions with her speed and determination. The star of the game was Mia who played hard and smart in her debut as a middle school player. The Redhawks travel to Canaan next Monday. Way to go girls!
